Shmoop Offers Test Prep for the ISEE

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, announces the launch of a new study guide to help students prepare for the Lower Level Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE).

Shmoop believes that there are plenty of bright, motivated 4th- and 5th-grade students who want to grab their futures by the horns and take an active part in improving the quality of their own educations. For those brave souls, or for students being coerced into taking the test by your parents, there is help.

After reading our ISEE test prep, a student will:

●    Understand how answering sentence completion questions can help them track down globetrotting criminals, or vice versa. ●    Realize why Ti Quan Do is more than just a misspelled martial art and can help them kick some reading comprehension butt. ●    Learn what driving a Ferrari blindfolded* has to do with unit conversions. And no, this is not about converting your vehicle to scrap metal. ●    Ponder whether eating eighty pounds of Skittles is really all that bad, especially considering what it could teach a student about algebraic word problems. Taste the rainbow… of knowledge. (Corniness intended.)

*Performed only by professionals. Do not try this at home.

In addition to showing a student exactly what they can expect on test day and how they can prepare for the ISEE, Shmop's guide provides an in-depth topic review that covers both the Math and Verbal portions of the exam. Then, when a student is done reviewing the material, take the drills and practice exams to get in the zone.

Shmoop’s ISEE test prep guide will help students prepare for the biggest test of your life… until the 8th grade, anyway.
