The man whose company has helped millions of students prepare for standardized tests has died.
Stanley Kaplan passed away at his New York City home Monday at the age of 90.
Kaplan started the nation's first test prep company in his parents' Brooklyn home in 1938.
He got the idea after he was rejected from all five New York-area medical schools. His goal was to help level the playing field between working class students and those from wealthier backgrounds.
Kaplan sold his company to The Washington Post in 1984 but stayed on as President and CEO for 10 more years.
He is survived by his wife and two daughters.
