Metro Mama & Metro Baby

If you have teens, tweens, or even future teens, then you’ll appreciate the benefits of Kaplan’s online classes, which render essential test prep as convenient, easy, and effective. I know, because I used my own teen as a tester for the efficacy of the online SAT test tutorials and the verdict from him was a resounding thumbs-up. Many thanks to Kaplan for giving us access to the Live Online MCAT Prep course for the purposes of offering an unbiased review.

Here’s how it works: you can take a free practice test at to see how you’ll fare and establish a baseline. Then, choose your SAT test prep options, which encompass Live Online Essentials (online only), Prep Course (online + in person) and Prep Course PLUS (online and in person with extra help). My son chose Live Online Essentials and would attend on online, live tutorial every Sunday evening in which he could freely ask questions and interact with the instructor. He was mailed a packet of materials and enjoyed 40 hours of self-scheduled video tutorials that covered every conceivable test topic.

He could receive immediate one-on-one feedback and help during the interactive sessions and had access to 1,000+ sample questions and the Kaplan prep library. There’s also a Kaplan prep mobile app, and options for a customized plan tailored to your child’s specific needs.

The result? He said he definitely felt ready and well prepared for the test that would, to a great extent, shape his future by determining his college choices. Choosing the online option enabled him to enjoy his summer and simply log in from wherever he roamed.

Kaplan also offers test prep for the ACT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT and other tests. Visit the Kaplan site at to read more and enroll in a test prep option that could set your child on a positive trajectory for the future.

It literally couldn’t be more convenient for busy teenagers.
