McKinney, Texas — McKinney ISD continues to offer its high school students a comparatively low-cost opportunity to prepare for college entrance exams with a ZAPS® PSAT/SAT one-day test preparation seminar on October 22, 2022.

Presented by Doorway to College Foundation (D2CF), the exclusive provider of ZAPS Focused Test Prep, the seminar offers professional test preparation for $75—a cost that has been discounted by ZAPS and is substantially lower than some of the other test prep offerings available on the market.

According to ZAPS, in an independent study involving 170 students who took the SAT before and after attending a ZAPS SAT seminar, students with subject scores of 500 and above before attending the ZAPS seminar saw an average increase of 29.2 points on their Reading and Writing scores and 21.9 points on their Math scores. Students with subject scores below 500 before the ZAPS seminar saw an increase of 49.4 points in Reading and Writing and 31.5 points in Math.
