Students and teachers collectively track progress over time before walking into test day.

Set a Personal Pace & Schedule

Because the program is adaptive and virtual, students can work through at their own pace in the classroom or in a distance learning setting.

Diverse Materials

Students can tap into full length practice tests, engaging learning videos, and tons of drills.

"Shmoop made me realize what I knew and what I needed to work on, and it helped me work on them with the little quizzes. I honestly don't know what I would have done if I didn't use Shmoop."

Humor, storytelling and pop-culture references throughout course material and study guides has shown to keep students having fun (and laughing!) while they learn. In turn, this supports student engagement.
