SAT Classroom Test Prep

A great SAT score can equate to thousands of dollars in scholarship money and hundreds of thousands in earning potential, so the higher your SAT score the better! You will take an official retired SAT test the first day of class to identify the subject areas on which the instructor should focus to increase your test score. Based on your pre-test results you will use the Cambridge curriculum to reinforce skills, learn test mechanics and practice strategies to ace the test. You will take another official retired SAT test again on the last day of the course to determine your overall improvement. Class space is limited so register early. Textbook fee will be collected at registration and textbooks will be distributed at first class meeting.
