Brooklyn Heights Test Prep is having a practice Mock SHSAT exam this weekend for more information and to register click here.

Many of the companies offer practice SHSAT exams, often free. Please take advantage of their mock exam sessions; it’s an experience that will relieve some nervousness, especially those unable to take professional test prep courses.

Brooklyn School of Inquiry does not endorse any SHSAT test prep program nor do we benefit from these businesses. Families should use these suggestions as a launching pad in their research for the type of tutoring that suits their children. We will update you if we learn of other opportunities.

I’m also adding this information on our school website in the 7th grade parent resources section under the middle school guidance tab. Please click here for our Middle School Guidance Tab.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

All the Best,
