SAT & College Prep Courses

Penn State Abington offers high school students SAT prep courses designed to help prepare them for the math and verbal portions of the SAT exam. These courses will familiarize students with test components, questions, and problems. They are designed to provide information about the current format of the SAT and to instruct students in test-taking techniques and strategies.

Students will have the opportunity to:

  • Review basic concepts.
  • Explore test-taking strategies, including how to pace yourself, how to approach multiple-choice questions and answer open-ended questions.
  • Take and review practice tests in class.
  • Understand the scoring of the SAT exam and how to compute scores on sample tests.

We offer the SAT Math Prep and the SAT Verbal Prep as two separate courses. Students may register for any individual course or for both courses.
