about only a test LLC

only a test LLC prepares students in the St. Louis area for several admissions tests. Since 2006, we have helped hundreds of students increase access to colleges, eligibility for scholarship money, or both through higher scores on the ACT, PSAT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, GMAT, GRE, LSAT, ISEE, and SSAT.

Our mission is to teach individual students and small groups to master concepts and strategies essential for maximum performance—in short, to beat the test senseless.
