PSAT Prep

What: The Preliminary-SAT (PSAT) is essentially the same test as the SAT, without the essay component. Students who take the PSAT exam generally do so for one of two reasons: To compete for the prestigious National Merit Scholarship or to gain realistic practice for the SAT college admissions test. This test-preparation seminar provides students with highly effective tips and strategies to prepare them for success on the PSAT (as well as the SAT), regardless of their motivation for taking the exam. Students who take this seminar and practice the tips and strategies at home typically raise their PSAT scores by 5 to 15 points and their SAT scores by 50 to 150 points. Also included, students will take shortened practice tests, receive a comprehensive study guide and practice-test workouts with answer explanations, reduce their test anxiety, and gain confidence. All materials are included in the registration fee.
