Beginning August 18th, Penn State Wilkes-Barre will begin hosting four seven-week SAT preparation course sessions for those students interested in taking the SAT exam for the 2015/2016 dates. Penn State Wilkes-Barre, in cooperation with Cambridge Educational Services, Inc., offers high school students an opportunity to raise their score on the SAT, and instructs students in proven test-taking strategies to help them realize their full potential on the test. Our instructors have over 20 years of test preparation experience, will target specific areas of need, and are fully qualified to assist students in improving their math and critical reading/writing skills, as well as in providing guidance for test-taking strategies.
For students entering their senior year of high school, this fall will be the last chance to take the current SAT. For students entering their junior year of high school, this is an opportunity to prepare for the redesigned SAT exam, changing in the Spring of 2016.
Students in this course will become familiar with the SAT Reasoning Test, critical reading, writing, math skills, advantages and disadvantages of guessing, ways to reduce the time needed to answer questions, and the scoring of the SATs. Students will also gain experience by taking an official off-record SAT test.
In addition to classroom taught sessions, Penn State Wilkes-Barre offers an online self-directed SAT Preparation. Once registered, students can prepare for any SAT test that is offered within the next five months. Tuition includes exclusive Web-based materials to help master test content. From interactive lessons, comprehensive lesson content, knowledge measuring quizzes, and timed tests, students can prepare for the test anytime/anywhere at their own convenience.
