Beginning January 18th, Penn State Wilkes-Barre will begin hosting two seven-week SAT preparation programs for those students interested in taking the SAT exam for the 2014 dates. Penn State Wilkes-Barre, in cooperation with Cambridge Educational Services, Inc., offers high-school students an opportunity to raise their score on the SAT and instructs students in proven test-taking strategies to help them realize their full potential on the test. Our instructors have over 20 years of test-preparation experience, will target specific areas of need, and are fully qualified to assist students in improving their math and critical reading/writing skills, as well as in providing guidance for test-taking strategies.

Students in this course will become familiar with the SAT Reasoning Test; critical reading, writing, and math skills; advantages and disadvantages of guessing; ways to reduce the time needed to answer questions; and the scoring of the SATs. Students will also gain experience by taking an official off-the-record SAT test.
