ePrep Now Available to BCPL Patrons!

Prince Frederick, MD, 28 September 2010: Recorded Books LLC, in partnership with ePrep, Inc., is pleased to announce the launch of a new library version of ePrep’s revolutionary suite of online, video-based study programs. This partnership will allow libraries to offer patrons the opportunity to improve SAT, ACT, PSAT, and PLAN scores without paying the excessive fees associated with private tutoring or classroom courses. With over 90 percent of college-bound students taking either the SAT or ACT each year, earning high scores has never been more important. SAT and ACT scores are not only critical in gaining admission to college, but also in qualifying for attractive merit-based scholarships.

ePrep successfully uses expert instructors to deliver a student-adaptable learning experience that patrons can access within the library or remotely. Using a proprietary video delivery platform that replicates the private tutor experience, ePrep makes test preparation easy. “We’re pleased to deliver a product to libraries that will aid students in preparing for one of the most important tests they’ll ever take,” said Jim Schmidt, Vice President of Product Development at Recorded Books.

All of ePrep’s study programs employ the proven practice-grade-review cycle of learning: Students take practice tests under timed conditions; have them graded online; and immediately launch into video reviews. ePrep’s Study Hall tracks student progress throughout each course and guides remedial efforts, while WordSmith encourages vocabulary building. A Parent Center allows parents to track student progress non-intrusively, while ePrep’s Study Scheduler helps students stay on track. “With multiple ways to use ePrep’s software, students can take ownership of their test prep experience like never before,” adds Schmidt.
