DESCRIPTION: The best way for students to score well on the SAT is to invest their time to practice and plan for this specialized test. Students in this course can expect instruction and practice in test taking techniques and strategies for all 4 required sections of the SAT: Reading, Writing and Language, Math (with calculator), and Math (no calculator). In addition, this course will give instruction and practice to the optional Essay portion of the test. By the end of the semester, students will have greater confidence on test day due to their increased familiarity with the format and types of questions on the SAT. Students can expect to complete many practice tests through the semester in addition to writing several essays in preparation for their best SAT test performance. For optimal benefit, it is suggested that students complete math through Geometry and Algebra II for the SAT Prep Class. Students can expect 2 – 3 hours of homework to prepare for each class meeting.
