Shmoop has launched Video Test Prep, enabling students using their smartphones to study in quick bursts whenever they have a few minutes to spare.
When a student registers, Shmoop will send them three videos a day, tailored to their SAT, ACT, or CAHSEE needs. Students can then watch the videos in the convenience of their own home/school/bus/circus tent. And there’s no need to set a study reminder: Shmoop will automatically send the videos, prompting students to watch.
Each video includes a sample exam question and walks students through the process of answering it. By providing detailed answer explanations, Shmoop fosters comprehension, so that students don’t just get practice with one question; they are able to improve their skills for an entire concept.
Shmoop will send these videos directly to a student’s inbox every day for 30 days; by the end of the month, students will have reviewed the equivalent of a full-length practice exam. Bonus: each video is tagged to the Common Core.
