Test Prep

High scores on SATs aren't everything, say college admissions officers. They certainly couldn't hurt, though.

$78: SAT Review Books -- five books including Boot Camp for Your Brain and Barron's SAT

$1,599: The Princeton Review SAT Small Group Instruction Course, 24 hours' classroom instruction

$499: Kaplan Test Prep ACT Review Course (because the SAT scores weren't up to snuff)

$55: ACT Study Guides, includes ACT Online Prep and The Real ACT Prep Guide with CD

$1,149: Advanced Placement Tutors for Physics and Calculus. Millennium Tutors, 16-hour package

Tally: $27,318
