PSAT Preparation

Typically taken in the fall of the junior year, the PSAT/NMSQT measures content learned in high school and provides an introduction to the critical thinking skills necessary for success on the SAT. With three sections — Reading, Writing and Language, Math — the PSAT/NMSQT requires two hours and forty-five minutes of actual testing. For those who want a head start, the College Board also offers the PSAT 8/9 and PSAT 10 examinations.

The PSAT/NMSQT: Test Overview

  • Reading (47 questions, 60 minutes)
  • Writing and Language (44 questions, 35 minutes)
  • Math (48 questions, 70 minutes)

B has been selected as a winner of the National Merit $2500 Scholarship. Thank you, Lynn, for taking time last year to discuss the possibility with me. The classes B took for the PSAT, SAT, and SAT Subject Tests were fantastic. He couldn’t have done better!

My son was accepted early to Dartmouth. He was just notified that he is a National Merit Finalist. He took the SAT twice as his calculator didn’t work the first time he took them. So he got 800 both times on the Critical Reading, Math 690 then 770 and Writing 740 to 760. Rick and all your staff helped – no question.

I wanted to share with you the great news. R. scored a total of 227, with a 70 in Critical Reading, 80 in Math, and 77 in Writing. These scores are a 52 point increase from his PSAT last year. Peter and Austin were his PSAT teachers. R. is thrilled at the results. I was glad that he went into the PSAT feeling confident and prepared.

Hey Austin,

I just wanted to thank you for everything. I just received my PSAT scores, and thanks to your help I scored a 76 in Math. I know for a fact that this score is a direct result of your help, so I just wanted to take the time to express my appreciation for your effort and time. Thank you.

Hey Jeff and Marshall,

Just finished up the [PSAT] about 15 minutes ago and it went awesome! I remember taking it last year and felt overwhelmed with the timing and number of questions I was required to answer. The course definitely prepared me to be a better test taker. Looking forward to getting scores and sending them your way!
