You'll be given assignments, practice tests and a non-graded final exam to help you measure your skills. Classes start the third Wednesday of each month and cost $100 per part/course.

SAT/ACT Preparation: 
Parts One and Two
In addition to preparing you for specific question types, these courses give you pointers on time management, anxiety relief, scoring and general standardized test-taking.

Part one tackles the verbal questions of the ACT and SAT. The ACT's Reading Test and English Test assess your knowledge of English usage, grammar and reading comprehension.
