Students who take college admissions tests "cold" are increasingly at a disadvantage. ZAPS delivers quality seminars and targeted study materials at a reasonable price.
ZAPS test-preparation seminars can give you the competitive edge you need to do your very best. And that's the goal, after all.
We can't turn an average student into the class valedictorian in a five-hour session. But we can help you get ready to compete in this awesome challenge as you prepare for your future. Getting ready for a test is every bit as important as it is for any competition. Let us help you prepare for the PSAT, the SAT, or the ACT. Register for a ZAPS test-preparation seminar today!

Strategy-focused sEMINARS and Webinars
The ZAPS ACT seminar or webinar and the ZAPS PSAT/SAT seminar or webinar are designed to help you get ready for these important exams. ZAPS test specialists present the ZAPS ACT or PSAT/SAT seminars at local high schools or online, where you can access them from the comfort and convenience of home. Your seminar or webinar may be scheduled on a single day or over two consecutive afternoons or evenings. Some schools also host seminars during the school day.
During your strategy-focused seminar or webinar, you can expect to:
- Sharpen your thinking skills
- Learn effective strategies
- Practice time-management techniques
- Learn tips that increase your opportunity for success on the test
- Get study materials to use for practice at home
- Take shortened practice tests (about 20 minutes each) to immediately reinforce what you learn
Schools in the U.S. typically accept either the SAT or the ACT scores to make admissions and scholarship decisions. Because these tests are different, many students do better on one test than on the other.
If you're applying to a highly competitive school or are vying for scholarship funds, consider taking both tests, then submit your better score. Taking both ZAPS seminars will give you even more of an advantage over your peers.
I went to the PSAT/SAT seminar in the fall
of last year. ZAPS hasn't let me down!
Thanks so much!
