Are You Ready for Fall SAT & ACT Exams?


School is back in session, and as fall approaches, exam dates for the SAT and ACT loom large. You may have studied throughout the summer, but will you be ready for the tests when you’re well into the school year?

At B2A, we have a few ways to keep you on the right track. For one, we are offering two kinds of test-prep classes this fall: semester-long courses and cram courses.

In our semester-long courses, you will learn the ins and outs of your chosen college entrance exam over 16 weeks of study. Classes are broken up into individual subjects and go over a mixture of test-taking strategies and actual concepts. Each week students will also be required to take diagnostic tests to monitor their progress. For the most in-depth and structure study, it is recommended that students take this course, especially students who have little or no previous experience with the test.

  • For the SAT class, you will study Critical Reading, Writing, Vocab/Essay, and Math. Each subject is its own 1-hour block (4 hours total per week), with its own lesson, practice problems, and homework sets. 16 diagnostic tests are taken, 4 of which are proctored.

  • For the ACT class, you will study Reading, English, Essay, Math, and Science. Each subject is its own 1-hour block (5 hours total per week), with its own lessons, practice problems, and homework sets. 16 diagnostic tests are taken, 4 of which are proctored.

In our cram courses, you will learn the fundamentals of your chosen college entrance exam over 6 weeks of study. Classes are broken up into individual subjects and go over a mixture of test-taking strategies and actual concepts. Students will take two proctored tests as part of the cram course. For a crash course in the key components of the test or a way to remember concepts learned over the summer, it is recommended that students take this course. Also, if you are strapped for time, the cram class will do well to provide a solid overview and get you comfortable and confident with the test.

  • For the SAT class, you will study Critical Reading, Writing/Essay, and Math. Each subject is its own 2-hour block (6 hours total per week), with its own lesson, practice problems, and homework sets.

  • For the ACT class, you will study Reading, English/Essay, and Math/Science. Each subject is its own 2-hour block (6 hours total per week), with its own lesson, practice problems, and homework sets.

It may be that you have no time for a semester-long or cram course. What can you do? Take private or group tutoring! An option that is highly flexible to your needs, tutoring will allow you to focus on areas that are in most need of improving so you can get the best score. If you find yourself with only free time on weeknights or with an irregular schedule, it may be best to set up tutoring appointments to pinpoint how you can better approach the SAT or ACT.
