SAT Prep's Full Profile
The SAT is a timed standardized test, taken by most students in their junior or senior year of high school, often required for college admission. In the increasingly competitive college admission process, students today are looking for any and all ways to improve their candidacy. One element of your college application that can definitely be improved on to help your chances of admission is your SAT score.The test is made up of 10 sections, drawn from three subjects: reading, mathematics, and writing. All of these subjects review topics you have already learned in school: critical reading skills, arithmetic, algebra, geometry, grammar, and essay writing. You already have basic knowledge on these subjects. However, you can gain an extra edge and improve your score by reviewing the specific material that will be covered on the test and by becoming familiar with the rules and strategies specific to correctly answering SAT questions.Doing well on the test provides important information about you as a student to the admissions office. In a way, the SAT is testing not only your general preparation for college based on your mastery of basic secondary school subjects, but also your ability to prepare for a specific upcoming test (in this case, the SAT). The study skills you may have learned previously in school and which will serve you well in preparing for the SAT will most likely become the most important element in your ability to succeed in college.First, this course will cover the basic knowledge needed in each subject to do well on the SAT, as well as rules and strategies for answering SAT questions. The course will include a few practice questions within each section to allow you to apply the covered concepts immediately. Toward the end of the course, you will practice many more sample questions for each subject, as well as you will complete practice tests. Remember that the more you practice and the more you return to review the subjects and topics that give you trouble, the more you will master and the higher your score will be!
