*** From the Makers of Varsity Learning Tools - Best Education App - 2016 Appy Awards ***
Many students view the PSAT as a trial run for the SAT – but it is so much more than that. While the PSAT can identify those areas that require improvement, it can also act as a prerequisite for certain scholarships and put you on your dream school’s radar. The free Varsity Tutors PSAT Prep app for iPhone and iPad serves the dual purposes of readying students to some degree for both the PSAT and its successor.
Like the PSAT, the PSAT Prep app drills users on the Reading, Writing and Language, and Math sections. Users can hone their knowledge of a specific subject area, like Reading, or go more in-depth to specific concepts, like analyzing fiction, describing word choice, and recognizing patterns in literature. Simulate test day by taking multiple practice and diagnostic exams, allowing you to identify the concepts and subjects that you are weak in.
The PSAT Prep app uses professionally created content to challenge students, while also offering explanations for questions that were missed. The app also comes with ready-made flashcards for all three test sections, to better assess your PSAT readiness on the go.
It can be difficult to get daily PSAT studying in as a busy student, so the PSAT Prep app for iPhone and iPad prompts users with a daily practice question, ensuring you get a knowledge boost even on break days.
Download the Varsity Tutors PSAT Prep app for iPhone and iPad today to strengthen your groundwork of knowledge for test day.

Not sure how useful this is unless...
Unless you are looking to find a tutor in your area, I'm not sure how useful this app is. I have played around with it for 20 minutes and it either doesn't load the correct answer to the question I answered (seemed to freeze), or each category I pressed led to a list of tutors in my area (is this app just an ad for tutors?) and finally, when I tried to get out of creating a flashcard, the app just looped so I couldn't get out of that mode. Either I wasn't using this correctly, or it's really unintuitive, or otherwise, it's just an app to find a local tutor. Kind of false advertising, but also, as a free app, just a bit of waste of time, not money.
the practice tests are great for seeing what you are getting wrong and need to practice but the rest of the app is useless and confusing. if you want to “ learn by concept” you have to dig through every topic in every subject and the focus is narrow.
I'm currently a sophomore but next year I will be taking the SATS and wanted a great app to study and this is just that!It had plenty of practice test and quizzes and it even connects you to great tutors as well!I was worried but after discovering this app I feel a lot better about how I will do😊.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
