    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.

    Both the ACT and the SAT contain verbal and math question types. SAT/ACT Preparation Part I will give you all the information you need to do well on the verbal questions of the ACT and the new SAT. The ACT verbal sections are called the Reading Test, the English Test, and the Science Test. The Reading Test and the English Test assess your knowledge of English usage, grammar, and reading comprehension.

    In 2005, the ACT began offering an optional essay test. If you choose to take the essay test, this course will show you how to do your best writing in a short period of time you will be given. Beginning in March 2016, the SAT verbal questions also changed. The lessons in this course will prepare you for those changes. The new verbal sections are called Writing and Language and Reading. The Reading section consists of Information & Ideas, Rhetoric, and Synthesis questions based on reading passages and quantitative information.

    The SAT also contains a Writing and Language section, which includes multiple-choice questions about rhetoric, grammar, and English usage. The essay on the SAT is now optional and administered in its own section. This course will prepare you to write the type of essays that grading officials are looking for and will provide you with grammar and usage.

    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.
