Scouts can score free SAT and ACT test prep software

Another school year, another batch of high school students worrying about standardized tests.

But thanks to an alliance between the BSA and eKnowledge, some of a parent’s financial worry about getting ready for those tests is gone.

That’s because the test prep company eKnowledge in 2010 announced that its SAT and ACT PowerPrep software — each worth $200 — will be available free to members of the Boy Scouts of America. The donations are supported in part by National Football League and Major League Baseball players.

There are separate versions for the SAT and the ACT, and you can order one or both at no cost. Customers must still pay shipping and handling fees, which total less than $14 for each version of the software that you order.

According to a BSA release about the partnership, the software “includes more than 20 hours of video instruction, 3,000 files of supplemental test prep material, thousands of interactive diagnostic tools, sample questions, practice tests, and graphic teaching illustrations.” Plus, it’s compatible with PCs and Macs.

How to claim your free software
