Description

The educational program is developed and taught in conjunction with Princeton Review: this is a very effective course for those who plan to pass the SAT and SSAT exams on high scores before entering American schools, colleges and universities. Students will study the specifics and subtleties of these exams, the structure of each of its blocks, typical difficulties and mistakes: it will help to remove the psychological barrier and prepare for any surprises, any tasks.

In addition to intensive preparatory classes, the students will pass two trial tests (access to the Princeton Review Online Student Center). So the students will be able to identify and quickly correct their knowledge gaps, to pay more attention to the most difficult tasks and parts, to receive valuable recommendations and advice from teachers on further preparation.
