Everything students need to master the Upper, Middle, and Lower Levels of the SSAT or ISEE, the most widely used private/independent school entrance exams.
The experts at The Princeton Review offer the most complete and effective preparation for two important secondary school admissions exams, the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test) and ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination). SSAT & ISEE Prep, 2022
includes a thorough review of the fundamentals of the Math, Verbal, and Reading sections for both tests.
About the tests
: The SSAT has 2 levels (Lower: for students entering grades 6-8; Upper: 9-12), while the ISEE has 3 levels* (Lower: grades 5-6; Middle: grades 7-8; Upper: grades 9-12). Both exams test verbal skills, reading
comprehension, and math/quantitative skills, and both have an essay. While most schools require one or the other exam, students who have a choice generally opt for the ISEE if they are better-skilled at math, and the SSAT if better-skilled in language arts.
*The ISEE also has a Primary Level for grades 2-4, which is rarely taken; neither our title nor competitive titles address it.
