TAMIU Offers SAT Preparation Course in 2005

TAMIU Offers SAT Preparation Course


Students who want to take the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) for college entrance can take advantage of a SAT preparation workshop being offered by the Office of Special Programs at Texas A&M International University starting Saturday, Jan. 8, 2005.

The 32-hour course is designed to build skills required in math, English, and writing to secure an improved SAT score. Classes will meet on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Jessica Villarreal, program coordinator, said the course cost is $250 and includes pre-test, post-test, and books. As in previous years, TAMIU instructors will teach the workshop. She said enrollment is limited, so students are encouraged to register as early as possible.

The next SAT exam will be held Saturday, March 12, 2005.

Villarreal said the course was a good idea, because completing SAT preparation workshops help reduce test anxiety and improves test-taking skills and confidence, often increasing SAT scores.

For more information on the SAT preparation workshop, please contact Villarreal at 326.2765 or e-mail jesvillarreal@tamiu.edu.

University office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Offices will be closed Friday, Dec. 24, 2004 until Monday, Jan. 3, 2005.
