About Us

Welcome to the most comprehensive and heavily traveled education resource on the Internet.

Our innovative, web-based products and online practice tests for the GRE, GMAT, SAT, ACT Assessment, ASVAB, and TOEFL, provide consumers with the depth and breadth of information they need to make informed decisions about their education or career. Our financial aid database of nearly $5 billion worth of scholarships, grants, and prizes is fully searchable on the Web and available in printed guides. The range of test preparation offered by Peterson’s has recently expanded into civil service, licensing, certification, and military preparation with the acquisition of ARCO.

In addition to our core products for college search and selection, test preparation, and financial aid, Petersons offers online services for essay editing and instruction as well as resume writing. A team of more than 250 editors at EssayEdge assist college, graduate, and professional school applicants with their admission essays and personal statements. Resume Edge provides resume writing services, resume editing, sample resumes, and instruction from Certified Professional Resume Writers (CPRWs).
