Nice Things Actual Teenagers (And Their Unsung Heroes Who Pay for Their Cell Phones) Have Said About Us

Visit the websites of other test prep companies—which we are not naming, because some of them have Big Scary lawyers on retainer—and you will find alleged student testimonials that look like this:

My SAT class was totally rad! With my fantastic new score, I’ll be able to get into an Ivy League college, become a cardiologist, and support my parents in their retirement. Thank you, SAT prep company!

Do you think any teenager in America actually speaks like that? (We, at THE PLAYBOOK, aren’t even sure whether teenagers even speak any more—but that’s another story.)

On our site, all of the feedback you’ll see was submitted by actual students and parents. Our testimonials are recent, authentic, and completely unedited. So, prepare yourself for oodles of exclamation points and an endearing sprinkling of emojis.

Here is a sample of what actual, living, breathing, texting teenagers have said about us:

The instructor was very good. (I don’t remember his name, but I believe it started with a J.) He kept a good pace and made it interactive and fun. I have taken SAT prep classes in the past and there is no doubt that this was the best one. The pace and level of detail he went into was tremendous. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone.

I appreciated the instructor saying good job to specific people during the Boot Camp. It made the course feel more personal. Also, although SAT prep is obviously boring, and I would rather be watching football, the instructor kept the course interesting, keeping me engaged and helping me learn throughout the entire class.

This was my first SAT prep course so I don’t have much else to compare it to, but it was a great experience and I feel a lot more prepared now. The instructor was interesting so that was nice—it made the course less boring (not that it was boring, I just don’t want to use the word interesting again because that’s repetitive). Thank you for the tips and tricks. And to whoever is reading these survey responses, I hope you have a nice day. 🙂
