Yes, There are Courses for Improving Test Scores
Test preparation and study skills are often called “soft skills” because they apply to all different subject areas instead of just one. Because of this, many schools fail to equio students for success.
That’s a shame because students who take a test preparation/study skills class have been shown to have a 45% higher college graduation rate than those who do not. Company CEOs have also been found to attribute 75% of their professional success to “soft skills” rather than technical knowledge or industry expertise. Consequently, hiring managers are looking for employees with similar time management and organizational skills.
