Webinar: 5 Most Common Mistakes in the SAT/ACT Math Sections

The SAT and ACT Math sections, in many ways, might seem more straightforward and transparent than the other sections on the tests. The content is fairly predictable and every question has a definitively right answer. Though many students will find their coursework from school to be a great starting point for these sections, students often bring some baggage as well—from anxiety about math in general to overconfidence and a propensity for careless mistakes. Join Ben Morris, Signet Education's Test Prep Coordinator, for a webinar on some of the more strategic aspects of preparing for and taking the SAT and ACT math sections.

Webinar: 5 Most Common Mistakes in the SAT/ACT Verbal Sections

The SAT and ACT Verbal sections—Reading and Writing for the SAT, Reading and English for the ACT (with an honorable mention to the ACT Science section!)—can feel daunting for students. Unlike the Math sections, there isn't as much content for students to learn or review. Some might feel like they "just aren't good at reading" which holds them back. Join Ben Morris, Signet Education's Test Prep Coordinator, for some tips on how to prepare for the SAT and ACT Verbal sections and some common pitfalls to avoid.
