Preparation course for the new SAT scheduled

1/4/2005 —
Penn State Wilkes-Barre will offer an updated review course for students who plan on taking the new Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) on March 12 and May 7, 2005. In addition to critical reading (formerly the verbal portion of the test) and math, the new version of the SAT will include a section on writing which will measure a student’s grammar and usage skills and requires a written essay. Students enrolled in Penn State’s review course will write a sample essay that will be sent directly to Cambridge Educational Services for scoring.

Additional topics will include the recommended test taking order, increased reading comprehension, familiarity with math grids and determining when to use a calculator, and the advantages and disadvantages of guessing.

This grade-free review course will be held on Saturday mornings, January 15 through February 26, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Center for Technology at the campus in Lehman.

Students may take one or both of the writing/critical reading and math reviews. For more information, call Penn State Wilkes-Barre Continuing Education at 675-9219.
