Greenwich Library to Offer Free Online SAT Prep Course

| 5 Comments

Greenwich Library has relaunched PrepMe, a new SAT test preparation service, to local students for free.

PrepMe is a premium test preparation company dedicated to bringing high-quality, customized learning to students across the world. PrepMe makes customized test preparation affordable and accessible while providing highly impactful results and learning for students and their families.

"With the exception of expensive private tutors, what's out there has always been a mass-market approach," said PrepMe CEO Karan Goel in an interview with CNN/Money. "We're changing the way test preparation is taught."

PrepMe will identify strengths and weaknesses and create a custom week-by-week schedule to help teens raise their SAT scores. The course is available at no cost to students with just a library card. To access the program 24 hours a day, log on through Greenwich Library's website www.greenwichlibrary.org.

"Particularly in this economy, this service provides a tremendous value for Greenwich students," said Greenwich Library Teen Services Librarian Margaret Walsh. "It also offers convenience for busy students, who can prepare their own schedules without parents having to worry about shuttling them back and forth to classes."

"Test preparation classes in our community can cost anywhere from $600 to $1200 or more. Offering PrepMe for free to local students is just one more way the library saves you money," said Walsh.

For more information, please contact Teen Services Librarian Margaret Walsh at 203-622-7915.

DomeSATReview is another great free SAT resource.

Hello,
I am very interested in PrepMe. How would I be able to use this service through Greenwich library? I have a libary card.

Hi Andrea: Here's what you can do:
Go to our website and click on the Research and Resources link on the left. This will take you to a list of online resources. From this list choose the "find an article" link. Then click on "education" in the subject list. Prep Me will be listed third on that list. The first time you use Prep Me you have to create an acoount. There is a clear link on the page to do so. Once that is done you should be able to login every time with the password you have created and take some practice tests.

Thanks for your interest.

Thank you for your help. I have not been able to create an account though. Everytime I type in my library barcode # it says "invalied library barcode #"

Hello Andrea,

It sounds like we may need to troubleshoot your account from our end to determine the issue. If you could contact us at your convenience (please use this link: http://www.greenwichlibrary.org/ContactUs.aspx?contact=Webmaster ) with your full name and library card number (as well as a contact email) we will work to resolve this for you. Thanks!
