    Feel overwhelmed with SAT/ACT test prep?   I’m here to help! During this course we’ll review 50 main mathematical concepts as well as test taking tips, tricks and strategies.

    Each week students will review and practice 3-4 mathematical concepts and learn various tricks that will help them solve these problems faster. During this course students will complete hundreds or sample math questions and will complete practice tests timed and under pressure. Also, we will review common mistakes and misconceptions about SAT/ACT tests and how to avoid falling for “trick” questions.

    Math comprehension of Algebra I or above is required for this class.
