# MOBILE GAMES
Seemingly simple and fun, NerdCoach's mobile games will drill you in the cognitive skills essential for mastering standardized tests.
# STUDY ON THE GO
Review books are heavy and official questions on your phone are useless unless you have scratch paper. We've designed the games in NerdCoach so that you can get quality studying done without any books or scratch paper. All you need is your iPhone or iPad and your attention
# TARGET AND DRILL KEY SKILLS
You can improve your jump shot by playing in basketball games, but isn't it more effective to practice jump-shots on their own? Similarly, you can eventually develop foundational test skills by practicing official questions, but you can achieve score improvement more quickly and effectively by targeting and drilling foundational skills in isolation. The games in NerdCoach are designed to drill users on essential, yet commonly overlooked standardized test skills. In our experience tutoring students, honing these skills leads to rapid score improvement.
# SUPPLEMENT YOUR CLASS
You invested a lot of money in prep courses, but do you feel like you’re making the progress you need? Prep courses are useful, but they don't teach everything you need to score well. NerdCoach drills you in essential skills in a way that your class won't. You can't afford to rely on your class only – there's too much at stake!
# MAKE EVERY MINUTE COUNT
NerdCoach games are potent 1-minute study sessions. So whether it's three minutes in line at your favorite coffee shop, five minutes between class, or fifteen minutes as you wait for your friends to finish getting ready, NerdCoach games enable you to sharpen your test skills anywhere, anytime.
# HAVE FUN!
The games included in NerdCoach are designed like video games. In fact, they're fun enough that even people not studying find them enjoyable! You've got to study for the test; you might as well do it in a way that's both fun and effective.
Ratings and Reviews
Don’t waste your money and time
This app is not useful for nothing! I used this app and it offers very little for a student to practice this. This app was made to simply make profit and not for the help of the child. I learned nothing new from doing the exercises in this app. This app is very useless and not worth your money. Take it from me, a 13 year old who toke the HSPT today. Please parents, if you want your child to do good on the HSPT, then enroll him/her in a tutor or buy a book for $10 and study from that.
It's not bad I learned about this app from an HSPT prep book I got at a workshop, but I wish the math section had more need to think. More problem solving in other words. Perhaps even some practice quizzes on things that are thought to be on the test like percentages? I feel that if there was more content that involved harder thinking I would enjoy this app more.
Math section is horribly lacking. I could easily think of multiple new ideas for math. Long division, long multination, percentages, percentages, finding area and perimeter of triangles, rectangles, and circles, and converting decimals and factions to each other are a few examples. This has serious potential but a bad math section stops it from being worth the money. At its current state it is worth 2$ at most.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
