On October 10th students in nine regions had the chance to compete for a $1,000 prize, totaling $44,000 by obtaining the highest score on one of four practice tests. The tests included the SAT, new SAT, PSAT, or ACT; challenges were held in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Orange County and San Francisco. Santa Monica High School, Wayne Hills High School and Freemont High School were awarded $2,000 each for having the most student representatives attend the Challenge. Parents also had a win, while students were testing, parents had the opportunity to attend workshops on important academic topics such as the new SAT, college admissions, and financial planning.

The Test Prep Challenge was a great success, according to David Kim, C2 CEO "We had over 1,400 registrants and each of those students had the opportunity, by taking a practice test, to better understand the testing process while accurately measuring performance before taking the real test. Our success is also gauged on having the opportunity to help the communities we are a part of. Events like the Test Prep Challenge, Free Homework Help and the College Roadmap are under the pillar of the C2 Community Giveback program, designed to allow C2 to be a good and proactive community member."  The company also offers complimentary online webinars and a blog with many helpful articles.
