When Prep Expert reached out and asked if I’d like to review their SAT/ACT prep programs, my curiosity piqued. A quick Google showed that not only was Prep Expert featured on Shark Tank, it actually garnered a significant investment from Mark Cuban!
I like Shark Tank, I like Mark Cuban, and I like education…so obviously I said yes!
You know I’m all about the story, and Prep Expert founder Shaan Patel has an incredible one. As he describes it, he grew up in his parents’ budget Las Vegas motel, trapped in a school district with a 40% dropout rate…the worst school district in the country.
The first time Patel took the SAT, his scores weren’t anything special. Then he realized the power the SAT, spent hundreds of hours studying, and became one of the nation’s perfect-scorers. For some perspective, only about .02%-.04% of students receive a perfect score on the SAT, so this is nothing to sneeze at!
Patel’s life forever changed as a result of his improved SAT scores. He received offers from Ivy League schools, $250,000 in scholarships, and was even invited to meet the president of the United States. He went on to receive an MBA and (!) MD. Today, in addition to furthering his medical studies, he’s committed to helping other students realize the same life-changing results he experienced.
Like I said, I very much consider Prep Expert to be a traditional SAT prep program like Kaplan or Princeton Review. However, given the lower price tag, you should know that the guarantees are smaller. Prep Expert only guarantees a score improvement. For about 10 times the price, Princeton Review guarantees a certain score.
Would I recommend Prep Expert? If you’re looking for a traditional SAT prep program, absolutely. It has all the tools you need to improve your SAT score, or even land a perfect score. Those results can help secure an offer letter from your dream school, garner scholarships, and springboard you to a better future.
