The average cost to attend college is about $80,000, or $20,000 per year.  It's a major expense that many families today cannot afford. But, there's a secret to getting college for free.  By doing exceptionally well on the SAT & Preliminary SAT (PSAT) exams, students can earn huge scholarships, including a full-ride. 

College Prep Genius is a preparatory curriculum that helps students to prepare and do well on the SAT and PSAT exams.  Founded 12 years ago by homeschooling mother, Jean Burk, the company has helped thousands of high school students, including Burk's own two children, get scholarships.  In preparing her son and daughter for the PSAT and SAT exams, Burk decoded the tests.

"We found that the College Board uses the same recurring patterns, testing the same basic principles," said Burk.  "It became clear that the test was based on logic and not on IQ.  It's not about how smart you are."  

The College Prep Genius curriculum teaches students the recurring patterns on the test, and the shortcuts and strategies to find the answers fast. Many students have raised their SAT scores by 600 points. The program consists of the College Prep Genius textbook, workbook, and DVD set, along with free downloadable homework that helps reinforce the strategies.

The three-minute Forbes Living TV segment explores the innovative SAT & PSAT preparatory curriculum developed by College Prep Genius, and highlights some the valuable strategies the program teaches students. 

"It's such an honor to be featured with Forbes Riley on the show," said Burk.  "Forbes is an incredible and inspiring personality and being a mother of twins and an advocate of education, she can appreciate proven strategies that help students further their education."
