Preparing for the SAT
About This Course
If you are college bound, you will probably be required to take the SAT. Almost all undergraduate colleges and universities require that prospective students take either the ACT or the SAT and most students take both. Taking this course first will prepare you for all question types found on the SAT using test-taking techniques taught to thousands of college bound students around the world. We will analyze each of the test question areas and give special consideration given to math and verbal refreshers and techniques aimed at relieving test-taking anxiety. You will practice on actual SAT tests from previous years, and we fully explain and interpret the correct and incorrect answers in an online format.
- Topics include command of evidence, words in context, information and ideas, rhetoric and synthesis questions for the reading section, expression of ideas, grammar and Standard English conventions for the writing section, essay writing for the optional essay, and basic and advanced math concepts (including fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios, and proportions) and algebraic, geometric, and trigonometric concepts for the math sections.
