yea, i kinda figured that too. on first test verbal: 10 wrong - 620. and they changed my answer for the math grid-in!!
and 630 writing - 8 wrong, 8 essay.
3rd time: 4 wrong in reading - 770 ; 2 wrong in grammar - 80 grammar, and 8 essay - 740
i think they do that to keep un-0enlightened students in the dark , and use it as leverage to say that you are improving, and encourage the student.
also, the 200 pt guarantee is for the real SAT. the problem is that they say they will work with you untill u reach your 200 pt increase- but who has the time and effort to do something that didnt work for them the first time?
those few details i just mentioned are unethical in my opinion, but then again, they are a business and need to make money
Well, like all things with a “money-back guarantee,” there are strings and catches everywhere! But, yeah, I think they mean on the SAT itself, not on the practice tests you take as part of the course.
That said, I’m convinced that one of the main purposes of test prep courses is to give you confidence. It does seem a bit dishonest, but really you aren’t supposed to notice that, lol. You’re supposed to go away from that second diagnostic test FEELING like you’ve improved, so you can go into the real SAT feeling like you’re going to do well! At least—to give them the benefit of the doubt—that would be my guess. And in general the more prepared you feel, the better you’re going to do, especially on tests like the SAT—so it’s in their best interest to make you think you’re improving… and, you’re right, it's a bit dishonest. But I probably wouldn’t go so far as “unethical”. It’s also in their best interests for you to really do well on the SAT. They have a reputation to maintain, after all, and they really do get good results with whatever method they’re using…
