YORK, Pa. — Designed to help high school students prepare to take the SAT, Penn State York’s SAT preparation course offers a variety of test-taking strategies. The course will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on four consecutive Saturdays from Jan. 28 to Feb. 18 in Room 112 of the Edward M. Elias Science Building on the York campus.

This course has been updated to review math and English concepts, test timing, and format. It has successfully helped students prepare for the exam by offering tips to improve effectiveness and efficiency when taking the test. By using real SAT exam questions, participants can learn how to do an appropriate analysis of the types of questions they will encounter on the actual test.

The newly redesigned SAT test covers reading, writing and math skills. Preparing with live instructors allows students to ask questions, receive immediate answers, and interact with other students. The instructors 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.

Cost for each four-session course is $210 and includes a copy of “The College Board SAT Study Guide.” Students should bring a calculator for use in the math review portion of the course.
