The Learning Company Releases New College Entrance Test Study Software
The Learning Company has released a new product line designed to help students study for the SAT, ACT & PSAT college entrance exams. Called Inside the SAT, ACT, & PSAT 2000, the products come in both a Standard and Deluxe version. According to The Learning Company:

The Learning Company, a leading provider of consumer and educational software, today announced the release of Inside the SAT, ACT & PSAT 2000 Standard and Deluxe Editions, under The Princeton Review brand name. Both titles combine in-depth test preparation with an exciting new technology, the Personalized Study System. The Personalized Study System is a set of customized features designed to personalize the preparation process to each person's particular needs. These programs are available on Windows 95/98 and Macintosh.

Inside the SAT, ACT & PSAT 2000 Standard and Deluxe Editions are designed to prepare college bound teens for the all-important SAT, ACT or PSAT exams. The standard edition is for teens that are mainly interested in preparing for the test and are focused on getting a higher score.

Both products provide full-length practice tests, proven test-taking strategies, tips and video instruction from actual Princeton Review instructors and detailed scoring analyses and comprehensive reports. The deluxe edition also includes direct access to "Apply!" on the Princeton Review's Web site, which features online college applications.

Both titles are being released with the Personalized Study System, a dynamic learning technology that adjusts to each individuals study needs, skill level and time. Beginning with a diagnostic test, this new technology automatically adjusts the test preparation process to the users level. The software provides online test tips and tools, customized printable worksheets and printable activities to complete offline. Users are also able to monitor their progress in every subject and skill.

Inside the SAT, ACT & PSAT 2000 Standard is priced at US$24.95 and Inside the SAT, ACT & PSAT 2000 Deluxe is priced at US$39.95.
