Students prepare for the reading, writing, and mathematics sections of the PSAT. In addition to helping students predict their future SAT scores, the PSAT is the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholar program and can only be taken once per year.
The math review covers algebraic expressions and equations, graphical representations, and statistics, as well as strategies for both the calculator and no-calculator portions of the test. The reading/writing review emphasizes grammar and mechanics, locating information, making inferences, and analyzing rhetoric.
Students complete 2 practice PSAT tests under timed conditions and become familiar with SAT question formats, test scoring, and time-management strategies. Each student receives an evaluation based on their practice test scores that details areas for improvement and provides suggestions for further preparation.
Course materials include official practice tests published by the maker of the exam and other commercial test prep books.
