Preparation for these tests includes a review of English grammar, math skills from Pre-algebra through Trigonometry, reading comprehension strategies, and critical analysis skills. All sections are covered in great detail so that students are later successful on all sections of these exams. Most selective colleges and the entire University of California system require students to take either the SAT or ACT and two SAT Subject Tests. We offer courses for SAT Subject Tests: Writing Test, Literature, Math Level I, IC and II, Biology, Spanish, French, etc.
A passing score on these tests is legally equivalent to a high school diploma. The course provides an extensive review of all parts of this examination. Concepts covered include: reading and vocabulary skills, arithmetic problems including word problems with graph interpretation and writing well organized essays.
The CBEST is typically required for entrance into a credential program. The MSAT is necessary for multiple subject credential certification. Along with a review of reading and writing strategies, these courses provide an excellent review of arithmetic, simple algebra and plane geometry. Since these tests require the use of some basic skills that may not have been used in many years - thorough preparation is a must.
Most top private schools require these entrance tests in their application process for admission. Public schools use one or more of these tests for tracking and evaluation purposes. Our courses cover vocabulary, reading comprehension, and mathematics. Emphasis is also placed on grammar, spelling, capitalization, punctuation knowledge, and the ability to understand many verbal and visual relationships. Techniques necessary in organizing and writing essays are thoroughly examined. Plenty of practice with actual exams makes these courses a must for anyone interested in doing well on standardized tests.
