Breaks down SAT Math problems into basic categories and teaches students key strategies for each, including numeric approximation, basksolving, and strategic guessing. Covers both the "No Calculator" and "Calculator" sections of the Redesigned SAT Math Test.
Tackles the SAT Essay, which requires textual analysis and critical reasoning based on evidence from a given text, boosting each student's ability to craft a top-scoring essay that contains all the essential components. Also boosts students' ability to write clean, powerful sentences, thereby gaining command of the written word. In addition, students look "behind the scenes" at what really matters to essay test-graders, further enhancing their confidence and competitive edge on the SAT Essay.
Real Conditions Practice SAT
Two weeks before the real SAT, students will take a Real Conditions Practice SAT. This "dress rehearsal" uses authentic SAT testing materials from the College Board and replicates the real testing environment as closely as possible, including time constraints. Using our online videos, students are then able to diagnose and master their final "sticking points" before the real SAT.
