Tests are important gateways to academic and professional success or people who are in school, applying to college or graduate school, seeking certification, or planning a job search, career change, or to take the civil service exam.
The way you take a test can be as important as the material you study, yet few people learn test-taking skills. Ace That Test was developed by father and son educators, counselors, and researchers Edward Yarosz, Ed.D. and Donald Yarosz, Ed.D. They noticed that student performance in class did not predict success on tests and set about to help students show what they know. Ace That Test is an online program, starting with a diagnostic and prescriptive test to identify areas for improvement. Then a series of exercises help develop those skills in the classroom or the convenience of your own home, on your schedule, at your pace.
