Test Preparation Programs

ACT/SAT/GED/LSAT/RN

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

A key component of test preparation programs tailored to adult learners focuses on preparing individuals to meet the specific requirements of college admissions, certification or licensing examinations.  The statement is often made that you can not study for these tests.  That is true in terms of test-taking.  It is NOT true in terms of the skills that are required to do well on these important tests.   Common to all of these "tests" are those general skills in vocabulary, comprehension and speed reading in addition to subject-specific content.

 

VOCABULARY - The test developers do not expect you to know all of the words.  They are interested in how well you can figure out the meaning.  This is considered a measure of intelligence, but it is a learned skill.

WRITING - There are many steps in developing the ability to write clearly and concisely.  These are learned skills.  They are a key part of success in college.

MATHEMATICS - Not all of the items on the test are advanced mathematics.  It is important to review math fundamentals (fractions, decimals, percents) which you may not have worked with for years.  Understanding the concepts behind advanced algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus are important - but do not miss out on the fundamentals.

SCIENCE & SOCIAL STUDIES - Other aspects of these tests are based on reading and comprehension.  You need these skills for success in college and on the college boards.  Many colleges are routinely recommending - even to good students - that they take a speed reading course so they will be able to handle the quantity of work required for success in college classes.

We do not teach "to the test" , but rather teach skills and knowledge that are essential for success ON the test and beyond.  Since these are individual programs, our plan will be to meet the goals specified by the learners themselves.

Some of the tests that our training address:

  • General Educational Development Tests (GED)

  • College Entrance Examinations (ACT and SAT).

  • Graduate Record Examinations (GRE)

  • Law School Admissions Tests.(LSAT)

  • Bar Examinations (Law and Nursing)

All classes are held at the Akron Education Campus, 700 Ghent Road, Akron, Ohio  44333
