PrepHub - Collaborative Test Preparation

PrepHub is a new SAT, LSAT, and GMAT preparation resource. PrepHub is built on the concepts of collaboration and user generated content. In their words, "think of PrepHub as the YouTube for test prep." Users can add practice questions and solutions, comment on test items, and track their own progress.

Applications for Education
As more public schools push to have all high school students take the SAT, there is going to be an increased need for good, free test preparation resources. PrepHub may be a good resource for students to use as they prepare for the SAT. A good learning exercise may be to have students write their own test prep questions. (Teachers may want to screen the questions before students submit them). The progress tracker on PrepHub shows students the areas and types of questions that they are doing well on and those that they need to improve on.
