Beginning August 21st, 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 upcoming 2012-2013 school year. 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.
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.
New this year, in addition to classroom-taught sessions, Penn State Wilkes-Barre will be offering an online self-directed SAT Preparation course. 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.
