This is a 12 week DVD program. The author was at CHEA and has taught this class in San Diego this year.
This curriculum is designed to help students prepare for the SAT and PSAT. These standardized exams are logic-based, and all their questions examine the reasoning skills of students. It is the goal of the College Prep Genius program to help students approach these tests with a logical mind set to help them identify the correct answers.
At the core of this program we focus on specific strategies for approaching test questions. We emphasize memorizing acronyms to help students remember patterns and tricks of the SAT/PSAT.
It is highly recommended that students take a practice test (SAT/PSAT) before they begin the DVD program. This will give a reference point for where students are starting. A full test can be found in The Official SAT Study Guide or at any local guidance counselor’s office or downloaded free from www.collegeboard.com. Students should then retake the same test after they have finished “The Master the SAT Class” to gauge improvement.
The DVD Homework is designed to help you follow along the DVD curriculum in a 12-part format, approximately one hour per lesson. As students learn the curriculum information, they immediately get the chance to practice their knowledge by pausing the lesson and practicing in their workbooks.
Author claims: Many of our students through the years have raised their SAT scores between 300 and 600 points, and we also have numerous students who have received high PSAT/NMSQT scores and have become National Merit Scholars. None of this happened without practice. If a student is to do well, he or she must practice!
Homework is about 1 hour or more depending what your child wants to achieve. See .pdf below for more info.
