Khan Academy was founded in 2005 by Salman Khan. It is a non-profit organization that offers free online courses to assist students, teachers, and parents. A variety of courses are available in Math; Science and Engineering; Arts and Humanities; Computing; Economics and Finance; College and Careers; and Test Prep. Learning levels range from Preschool to College level understanding. This educational program is partnered with NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT. Courses are available in 36 different languages and the website can be viewed in English, Spanish, French, and Brazilian Portuguese.

A free SAT course is available. These tests have been created in partnership with the College Board to ensure that individuals are getting quality practice exams. The course is interactive including practice exercises, instructional videos, and personalized learning. Khan has developed a technology that helps identify where your strengths are and where there may be gaps. There is not an ACT Test Prep course available but administrators encourage students to test their knowledge within the specific areas of the ACT curriculum: Math, Science, English, Reading, and Writing.

Oh my heck, there is a place in heaven reserved for Sal Khan and his crew. They have saved more grades than anyone can count. Really simple format and I don't know why, but the fact that you can earn badges and "grow" your avatar is so motivating for some reason.

Not just for test prep for every day study and keeping up with your grade level work! The helps and videos are so clear and helpful. I encourage my kids to do it on vacation and whenever they need extra "tutoring". It is self explanatory and easy to follow. When my kids prep for a test they do extra work problems on Khan to really clarify and cement their knowledge.

Khan Academy helped me learn algebra in middle school my school payed for it and I liked it a lot if you have a question that they don't answer post it to the live board and they will answer in about 2-3 hours, only thing is some lessons they don't have all the instructors but they have instructors that go with your pace. Great thing trust me.
