CliffsNotes PSAT/NMSQT Cram Plan uses calendars to create a specific study plan for PSAT test-takers depending on how much time they have left before they take the test. The PSAT/NMSQT is taken by over 3 million 10th graders and 11th graders every year as a pretest for the SAT and also to award prestigious college scholarships via the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC/NMSQT).
Features of this plan-to-ace-the-exam product include:
Timed, boxed calendars for preparing to take the test—two-month study calendar, one-month study calendar, and one-week study calendar
Diagnostic test that helps test-takers pinpoint strengths and weaknesses so they can focus their review on topics in which they need the most help
Subject reviews that cover everything on the exam: reading, math, and writing
Full-length model practice test with answers and explanations
The PSAT/NMSQT is administered once a year in October.
