A&M International Begins SAT Preparation Class Sept. 26



Texas A&M International University's Office of Continuing Education will offer a "SAT Preparation" class on Saturdays from Sept. 26 - Nov. 21 at the University's main campus, 5201 University Boulevard.

The class will meet from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Sept. 26, Oct 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31, and Nov. 7, 14, and 21 in Pellegrino Hall rooms 219 and 221 for pre- and post-computer interactive testing and Building C room 122 for instructor-led presentations.

Tuition is $90. Topics to be covered in the class include sentence completion, general strategy, arithmetic, geometry, algebra, analogy, and critical reading.

The math portion of the class will be taught by Dr. Juan Moran-Lopez. The English portion of the class will be taught by Dr. Kathleen Pletsch de Garcia, assistant professor of English and Spanish at A&M International.

The class is ideal for high school students and others who need to take the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) for admission into institutions of higher learning.

SAT scores are required for admission into many colleges and universities. A&M International requires SAT or ACT (American College Testing) scores for entering freshman and applicants who have completed less than 30 semester credit hours of transferable college credit.

Interested persons may register for the course in the University's Office of Continuing Education located in the Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library, room 332.
