  • Give you an overview of the test format and structure
  • Help you learn the different question types and successful strategies for each question type
  • Help you individualize effective time-saving strategies based on your strengths and weaknesses
  • Teach you what content is assessed by the test
  • Help you determine what content areas you need to improve and provide ways for you to improve those skills
  • Provide in-class instruction on all strategies taught
  • Allow for hands-on practice of the computer format through the use of an on-line program
  • Provide (optional) out-of-class practice to allow you to continue to improve your skills even after the course ends
