Student Weaknesses Blog Series Announcement

The test prep experts at ArborBridge are excited to announce our newest blog series, How to Overcome Common Student Weaknesses on the SAT and ACT.

While every student is unique in his or her strengths and weaknesses, there are certainly still noticeable trends among all students who sit for the SAT or ACT. Through heavy analysis of diagnostic exams and practice tests throughout ArborBridge student programs, our team has put together an extensive list of the most common weaknesses seen on both tests, and more importantly, how to overcome them.

What can you expect to read about?

Each post highlights one specific student weaknesses then breaks down a) how to recognize the problem at hand, b) ways to effectively approach the problem, and c) sample questions students might see on the exam relating to the problem.

We have already published three posts of this series! In case you missed them:
