New York City Specialized High School Admissions Test
For 2013, as Specialized High School entrance becomes more and more competitive, ibidPREP has put together more and better SHSAT programs to help your student reach her or his goals.
To make our course better and more effective, we have created ibidPREP© practice SHSAT exams which we use in addition to the few real SHSATs available. We set out to write these tests because those currently available from corporate prep mills are inferior and generally outmoded.

ISEEs - Independent School Entrance Exams
A criterion for entrance to New York City Private Schools, the ISEE is a difficult test to do very well on as it tests student to their grade level and beyond. The tests requires an elevated vocabulary and well as an ability to do quantitative comparisons. Further complicating matters, students are scored and curved relative to the very small pool of other applicants applying to New York private schools. Achieving high scores on these tests is a challenge and for those who take it, the first taste of SAT style exams.
SSATs – Secondary School Admission Test
Like the ISEEs, the SSAT is used for admission to private schools, but generally those outside the New York City area. The SSAT, like the ISEE, contains many of the characteristics of the SAT, and one of its oldest most infamous sections: the analogies. The analogies require a knack for concretely defining words and using our very precise methods to cope with those words you don’t know.
