SAT/ACT Prep Course - Part 2

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.

SAT/ACT Preparation Part 2 will give you all the information you need to do well on the math questions of the ACT and the new SAT. The ACT math tests your knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and basic statistics. This course provides you with a complete math review of all these subjects. We'll also show you how to use your time wisely so that you finish as many math questions as possible in the 60 minutes the ACT gives you for the math test. In addition to reviewing arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and basic statistics, we'll cover functions and other algebra II subjects now tested on the SAT.

In addition to preparing you for specific question types on both exams, this course will give you pointers on time management, anxiety relief, scoring, and general standardized test-taking. This course, along with Part 1, 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.

SAT/ACT Prep Course - Part 2 Outline
Expand All
Week 1

In our first lesson, we'll go over all the things you need to know about the general makeup of both the ACT and SAT so you'll know exactly what you're getting into come test day. You'll learn how to relax when you start feeling panicky, how to eliminate the wrong answers that the tests try to entice you into choosing, how to guess when you aren't sure of the right answer, and how much time to spend on each question. Then, spend some time reviewing the essentials of arithmetic.

Week 2

In addition to a review of standard algebra, in this lesson, we'll also review some algebra II topics. We'll go over variables, factoring, functions, and a host of other challenging topics so that you'll know exactly what you need to answer the many algebra-related questions on both tests. Then, we'll go over the properties of angles, triangles, squares, circles, and other shapes so that you can answer questions that ask for pesky measurements. We'll also cover coordinate geometry and throw in some valuable information about graphing functions so you'll be ready for all sorts of geometry when you sit for the ACT and SAT.

Week 3

In this lesson, we'll cover many of the key trigonometry topics, including sine, cosine, and tangent and the trigonometric reciprocals. We'll also review how to use trigonometry to solve right triangles and even oblique ones. Then, review everything you need to know about tendency, frequency, and probability to ace the ACT and SAT.

Week 4

Go through 30 practice questions to show you exactly how to approach and master the ACT arithmetic and algebra questions. Then, you’ll complete 30 more practice questions, and see just how to approach and correctly answer the geometry, trigonometry, and algebra II questions on the ACT.

Week 5

Go over exactly what you should expect on the SAT math, and then you'll get some practice by examining 13 practice SAT math questions. Then, focus on the most common type of SAT math question you'll see—the multiple-choice question. With a thorough examination of some example SAT math questions, you'll find out how to work through all kinds of multiple-choice math.

Week 6

Get the scoop on how to answer math questions that don't give you answer choices to choose from, and you'll find out how to avoid making errors when you fill in the answer on the answer sheet. Finally, we'll make sure you understand what you need to know for each math subject on the tests, review what you should focus on as you prepare, and show you how to best spend your study time as you prepare to strut your stuff on test day.

When can I get started?

A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!

How does it work?

Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.

How long do I have to complete each lesson?

Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.

What if I need an extension?

The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
