What sets ExcelEdge apart from other test preparation programs?

“ExcelEdge courses are taught by experienced, highly qualified, and certified educators.  It provides students of all levels with numerous sample tests in order to familiarize themselves with the exam’s structure and working through practice problems/passages to identify strengths, gaps, and pacing needs within their test-taking.  ExcelEdge then offers relevant strategies to increase scores and some skill/content review as well.  Students walk away with a full-length practice test under their belts, recommended areas for further review, and the confidence that they will be successful on the exam”
