SAT Test Preparation Series for High School Students
This new free series, offered at only a handful of libraries throughout the city, is the comparable to a month-long SAT cram course worth hundreds of dollars. After taking the SAT test the first week, students get their scores and return on following Saturdays for intensive study. With the focus each week on a different subject, participants receive individualized guidance with the goal of an improved score. The final week they all take the “Do-Over” test to gauge improvement. Students encouraged to attend all sessions for maximum benefit.
Space is limited; registration is required. Contact Echo Park Library at (213) 250-7808, or email@example.com
