If you want to succeed at a public institute of higher education in Texas, you've got to take the initiative. Actually, that applies for institutes of higher education anywhere, but in Texas, it's actually part of state legislation. Since (we assume) you're all law-abiding folks who want to start college on the right foot, prepare for the Texas Success Initiative Assessment with Shmoop's comprehensive review, targeted drills, and full-length exams.

Take the initiative. Succeed with Shmoop!

What's Inside Shmoop's Online Texas Success Initiative Prep

Shmoop is a labor of love from folks who are really, really into learning. Our test prep resources will help you prepare for exams with comprehensive, engaging, and frankly hilarious materials that bring the test to life. No, not like that. Put down those torches. 

Here, you’ll find…

In-Depth Topic Review

Need a bit of review in…oh, math, reading, writing, and essay composition? We've got you covered. Our topic review explains the difference between elementary and intermediate algebra and functions (hint: it's not just math puberty), how to arrange sentences so they actually make sense, and the basic rules for discussing controversial issues—without descending into the essay equivalent of a shouting match.

Placement and Diagnostic Exams

Much like a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma, or possibly an onion, the TSI Assessment has layers. On one hand, your previous standardized test scores or coursework may exempt you from taking certain TSI tests. On the other hand, you might be one of those lucky people who need to take all of the TSI tests and their diagnostics. Good thing we've got full-length practice exams and diagnostics for each subject.


Shmoop has buckets of TSI drill questions for targeted review. (Not literal buckets, but we do have many questions.) Once you take our diagnostic or check out our topic review, head on over to the drills to get in some extra practice. Or jump right and in and start drilling away. We're all about freedom around here.
