JERSEY CITY, N.J. / February 5, 2018 – It’s no secret that higher Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores can give students a better chance at merit-based financial aid, open scholarship opportunities, and provide an overall edge in college admissions.  

A successful academic future begins with preparation. It’s reported that a SAT prep course can boost scores by an average of more than 50 points. A higher score can even help balance out a low high school GPA.

Hudson County Community College Department of Continuing Education is set to ready students for SAT testing with SAT Preparation courses from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for Language Arts Prep and 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. for Math.  Courses will run on February 3, 10, 17, 24, and March 3 . Tuition is $175 per course.  There are five intensive two-hour sessions for each section – Language Arts and Math.

The SAT Prep courses will help students develop test-taking skills and improve SAT scores. Pre- and post-testing will be used to measure progress. Additional test-taking tips will be provided, along with test samples from actual SAT exams. Students will need to purchase the College Board SAT textbook, and other materials that may be required. The list will be included at time of registration.

Competition to get into top colleges can be fierce. Most education institutions emphasize standardized test schools in their admissions criteria, and the SAT is universally accepted and respected.
