ATLANTA, Sept. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- C2 Education (C2), the renowned network of subject tutoring, SAT®, ACT®, and PSAT® test prep centers is pleased to announce their New PSAT 10/11 NMSQT Strategy/Practice Guide is the number #1 release on Amazon® in its category.
The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test and National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) are the first steps students take in competing for a National Merit Scholarship. Approximately 1.5 million students enter the competition each year, going through rounds of elimination until it is pared down to about 8,000 students that are awarded the scholarship. Winning the scholarship is not only of financial benefit, it can also play a big role in acceptance to a top-tier college. Heightening student-parent anxiety is the redesign of the PSAT, which goes into effect this October.
C2 has been helping students ace the PSAT/NMSQT for years with their individualized test prep programs and curriculum. One of the company's advantages is that they write and publish their own curriculum, ensuring C2 students never use outdated materials. While in-person tutoring is recommended, C2 realized that not all students could take advantage of personalized tutoring, so they decided to make their guide available to the general public.
The guide was released on Amazon on August 3, 2015, and quickly became the #1 seller in the PSAT & National Merit Guide category. C2 Director of Curriculum Ed Kim explained why the guide was made available to the public: "Our mission is to help students achieve their dreams through the benefit of education. Making this guide available to all students, everywhere, helps fulfill that mission." The guide is offered on Amazon and in C2 Centers throughout the country.
