PSAT Preparation

The Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is a multiple-choice standardized test administered by the College Board and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. The PSAT is a shortened version of the actual SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test).

Courses are offered in different sites at specific times of the year (see Up Coming Courses). However, we specialize in designing courses for smaller groups of students as requested by parents or community groups. The dates, times and content of these courses are determined by the needs of the individuals or group. These courses can be taught anywhere, provided that arrangements are made in advance. Certain times of the year require more advanced notice to prepare the course.

General Course Objectives:

During this course students are given an opportunity to:

  • examine the content of the P.S.A.T. test
  • - knowledge and curricular expectations
  • - kinds of questions asked
  • - how it is organized
  • - terms and concepts used
  • - how it is timed and scored
  • develop strategies of test taking that apply only to the PSAT test
  • write a practice test
  • determine individual need areas which will require greater focus when preparing for the test
  • design personal study schedules and time management techniques
  • work on specific areas of concerns under the guidance of specialized PSAT teachers
