Online Courses

SAT/ACT Prep Series – Online
Universities and colleges throughout the U.S. require applicants to take the SAT or ACT as part of their evaluation package. This series will prepare you for both tests.

SAT/ACT Prep – Part 1
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. This course will provide you with a grammar and usage review specifically geared to the rules that you will be tested on in the ACT. You will also learn how to maximize your time on reading comprehension passages and the passages in the science test.

SAT/ACT Prep – Part 2
Both the ACT and the SAT contain verbal and math question types. SAT/ACT Preparation Part 2 will give you all the information you need to do well on the math questions of the ACT and the new SAT. The ACT math tests your knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and basic statistics. This course provides you with a complete math review of all these subjects. We’ll also show you how to use your time wisely so that you finish as many math questions as possible in the 60 minutes the ACT gives you for the math test.
