YORK, Pa. — There is still time to register for the SAT strategy course beginning Jan. 30 through Penn State York. Being prepared is the key to successfully taking the SAT, and Penn State York is committed to providing an opportunity for students to review key concepts for the SAT exam. This course is designed for students taking the SAT for the first time or for those who want to try and increase their scores.

Participants will be able to ask questions and receive immediate answers, interact with other students, and prepare with an experienced, live instructor. Spring SAT strategy sessions via Zoom are set for Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., Jan. 30 through Feb. 27. There is no class on Feb. 13.

SAT scores are required for admission to most colleges and universities; there is a good deal that rides on student’s scores, namely admission to top schools and scholarships. SAT exam dates for 2021 are March 13, May 8 and June 5.

Cost for the course is $250. Students must purchase the textbook, “College Board: The Official SAT Study Guide," prior to the start of class. It is recommended that students considering this course have completed at least two years of high school algebra.
