STOP! Look no further for the absolute best online math test prep program. This groundbreaking technology adapts to each student. MathChops includes every ACT and SAT math skill taught in a fun and interactive way. Work on the specific skills that need reinforcement or create a quiz of missed problems with different numbers. The adaptive games maximize efficiency between sessions by eliminating questions that are too easy or too hard. The numbers change each time a question appears, so students never run out of good material. The software program is just brilliant. As a Test Prep Professional, Leia LeMaster Horton (Horton Test Prep), uses it for all of her students and highly recommends anyone preparing for college entrance exams try just 15 minutes per day. Psst! She’s sure it was a combination of MathChops and being coached through past real SAT tests that helped two of her previous students score a perfect 800!
