• Vocabulary questions now based on usage and meaning in context
• Evidence-based reading and writing
• Essay optional
• Change in the duration of the test [ Now 3 hours (plus 50 minutes for the optional Essay) ]
• Changes in the scoring system ( Scale now ranges from 400 to 1600)

Program Highlights:

Our Test Prep Course provides intensive, in-depth coaching on all concepts and approaches to SAT questions. It includes a Scorecard Analysis, and gives feedback after every test to assess and identify areas which need to be addressed.

Full length Tests:

Our course gives students the true challenge and environment of the SAT experience. We begin with an initial Diagnostic Test, followed by an in-depth review. This in turn is followed by a customized tutoring plan, based on the strengths and weaknesses of each student. Then, we move on to full-length supervised Practice Tests, and independent full-length Practice Exams given as Home Assignments during the duration of the program. We use questions from the official SAT Guide from the College Board, the test maker, as well as complementary questions from other testing experts.
