Hello Socratica Friends! Are you worried about Standardized Tests? Do you have to prepare to take the SAT? ACT? GRE? TOEFL, LSAT, MCAT? The Socratica Team has taken SO many of these tests (and we’ve done pretty well, not gonna lie). We can help.

This video covers our advice for taking standardized tests in general. But if you’d like us to make a follow-up video about a specific test, let us know in the comments below. We could do that!
