Reviews and Problems with futureU: The Prep Game for SAT
Showing 1-10 of 12
Ok but not great
13 October 2013
Summary: I collected all of the stars on this game rather quickly, so it feels like it has no real challenge anymore. You can always keep playing it for better scores in each category, but it just felt like kind of a dud.
Summary: Though more fun than the My SAT Coach game, I feel like FutureU compromises on the actual review. I actually question the validity of some questions and answers on this game. Many of the Reading and Writing sections' questions seemed to have incorrect answers labeled as the correct ones.
Summary: I bought the game for a fun, interactive way to study for the SATs and I suppose it is. It doesn't make me feel prepared, which is my fault for looking to a game so I wouldn't have to study. It is interactive and fun, but there aren't that many options and the questions aren't that difficult. So it was a interesting buy, I'd probably NOT buy it again, but I'm not dissatisfied.
Summary: I've taken the SAT and have used this for studying a bit. The fun factor is decent. It seems a bit kiddish with a little drawn up figure and the displays of the game, but it is helpful. There's math, reading, and writing. You do exercises similar to the SAT and extra types. My favorite was the game where you're given a word and you pick out the roots for it, such as with "many," you would choose "poly.
Summary: FutureU is a great way to study for the college entrance exam. My daughter really loves the game aspect of it, but she is also learning quite a bit at the same time. The challenge is there for her. It is not an easy "game", it is a study guide, but my daughter feels like she won when she answers the questions correctly. She brings this on the train with her to school to get in the extra studying time needed.
Summary: I bought this game for my son who will take the SAT for the first time next month. He usually doesn't like doing "prep" work but this was "fun". The only "con" was that there wasn't enough material in this game. He finished all three components in one day. Is there another level?
