Free Books and Materials

Curvebreakers's SAT and ACT Strategy Books are available right now on Amazon Kindle Unlimited for Free! For families who don't have this service, the Kindle version is still only $1.99 and the paperback is only $9.99.

Most would agree that the SAT and ACT are difficult. However, it is extremely approachable and beatable — with the correct strategy and approach. Many tutors and test prep companies talk about secrets, tricks, strategies, and the like. Most of this talk is industry jargon rather than actionable improvement techniques. We have taken these concepts one step further by analyzing student performance with thousands of data points to compile not only the best possible strategies but the best possible prep plan based on data and real student results.

This course on Thinkific is set up as a repository for all the best resources made available to you for creating a free account with us on Thinkific. You are free to explore this library, access its resources and download them where we've enabled you to.

Sample list of free resources:

  • Learn the differences between the SAT & ACT.
  • Timeline for highschoolers to prepare them for the PSAT through the SAT/ACT.
  • Best calculators for these exams.
  • 6 steps to help new students through the exam process.
  • Instructional math material.
