Being prepared is the key to success and we have made changes to our review curriculum to cover the changes in the new SAT Exam beginning March, 2016.
The College Board has partnered with Khan Academy to provide a free SAT Review tutorial; all practice opportunities benefit students and they can work at their own pace. At Penn State Berks, we believe that the opportunity to prep with live instructors, to ask questions and receive immediate answers, and interaction with other students is a better way to prepare. Our SAT Review is truly a review of math and English concepts, in addition to students becoming familiar with the test timing and format.
Our long offered SAT REVIEW class has successfully helped students prepare for the SAT exams by showing ways to improve effectiveness, efficiency and how to do an appropriate analysis of questions by using real SAT exam questions. The tuition fee includes the textbook and handout materials.
The redesigned SAT will test you on things that research shows have strong connections to college and career readiness and success. The key areas of review include Relevant Words in Context, Command of Evidence, Essay Analyzing a Source, Focus on Math that Matters Most, Problems Grounded in Real-World Contexts, Analysis in History/Social Studies and in Science, U.S. Founding Documents and the Great Global Conversation. These key areas of review will increase reading comprehension and understanding paired passages, improve math skills - familiarity with math grid and when to use a calculator; advantages and disadvantages of guessing; ways to reduce the time needed to answer questions; and scoring of the SAT and how to compute a score on sample tests.
Course materials are practical and relevant for the redesigned SAT exam beginning March 5, 2016. Students will take a pre-test and post-test; Students are given homework assignments between classes; and sample SAT exams are given as practice tests.
