How To Plan and Prepare for SAT® Subject Tests
Planning out the best times to take these exams can be tricky, as most students are also juggling dates to take the SAT® or ACT. We often recommend that strong students take their first Subject Test as early as grade 9. Typically, we like students to take the Subject Test as soon after they’ve completed a course as possible.
Our approach to preparing for these exams is much like that of the SAT® or ACT: a proven mix of drill work, skill building, test-taking strategy, and practice on real exams.

AP exams (advanced placement exams) are college level tests administered by the College Board. While students are not required to complete AP courses prior to taking the exam, students tend to perform better on the exams when they take the corresponding course. Most high schools offer a selection of AP courses. Find a complete list of AP exams HERE.
Why Take AP Exams?
Unlike SAT Subject Tests, AP exams are not a college admissions requirement. However, when students sit for an AP exam and earn a passing grade, they can earn college credit, which is why preparing for these exams with a trusted test prep coach is a worthwhile investment.
