SAT & ACT PREP FOR STUDENTS
Be SAT Wise (formerly Be College Wise), is teacher created and teacher driven SAT & ACT prep company. Both our weekend SAT & ACT prep classes - called Bootcamps - and our 3&4 week SAT classes are the least expensive in Southern California. We use College Board materials (click here to learn more about the College Board) to build a comprehensive SAT prep program designed around the learning styles of high school students. The College Board is the sponsor and administrator of the SAT test - so make sure you become very familiar with this company. Our mock SAT tests are from The Official SAT Study Guide by the College Board. Any other mock practice tests are "garbage & useless", says Mike Barrett, author of the SAT Prep Black Book. We use ACT, Inc. materials to build our comprehensive ACT Prep Program. We use only ACT. Inc. mock exams to prep students for the actual ACT test. If you and your child are serious about a 4 year college, then you must become very familiar wtih both The College Board and ACT Inc. A good --> very good score on etiher the SAT or the ACT (better yet on both!) plays a very important role in the college admissions process. A great score on the SAT is 1400+. A great score on the ACT is 30+
The Be SAT Wise program is designed to model an interactive classroom.
We use direct instruction, guided practice, group & individual work. Since we score our own tests/mock exams, we are able to point out students’ simple bubbling errors as well as emphasizing the importance of prudent test taking strategies.
THE COLLEGE BOARD
The use of the College Board materials gives our students the advantage of practicing with curriculum that has been used on previous actual SAT tests.
Be SAT Wise is supported and recognized by local administrators, counselors and university academia as a successful and reputable program and company.
