The Princeton Review Adds New Dimension to Test Prep

The Second Life sessions are the company's first step into the virtual world to help students learn more about the SAT. Second LifeR is an online world where users can create a virtual likeness of themselves (avatars) and interact with users from around the world.

The Princeton Review is adding a new dimension to test prep – the virtual dimension.  This January, The Princeton Review will hold two free SAT Strategy Session Events in the virtual world of Second Life.

The Second Life sessions are the company's first step into the virtual world to help students learn more about the SAT.  Second LifeR is an online world where users can create a virtual likeness of themselves (avatars) and interact with users from around the world.

The Princeton Review, which offers private tutoring, classroom and online test prep to help students improve their college and graduate school admissions test scores, has added a number of high-tech options for test preparation, such as drills on iPods and calculators. Online courses and tutoring make it possible for students to access Princeton Review's score-raising content instantly at any time, any place.

The Princeton Review has teamed up with Ohio University to offer students virtual reality with benefits.  The avatars can travel around the Second Life world and to the SAT event tent in free virtual Princeton Review branded roadsters. The SAT sessions will take place in a special event tent,and there will be information kiosks set up around the Second Life world where avatars can accumulate free virtual collectibles, as well as information about The Princeton Review, and event dates. Learning about the SAT in a virtual world brings an educational component to the video-game-like experience.

The Second Life SAT strategy sessions are scheduled for Saturday January 19th – 4pm EST, and Thursday January 31st – 8pm EST.  Each event will include a 15-20 minute presentation, followed by a Q&A session, and will feature two Princeton Review teachers in virtual form. Important information about the SAT, including testing dates and content, sample questions and answers and general information about the SAT and the ACT, and the college admissions process will be covered

The virtual SAT strategy sessions are located on Ohio University's Second Life Virtual Campus and can be reached at www.princetonreview.com/secondlife. The campus also can be found by searching for Ohio University in Second Life. (www.secondlife.com)
