From September to June, high schoolers can count on an opportunity to take at least one of the two big college admissions tests every month. Some months, however, offer ambitious test takers shots at both the SAT and ACT. Sitting for both exams in rapid succession can be a better idea than you’d think, especially in December.

For many, the Science section of the ACT is frightening because students think they need to be experts in different science disciplines. This master class will demonstrate the necessary skills needed to do well on the ACT Science section. Students will learn how to apply the same cognitive skills they use for the Reading section to master quantitative information. Students will review basic knowledge needed to understand ANY type of science passage, including experimental design, identifying patterns in tables and graphs, and interpreting data.
