buttonSAT/ACT Group Course: August 19-October 8, 2017

Learn all the content and test-taking tricks for the NEW versions of the SAT and ACT. The top score for the SAT is going back to 1600 after a decade at 2400. Changes include: 1) just two sections, Math and Reading/Writing; 2) essay is optional and is not part of the 1600 scoring; 3) no deduction for wrong answers; 4) only 4 answer choices per question, not 5; 4) only 4 sections (5 if doing the essay), not 10; one of the math sections is “no calculator,” the other is “yes, calculator.” Students learn multiple solutions for all the types of questions they will encounter: arithmetic, percents, algebra, geometry, ratios, probability, statistics, word problems, trigonometry, functions, etc on the Math side; reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, and writing logic on the Verbal side; the most effective and time-efficient ways to write the timed essay.

  • HSPT
    button

    8th Graders applying for admission to many private and parochial schools take the HSPT (High School Placement Test), a nationally administered exam that has both challenging content and tricky formatting. With the Test Whisperer, students improve their ability to answer questions featuring synonyms, analogies, critical reading, arithmetic, percents, basic algebra and geometry, word problems, and a written essay. Aspiring parochial school students enter the test with a tremendous amount of skill and confidence in order to produce their best scores.

  • GMAT
    button

    Applying to Business School for an MBA? You will need to take the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test). The four sections that will remind you of your days taking the SAT are Analytical Writing Assessment (essay), Integrated Reasoning (interpreting charts, graphs, tables), Quantitative (Math), and Verbal (Reading Comprehension, Critical Assessment, Grammar Correction). Many college graduates applying to BSchool haven’t taken math or any standardized test since high school–don’t worry, the Test Whisperer can help. Students also learn how to overcome the specific challenges of taking a test via computer.

  • GRE
    button

    Applying to graduate school for English, History, Sociology, Political Science, or most fields other than Law/Business/Medicine? You’ll probably have to take the GRE (Graduate Record Examinations). The major sections are Verbal, Quantitative, and Analytical Writing, and the test is administered via a computer at a specialized location. Science grad students may also take “GRE Subject Tests,” nearly three hours long and designed to gauge their broad-based knowledge of a specific discipline. Like the GMAT, the GRE is administered via computer.


  • LSAT
    button

    That’s right: Law school applicants have to take a standardized test, too. The LSAT (Law School Admission Test) has three types of questions: Reading Comprehension, Analytical Reasoning, and Logical Reasoning. The test features intricate passages followed by challenging questions, argumentative paragraphs that need to be dissected for flaws, and confusing logic “games” such as 7 people at a dinner part with restrictions as to who may or may not sit next to whom. What do these questions have to do with practicing law? Virtually nothing! However, prospective law school students had better figure out a way to plow through the test quickly and accurately, which the Test Whisperer helps them do. The LSAT is still given with a paper booklet and “bubble sheet,” unline the GMAT and GRE (which are taken via computer).

  • SSAT/ISEE
    button

    Many students applying to boarding schools and private day schools must take the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test) or ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination). These exams overlap with the HSPT in content: vocabulary, critical reading, arithmetic, percents, basic algebra and geometry, word problems, a written essay, and more. All of these can be daunting to 13 year-old test takers! The Test Whisperer helps students master the content, learn specific techniques for approaching each type of questions, and head into the testing room knowing exactly what to expect.

  • Subject Tests
    button

    Many of the selective and highly selective colleges and universities require two or more Subject Tests. Why? Well, for example, you may claim to speak, understand, and read Spanish and have even gotten A’s in Spanish classes at your high school–now prove via the College Board that you really know the language! Learn content and test strategies for the following one-hour exams: Literature, World History, U.S. History, Math Level I, Math Level II, Spanish, & Spanish with listening. For other exams, let the Test Whisperer refer you to a colleague for Biology, Chemistry & Physics, or French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Girls hoping to be admitted as Xavier Gators walk into the testing room knowing exactly what types of questions will be on the exam, and how to approach them.
