SAT/ACT Prep Course - Part 2

Description

Making the decision to attend college is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and your performance on college entrance exams is instrumental in determining your college choice. Universities and colleges throughout the U.S. require applicants to take the SAT or ACT as part of their evaluation package. This course will prepare you for both tests.

SAT/ACT Preparation Part 2 will give you all the information you need to do well on the math questions of the ACT and the new SAT. The ACT math tests your knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and basic statistics. This course provides you with a complete math review of all these subjects. You'll also learn how to use your time wisely so that you finish as many math questions as possible in the 60 minutes the ACT gives you for the math test. In addition to reviewing arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and basic statistics, you'll also cover functions and other algebra II subjects now tested on the SAT.

In addition to preparing you for specific question types on both exams, this course will give you pointers in time management, anxiety relief, scoring, and general standardized test-taking. This course, along with Part 1, will prepare you to excel in all sections of the undergraduate college entrance exams and provide you with the means to achieve your best potential score.
