Discover Learning Center has built a top-notch TJ prep. team for our summer semester. Our science teachers designed our curriculum and mock tests from the ground up, tailored specifically for the latest revision of the TJ admissions test. On the English side, last year's students raved that our reading/writing teachers helped them tremendously. Similarly, our math teacher is very familiar with the Quant Q test set. Thus, the Discover Learning Center team is the best resource in Northern Virginia for preparing students to receive the Fall 2018 TJ admissions test.

Below is our student feedback following the 2017 revision of the TJ test:
Question--Are the questions in the test harder, or same level or easier than what we taught in the TJ prep. Class? 
Answer--The TJ test was actually easier than what we taught in the TJ prep. There were only a few questions that needed outside knowledge.
Question--Are the questions in the test harder__, or same level__ or easier __ than in our 3 mock tests? Please provide detailed examples
Answer--The T.J test was easier than our 3 mock tests. The science section question was the same level as what I learned in TJ prep. There were a lot of questions where the things we learned class was related to the test questions. One example was with a conflicting viewpoints problem. Using the methods, we were given in class, it was easier to analyze the situation and draw conclusions.
