Khan Academy has teamed up with the College Board (creators of the SAT) to create personalized SAT practice for anyone, anywhere.
When I had first seen the College Board and Khan Academy announcement that they were forming a new partnership, I liked that the free test preparation is being offered in conjunction with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. I think that is also important in giving access to the resources for students who might need more support or access to the Internet or computers.

At the end of the school year in the U.S., students who are taking accelerated advanced placement courses (ones designed to be similar in content to general education courses in colleges) take the Advanced Placement (AP) exams. These exams are important factors for admissions to most elite universities. Those terms are registered trademarks of the College Board, but high schools create their own AP classes. There has long been a market for test prep materials and courses for those exams, and teachers who do tutoring outside the classroom often focus on those courses.
