Summer Test Preparation Programs
The SAT 1 has changed significantly in 2016. This means that the current freshmen high school students will have to take the changed SAT. The new SAT is geared towards a more “evidence-based” reading, writing, and mathematics questions. The new SAT is expected to focus more on critical thinking and deciphering key pieces of information from a graphs or datasets or passages. The details about the test can be found at www.collegeboard.org.
Think Prep has redesigned summer SAT program based on the changes of new SAT. The redesigned 1-week intensive SAT program focuses a few important topics. For students who are interested in preparing for the new SAT, we will focus loosely on the ACT writing and English sections to start.
