SAT - The Scholastic Assessment Test Review

Description

Are you ready for college? The University of Central Florida understands the significant role college entrance exams, such as the SAT, play in college admissions. Acceptance into a student's school of choice can hinge on his or her performance on the SAT.

UCF Test Prep has developed a high-quality, 20-hour comprehensive SAT review program in an affordable and convenient format. With programs in Orlando and the surrounding areas, our review program provides Central Florida high school students with an opportunity to enhance their skills and abilities to achieve higher SAT test scores.

Our five-week SAT review program is offered year round and instructed by experienced, expert instructors. This one day per week format allows students to practice their skills during the week, leading to greater opportunities for learning and interaction with our expert instructors.

Students are provided with an in-depth review of the exam's mathematics, critical reading, and writing sections and insight into strategies for succeeding on the SAT including time management skills.

UCF Test Prep offers a discount to those who are UCF Alumni, active UCF students graduating within the same academic term as the selected review course is scheduled, or current UCF Staff or Faculty. For our SAT and ACT Review Programs, the discount can be applied to children of UCF Alumni, Staff, and Faculty.

UCF Test Prep only provides test preparation review courses and does not provide registration for the actual exam. Please visit www.sat.collegeboard.org to register for the test or to find your nearest test location.

Instructors

With over 18 years of experience the UCF Test Prep staff contributes to the development and administration of the review courses for the GMAT, GRE, MCAT, PCAT, TEAS, SAT, ACT, CMA, CIA, CPA, and FTCE exams. Each course is designed to prepare students for the verbal, mathematical, science, and essay sections of each exam. The review course offers an overview structure of the test, successful techniques and strategies on the exam content, and sample tests. As part of the University Of Central Florida Division Of Continuing Education, we believe in the UCF Creed of Integrity, Scholarship, Community, Creativity, and Excellence as the core values that guide our conduct, performance, and decisions.

Awilda Delgado earned her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Mathematics at the University of Central Florida. She has also completed all of her coursework in the Ph.D. program in Curriculum and Instruction at Florida Atlantic University. Awilda served seven years as a faculty administrator at UCF before following her true passion of teaching, which she has been doing full-time over the past 13 years. In her classes, she is known to be encouraging, patient, caring, and flexible. Her classes are also very interactive, with students frequently working together to discuss problems and strategies. Awilda comes to class very prepared, but she understands that each class must mold itself to the individual needs of the students. In addition to teaching students in traditional academic settings, Awilda also believes that every student should receive the best possible preparation for succeeding on standardized test since a strong score can often open many new doors! That is why she chose to begin teaching with UCF Test Prep more than 10 years ago and is still as passionate about test prep courses today. So come to class with an "I can do this" attitude, work hard both in and out of class, and together you will reach your testing goals!

Frequently Asked Questions

The maximum class size is 25 students.
No, the textbook needs to be purchased separately. Please make sure the CD-Rom is included with the GMAT, GRE, and FTCE textbook. All other textbooks do not require a CD-Rom. All textbooks can be purchased at most national or local bookstores or online suppliers.

Students who have graduated and received a degree from UCF qualify for the alumni discount. The discount is also extended to those about to graduate from UCF within the same term as the review course and current UCF Staff and Faculty members. For ACT/SAT only, the discount can be extended to children of UCF Alumni.
We do not have statistics on the test scores because, most students take the test right after they complete the test preparation course and there is no requirement for them to report their scores to UCF Continuing Education. What we do have, from test prep students, are extremely high indications of instructional satisfaction through documented feedback from test preparation students listed on our website.
Our goal is to offer a quality service at an affordable price and ultimately assist potential undergraduate, graduate, and professional level students with enrollment into a degree program.
We do not manage any of the actual exams. Students need to go to the selected exam's website to sign up for a test date. The links below will provide students with the most up to date details on the actual exam, testing site locations, dates, and exam fee.
Students will be given practice tests, quizzes, testing strategies, and homework assignments to prepare them for the exam. We do not administer the actual exam. The test must be arranged separately with a testing facility.
We provide free practice exam links on each of our test preparation review pages. UCF Test Prep is not affiliated with these sites. These are references from the official testing organizations that administer each exam. We feel each will be beneficial in providing core concepts to students.
If you are having trouble making payment or logging in, please contact ceprograms@ucf.edu or 407-882-0260 to complete payment.
Please contact us if you know in advance that you will be missing a class or if you have already missed a class after the course has started. We will notify the instructor and will work with the student based on the conditions of the absence.

