The SAT is designed to align with what students learn throughout their high school curricula. Much emphasis is placed on the fundamental knowledge of math and English instead of tricky questions. Because of this, many test-prep companies that focus on only teaching tricks fail to help students preparing for the SAT. ThinkTank Learning has developed an entirely new and unique curriculum to help students conquer the SAT. ThinkTank engages their students in tackling a variety of problems through simulated, diagnostic exams. Not only do the professionally-trained instructors help students in correcting their mistakes, they also teach them the strategies and fundamental skills required to tackle problems in the future.

The SAT practice course offers students the chance to take a full-length practice test every two weeks. After each test, students will be assigned to a class where students have the same score range in order to accommodate the pace of their learning progress. Students will spend 1.5 hours per subject reviewing their tests, analyzing results, and learning both strategies and fundamental skills. Each SAT course entails 2 practice tests and four 4.5-hour classes in a span of 4 weeks. Students can renew the course enrollment and continue to improve until they reach their maximum score.
