Calling All JUNIORS! Our theme for this year is preparedness for your future. With that in mind, I know that many of you are already preparing for the PSATs and SATs by taking the Saturday Kaplan's Review Course at our school or working with other tutors outside of school. If you have not started to prepare, please go to Barnes and Noble and at least buy a review book and do some practice exams. It is important to have the stamina to complete the test, to be familiar with the format of the test and with the timing to be able to do your best.
In addition to SATs most top notch colleges and universities require at least two SAT II subject area tests. These are tests given in particular subject areas at various times during the year. SAT IIs are one hour long multiple choice tests that do require a considerable amount of studying. I know that some juniors are interested in forming study groups for the SAT II tests, which are very different from Regents Examinations and AP tests. These groups could meet at determined times before or after school or during lunch (based on what students decide) and we can arrange to have a teacher come to help sometimes. If you are interested in joining an SAT II study group, please let me know by posting a response with your name and the subject(s) you are interested in working on. (It would great to have students form a study group for US History as well as for MATH 1--possibly for Mandarin as well).