All refund requests will be required to follow the Division of Continuing Education refund policy.

The transfer policy applies only to the Test Prep review courses in the subject areas of GRE, GMAT, FTCE and ACT/SAT courses. For transfers related to MCAT/PCAT/OAT/DAT or LSAT courses contact our office at 407.882.TEST (8378) as all MCAT/PCAT/OAT/DAT and LSAT course transfers will need to be handled on a case-by-case basis. UCF Test Prep Administration will approve all transfer requests, and notify the student of the decision and any pertinent information. Instructors do not have the authority to make decisions on this policy. Notification to instructors does not constitute transfer from the class. The required UCF Test Prep Transfer Request Form must be completed and submitted for review.

Transfer Process
  1. Complete the transfer form: You, the student, must notify the Division of Continuing Education that you wish to transfer from the registered course. Download the transfer form from the UCF Test Prep website. This first step in the process is the most essential. We will consider your transfer request active on the day and time that we physically receive the signed form. Any transfer forms received outside of our regular business hours of Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM will be considered "received" on our next regular business day.
  2. Payment: There is a payment required for transferring to another course. A percentage of your registration fee is applied as a credit to the new transfer course. The credit is determined based on how much of the course is remaining, and not on how many classes that you have attended or missed.

We determine the remaining time for the course from the point in time we receive the transfer form, not from the time it is dated and signed. Only class times that meet after we receive the transfer form will count as remaining course time.

The credit is applied to the current registration fee of the course being transferred to, and any remaining balance will need to be paid by the student. There is also an additional transfer fee of $50.00 (fifty dollars) that is added to your registration fee. The $50.00 transfer fee is required to be paid regardless of how much the credit is.

Registration Fee Clarification: If you transfer to another course you will be in the same fee category as the class you are transferring from. For example, you may not transfer and switch from the regular Registration rate to the Alumni rate (unless you have graduated prior to taking the new course).

Example of How the Credit is Determined: The amount of your credit is determined by how much of the course is remaining.

  • We take the number of hours for your course (ex. 24 hour review course)
  • Then subtract the number of hours the course has met (ex. 2 class meeting at 4 hours each equals 8 hours that have met).
  • This will give us the remaining number of hours the course has NOT met (ex. 24-8 = 16 hours).
  • The remaining amount of class is be divided by the total number of hours for the course (ex. 16/24 = 66.7%). This percentage of your fee is applied to the registration fee transfer course.

Sample: Orlando was taking the 16-hour review course, but after two class meetings Orlando decided that he wants to transfer to the 24 review hour course. Orlando paid $575 for the 16-hour review course, and the 24-hour review course fee is $700. How much will the credit be and how much will he need to pay?

Orlando's class meets for 4 hours each session and there have already been 2 class meetings, so 8 hours of the course have already met, and 8 hours or 50% of the course remains. Orlando will receive a credit for 50% of his $575 registration fee that will be applied toward the $700 registration fee for the transfer course.

After the $287.50 credit is applied, Orlando is left with a $412.50 registration fee. Once the $50.00 transfer fee is applied to the remaining registration fee of $412.50, Orlando will need to pay $462.50 for transferring into the 24-hour review course.

Special Notes: Transfers for LSAT and MCAT/PCAT/OAT/DAT will be handled on a case-by-case basis, please contact our office at 407.882.TEST (8378). No portion of your registration fee can be applied to another DCE program or transferred to another person. UCF Test Prep will not refund textbook purchases, nor will we supply the textbook for the transfer course.
