This section is for Ivy Bound Clients. If you are not an Ivy Bound Client and would like to take a Practice Test, please contact Robin Lane at: robin@ivybound.net for fee information.


Practice Tests are FREE for Ivy Bound Students. NON-Ivy Bound students are welcome to attend for a fee of $75, or 2/$125 (unless otherwise noted)

For SAT and/or ACT students, we recommend at least five full-length Practice Tests prior to your first real SAT or ACT. Two or more of these should be in group situations. Please make a commitment to join us on at least two occasions (or at least one if you have taken an actual SAT or ACT already). Ivy Bound will hold these in any area where there are SIX or more students committed*. In addition, we offer testing by phone or internet every month.

Group testing is important because you need to be acclimated to actual test conditions. Knowing what to expect on the test, and what to expect of yourself, will help you get the most out of the real test. Practice testing is done with College Board tests (and actual past ACT tests), so we simulate the conditions as closely as possible. Testing with a group minimizes the chance that an external condition distracts you.  After two group practice tests, rarely will the real test present a surprising situation. Those taking the essay will receive a score within 3 days,  All students will leave with a multiple-choice score.

Ivy Bound offers a group review of the test online on the Sunday evening of the testing weekend: SAT 9:15pm Eastern, ACT 8:15pm Eastern. We cannot cover all the questions, but we do some “tough” ones from the day’s test and review strategies. Your tutor can cover the remaining troublesome questions, and we suggest giving the tutor a list of these troublesome questions in an advance email.

Should you desire dates other than those listed below, Ivy Bound can provide proctors and come right to you. The fee is $150 to come to the home (more if using a site with a rental charge). The fee is reduced should others join in. We suggest a four-week advance notice should you want a proctored test on a date other than those listed below.
