The Starting Line

Courses available in your account

Hide

Your ePrep account will include access to all of your ePrep courses. In other words, your email address can support multiple ePrep courses. Each ePrep course includes everything you’ll need to maximize your test score, including printable practice tests, online score sheets, and detailed video explanations for every test question and related subject lessons.

Selecting a course to begin

Hide

When you first log in to your account, one of your ePrep courses (e.g., SAT, ACT, etc.) will be preselected and identified in the upper right of your Home Room page. You may toggle over to a different course by clicking the downward pointing arrow (to the right of the current course name) and selecting a new course from the drop-down menu. Selecting a different course will cause ePrep to load a new Home Room, Exam Room, and Study Hall, as appropriate. However, your work in the WordSmith vocabulary section is common across all of your ePrep courses. (If you have only purchased one ePrep course, the name of that course only will appear in the upper right corner of your Home Room page.)

How your course is structured

Hide

All ePrep courses feature four (4) key sections or tabs. The following is a brief overview of each tab and its purpose.

Home Room
The Home Room tab serves as the main dashboard, or command center, for each course. Within the Home Room, you can set up a study schedule, download and print tests, review assignments and recommended study lessons, view progress reports, create parent accounts, and update account settings generally.

Exam Room
The Exam Room tab hosts all online grading and video review features. From the main Exam Room grid, you can select a specific practice section for grading and video review. For your convenience, a preset timer is available for use during offline testing.

Study Hall
The Study Hall tab displays all of the remedial data collected from your completed practice tests. Your Study Hall is updated every time you complete a practice section. Study Hall lessons are designed to help you learn topics you might have missed in school and proven test-taking strategies.

WordSmith
The WordSmith tab offers an engaging vocabulary tool and includes nearly 1,500 common SSAT, SAT, and ACT words. A large and varied working vocabulary is helpful on standardized tests, in school, and in life beyond. You are encouraged to use WordSmith weekly, if not daily, throughout your ePrep subscription period. Vocabulary building is best done incrementally over time. After sorting words from an ePrep list, you can review words using online flashcards and test your knowledge by taking computer generated online quizzes.

ePrep allows you to set up a schedule for each course included in your subscription. A study schedule will help you stay on track and achieve your test-day goals. With a few mouse clicks, you can vary the start date, test date, number of practice tests, and subject areas to be included. Once your schedule has been created, ePrep will provide you with a detailed calendar of assignments. If you want, ePrep will also send you email alerts to help you manage your busy schedule and stay on track.

After logging in, select a course by clicking on the downward pointing arrow next to the current course name (in the upper right corner of your Home Room page) and pick a course from the drop-down menu – for example, ACT, PLAN, PSAT, SAT or SSAT. (If you have only purchased one ePrep course, the name of that course only will appear in the upper right corner of your Home Room page.)
  2. Once you've selected a course, click on Edit Schedule under the heading Assignments on the left side of the Home Room page
  3. Select a test date from the drop-down menu
  4. Select the number of practice test from the drop-down menu
  5. Check the subject areas you want to include in your study program (uncheck those you do not want to include)

You may edit and revise your schedule at any time simply by selecting Edit Schedule under the heading Assignments on the left side of the Home Room page.
