A NOTE FROM THE SCHOOL COUNSELING DEPARTMENT These agencies are private, profit-making businesses. We provide their names for your information and convenience, but do not endorse one prep course above any other. You may find other names in the yellow pages, online or perhaps by recommendation from friends. There is considerable disagreement about the benefits of prep courses, and certainly it is not a necessity to take one. The best preparation for college placement tests is a student's lifelong learning, course work and reading background. However, because we are asked every year, we do provide this list of prep courses as a "starting point" for those who are interested.
