Veritas Prep announced Aug. 20 its expansion into the undergraduate market with the launch of its SAT prep course, Veritas Prep SAT 2400.
With the addition of the SAT course, the company is now one of the largest global providers of test prep and admissions consulting services.
The course was developed with Shaan Patel, director of SAT Programs at Veritas Prep and one of the few test takers in the world to achieve a perfect 2400 on the SAT, making it the only global SAT prep course created by a perfect SAT score recipient, according to a press release.
To date, more than 9.2 million students have taken the new SAT worldwide and fewer than 2000 have received a perfect score, it added.
Patel originally was not a good standardized test-taker in high school. He attended urban public schools in disadvantaged neighborhoods in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the first time he took a practice SAT, he scored 1760. Although the score was respectable, the young Indian American wasn't satisfied.
After adopting a set of strategies to master the exam, in his senior year, Patel took the SAT again and scored a perfect 2400.
Patel's perfect score enabled him to gain admission to prestigious universities, secure over $230,000 in scholarships, and receive several national awards.
Now, the course he has developed combines Veritas Prep's test preparation philosophy with the strategies and techniques that helped him master the exam.
"Ten years ago Veritas Prep's 'think like the test maker' approach to test prep, along with its longer course format and higher instructor standards, revolutionized the way students prepared for the GMAT. A decade later, with the launch of Veritas Prep SAT 2400, we have now reinvented SAT prep," Chad Troutwine, co-founder and CEO of Veritas Prep, stated in a press release.
"We built Veritas Prep SAT 2400 on the philosophy that SAT mastery begins with smart strategies. It is not about how much you are able to memorize or your grades in high school. This course helps students achieve their highest possible score."
Following the model the company established when it was first founded, in-person and live online Veritas Prep SAT 2400 courses are both longer than other courses and require instructors to have scored in the 99th percentile on the exam.
Additionally, Veritas Prep offers a zero risk, money-back guarantee: if a student's score doesn't go up from a previous official SAT or converted PSAT, they can take the course again at no charge or receive a full refund, no questions asked.
"Like many students, I struggled with standardized tests in high school. After a disappointing score on my first practice test, I dedicated myself to learning every aspect of the SAT until I finally mastered the exam," said Patel.
"Veritas Prep SAT 2400 captures and shares every strategy, method and approach I used to achieve a perfect 2400 and it is designed with the student's perspective at its foundation. Unlike most courses that use technical language and complex terminology, Veritas Prep SAT 2400 is engaging and makes the information easy to digest and understand,” he added.
Every Veritas Prep SAT 2400 course includes a full SAT 2400 On Demand HD Online course featuring Patel; a zero risk money-back guarantee; 36 hours of instruction; and strict instructor standards in which all instructors must score in the 99th percentile on the SAT and be adept at teaching the SAT.
The course also offer ten official practice tests; Patel's best-selling book “SAT 2400 in Just 7 Steps: Perfect Score Student Reveals How to Ace the Test” published by McGraw Hill; unlimited access to Veritas Prep instructors; a Veritas Prep SAT 2400 workbook and a Veritas Prep SAT 2400 vocabulary builder.
