Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and online test prep, has announced a new partnership with Zinch, a Chegg Company and an online resource for college preparation and admissions. Shmoop has offered valuable teaching and learning resources for years, but they know that students often benefit when educators combine efforts.

The two companies are offering a six-month program during which Zinch users will have special access to Shmoop material through Chegg Presents Zinch Prep, a college counseling program providing information and materials to guide high school seniors through the college admissions process.

By registering on Zinch, a high school student acquires exclusive access to any one test prep resource, be it for the SAT, ACT, or PSAT. Of course, once a student tries one, they'll want to collect the whole set. No worries - they can always head over to Shmoop, where a wealth of additional instructional materials awaits them.

Both Shmoop and Zinch are leaders in the college readiness category, and have proven track records of putting valuable resources in the hands of college-bound students, and helping more of them set their sights on success in post-secondary school and beyond, according to the announcement.

Zinch offers access to numerous scholarships, and aids in the college recruiting process, while Shmoop boasts a continually growing library of study guides, as well as test prep materials to help students on federally mandated tests.
