 Earlier this week Ubisoft announced the release of the newest addition to its My Coach series, My SAT Coach.  Working side-by-side with the Princeton Review, Ubisoft developed the DS title as a portable training tool focused on building basic mathematics, vocabulary, and grammar skills.    


Students are able to access over 2,000 practice questions, including timed drills and two complete exams. Each section of the SATs can be broken down in order to focus on one particular subject at a time. As the student follows their progress, the game will provide study and strategy suggestions on how to enhance their skills in that particular academic area.    


In addition to general training tools, My SAT Coach provides valuable stress reduction and time management suggestions in order to prepare the student not only in knowledge but in technique as well. My SAT Coach helps players recognize common tricks put in place to confuse students throughout all sections of the test.    


For players lacking valuable study time, seven mini-games were added to allow a player to focus on one subject in particular for a short amount of time. On the other hand, for students with more time there are complete diagnostic exams using the same tools they would encounter while taking the real SAT exam.    


My SAT Coach is rated E for Everyone and is available now at the suggested retail price of $29.99.
