We have authored a new, customizable Powerpoint presentation to show to faculty and staff who are unfamiliar with USATestprep. Simply download, modify, and enjoy!
We are delighted to announce the launch of a new version of our Head of the Class game. It has the same game mechanics, but the artwork is fantastic and incorporates our SGKS characters. We hope you like the new addition.

Due to our server upgrade over the past weekend, the site is experiencing some technical difficulties. Specifically we are noticing a problem with our diagnostic tests. Â
We are currently working around the clock to correct this. Â Our biggest challenge is, it is not happening on all networks. Â There appears to be a conflict with our code and some school networks.
Again, we offer our sincere apologies if your school is experiencing problems.
Beginning Tuesday, April 22nd, we experienced an unprecedented server load. Due to the upcoming End of Course testing across many states, we have had more students using USATestprep to help them review this week than ever before. As a result, some of you may have experienced a slow or problematic browsing experience between the peak hours of 10:00 A.M. and Noon, EST.
To alleviate this problem, we have placed an emergency server upgrade order and plan to have it installed this weekend. We apologize for any inconvenience or unproductive class time for you or your students. Thank you for continuing to use USATestprep, and we will continue to do our best to make our site the best possible review product available.
Do not hesitate to call or email if you have any questions or concerns.
