The Mental Side Of Test Prep

Listen to this episode

In this episode, I interview our all-star tutor, Marissa, about the differences between the SAT and ACT, and how to figure out which test is best.


Marissa has been working with Lockwood Test Prep for about a year and a half now, I met her through a few mutual clients who raved about her and her uncanny ability to help kids’ skyrocket their scores in a ridiculously short amount of time.


I cajoled her into revealing five, universal tips for test takers, whether they’re taking the SAT or ACT.


It was a live webinar, so we got a ton of questions from our listeners, such as:

  • Which test to colleges prefer, ACT or SAT?
  • Which test is harder?
  • How much does the writing section count on either test?
  • How do you figure out what your true best score is?
  • More!


I think you’ll love this interview.  


Thanks for listening!
