SCAM ALERT: Beware of Test Prep Scams

Scam

Before you invest hundreds or thousands of dollars for these preparation programs, beware of the following red flags:

  • Attempts to sell you prep services for many tests at once, with payment up front or on credit.  
  • Credit arrangements with a company other than the one selling you the prep service.
  • Direct sales contact at your home.
  • Promises that you can get college credit without enrolling in college.
  • Book lists that include dictionaries or encyclopedias.

Before you buy any test prep service, contact your Education Service Officer or Navy College Education Specialist. Numerous free and low-cost test preparation alternatives are available either at the education center, installation library or through local used college textbook stores.
