Prep Expert is the admissions test prep company that you’ve probably heard of because of Shark Tank. The founder, Shaan Patel, was able to study his way into a perfect SAT score, a success achieved by only 0.02% of test takers. He has since completed an MBA at Yale and an MD from USC. Initially teaching every course himself, Dr. Patel can now only be your instructor if you take the self-paced, pre-recorded SAT and ACT courses.
