Making the decision to attend college is probably one of the most important decisions you'll ever make, and your performance on college entrance exams is instrumental in determining your college choice. Universities and colleges throughout the U.S. require applicants to take the SAT or ACT as part of their evaluation package. This course will prepare you for both tests.
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'll be tested on in the ACT. You'll also learn how to maximize your time on reading comprehension passages and the passages in the science test.
Beginning in 2005, the ACT began offering an optional essay test. If you choose to take the essay test, our course will show you how to do your best writing in the short period of time you'll be given.
In 2005, the SAT verbal questions also changed. The lessons in this course are designed to prepare you for those changes. The new verbal sections are called Writing and Critical Reading. The Critical Reading section consists of sentence completions and reading comprehension of both long and short passages. You'll learn how to answer both types of questions in the most time-efficient manner. The SAT also contains a new Writing section, which includes a student-written essay and multiple-choice questions about grammar and English usage. This course will prepare you to write the type of essays that grading officials are looking for, and will provide you with a grammar and usage review that's specific to the rules you'll be tested on in the new SAT.
In addition to preparing you for specific question types on both exams, this course will give you pointers in time management, anxiety relief, scoring, and general standardized test-taking. Weekly assignments will encourage you to work with your fellow classmates and your instructor to maximize your performance on all aspects of the verbal questions of the ACT and SAT.
This course and its follow-up will prepare you to excel in all sections of the undergraduate college entrance exams and provide you with the means to achieve your best potential score!

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those
with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional
benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for
greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the
education warrants the overall expense in the long run.
College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings
The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data
biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a
qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s,
education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders
taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do.
While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades,
those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in
the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
