SAT Exam Preparation   

Instructor: S. Hafner

According to the Illinois State Board of Education “All Illinois public school students enrolled in grade 11 will take the SAT with essay unless they take an alternate assessment.” Our SAT Exam Prep class is designed to help you achieve your best possible score. As college entrance exams are one of the most important tests you will take, this course is designed to help increase student exam performance by reviewing test taking tips and content on SAT’s three sections: Reading, Math, and Writing & Language. This course examines calculator usage and includes the current official prep book from the makers of the SAT with practice tests. You must register for the SAT exam separately. If you have a Smartphone, iPad or tablet, please bring it with you.
