Shmoop Launches SmartPhone-Ready Video Test Prep to Help Students Study for SAT*, ACT*, and CAHSEE

Shmoop delivers free Test Prep videos to students via email, allowing them to study quickly and rigorously.

Shmoop's Video Test Prep

When it comes to cram time, students want their information—stat. With Shmoop’s Video Test Prep, students can study in quick bursts whenever they have a few minutes to spare.

When a student registers, Shmoop will send them three videos a day, tailored to their SAT*, ACT*, or CAHSEE needs. Students can then watch the videos in the convenience of their own home/school/bus/circus tent. And there’s no need to set a study reminder: Shmoop will automatically send the videos, prompting students to watch. Plus, because the videos are relatable, they won’t end in an unplanned nap.

Each video includes a sample exam question and walks students through the process of answering it. By providing detailed answer explanations, Shmoop fosters comprehension, so that students don’t just get practice with one question; they are able to improve their skills for an entire concept.

Shmoop will send these videos directly to a student’s inbox every day for thirty days; by the end of the month, students will have reviewed the equivalent of a full-length practice exam. Bonus: each video is tagged to the Common Core. It’s every teacher’s dream.

Go ahead and sign up—Shmoop will take care of the rest.
