Our Foundation: 4 Key Principles
In order for students to improve their SAT scores hundreds of points, the 2400 SAT Prep Course focuses on four key tenets that founder Shaan Patel used in his own SAT preparation to achieve a 2400. You won’t find the instruction of these principles anywhere else.
The most effective approaches to tackle each different question type on the SAT. Shaan developed 2400 Strategies by literally pulling the tactics he used in high school out of his SAT notebook. He also went back and did every SAT question type again, but this time recorded the subtle thought processes that go on in his head as he solves a question.
Unlike other test-prep methods that only tell students what to do, 2400 Strategies include the detailed, step-by-step procedure of how students should think to arrive at the correct answer. For the first time ever, students will be able to literally peek in at the mind of a perfect 2400 SAT student!
The illustrative models Shaan developed to clarify concepts. Students learn from concrete examples of SAT strategies in action. 2400 Examples often follow 2400 Strategies in order to demonstrate how to use strategies on actual SAT problems. In addition, 2400 Expert offers students Personal 2400 Examples, which include actual material Shaan used in high school.
Ever heard the cliche “practice makes perfect?” On the SAT, 2400 Practice makes perfect. Unfortunately, most students do not know how to practice to make the biggest score gains. 2400 Expert not only gives students the best questions Shaan himself used to prepare for the SAT, but also teaches the most efficient way to practice on those questions.
After students learn a particular 2400 Strategy, they will have relevant 2400 Practice questions to hone their new test-taking skills on. Students will constantly rehearse on 2400 Practice questions in class and outside of class to make the greatest score improvements.
This principle is perhaps the most overlooked in all of SAT preparation. The above three principles can improve SAT scores lots, but in order to maximize score improvement students need to identify and fix their specific weak areas. 2400 Review, the regular reexamination of 2400 Strategies, 2400 Examples, and 2400 Practice questions students have already completed, is the key to pinpointing trouble areas.
2400 Expert focuses on personal weak areas of each individual student and reviews concepts students have difficulty with. The brain (especially a scattered one like that of a high school student) can only process so much information at once and often forgets what it once learned. Unlike other SAT prep courses that only go over a concept once and never come back to it again, the 2400 SAT Prep Course takes the time to go back and thoroughly review past topics.
We only teach the SAT and the ACT. Our narrow concentration on solely the SAT and the ACT allows us to provide the highest quality test prep materials, strategies, and approaches for these specific college admissions exams. Companies that offer test preparation for too many different standardized exams often offer sub-par services by biting off more than they can chew. At 2400 Expert, we sacrifice quantity for quality. To make sure students are fully prepared for the SAT and ACT, we focus all of our attention on these two tests.
We provide all the materials necessary to fully prepare for the SAT.

Students will have the opportunity to practice the 2400 Strategies they just learned on actual SAT questions in class.
2400 Expert Instructors review in-class 2400 Practice problem sets, assigned SAT homework, and previous topics in order to pinpoint students’ problem areas as well as refresh forgotten concepts.
Students learn words from the 2400 Expert Vocabulary Book and will be given short quizzes in class to track their progress.
24 Hours of Proctored SAT Exams
Students will complete 6 full-length SAT exams (approximately 4 hours each) at the 2400 Expert Test Center. Students complete one diagnostic examination before the 2400 SAT Prep Course to give us an idea of initial test strengths and weaknesses.
Students also complete one final SAT examination after completion of 2400 SAT Prep Course to track score progress. SAT tests simulate real testing conditions so that students are comfortable on their actual test day.
40 Hours of SAT Homework
Students are assigned approximately 40 hours of SAT homework to complete outside of class. Homework will coincide with the subject matter of previous classes in order to reinforce concepts.
2400 Expert instructors assign 2400 Practice problems to complete, vocabulary words to memorize, 2400 Strategies to preview, as well as personalized homework so that each individual student can 2400 Review his or her own problematic areas.
Small Class Sizes
Fear that you won’t get enough personal attention in an SAT prep class? No need to worry, we’ll make sure you get the individual instruction you deserve. All of the 2400 SAT Prep Courses are limited to a maximum of 12 students per class. A small, intimate classroom setting allows 2400 Expert instructors to focus on individual student needs.
Back To The Basics
These days it seems like SAT prep is offered on computer software, the internet, and even your cell phone!? Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for technology and believe it can have its educational advantages. But when it comes to SAT prep, text messaging certainly isn’t going to improve your vocabulary or hone your math skills.
Therefore, the 2400 SAT Prep Course takes SAT prep back to the basics by focusing on good old pencil and paper preparation. Sure, we use some techie stuff like PowerPoints and this website, but the course will mimic how Shaan prepared for the SAT – without all the gizmos and gadgets. After all, iPads weren’t around when Shaan took the SAT, so we don’t think they’re necessary to achieve the score you desire.
