Master the HSPT®
The Power of a Practice Test
The HSPT® can only be taken one time. Don’t get caught off-guard by the format or pacing.
A practice test helps a student know exactly what to expect on test day.
As a high school student applying to college, I took the SAT twice. The second time I took the test, I scored several hundred points higher. Simply by taking the test once, I knew what to expect and was able to score higher on my second try. Regrettably, I did not do formal preparation for the SAT.
This may seem out of character for someone who does test prep, but it wasn’t until later that I realized just how important that test score was to my application. Had I scored higher, more doors would have been opened for me. But I will never forget that I improved my score simply by taking the test a second time.
With the HSPT, students have only one chance to take the test. This makes it all the more important that they know what they are getting into. Even if a student cannot commit to in-depth prep, a practice test will help him or her know exactly what to expect which will lead to a higher score on the actual exam.
