# SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) PREP COURSE

Collegeboard Homepage
SAT Test Dates and Fees

These are the materials I created for an eight-week SAT Math Prep Course (one hour each week).

• I recommend that you print each of the SATStuff#1–#8 handouts.
(They're pretty compact, so they can be easily copied if you're using these materials for a class.)
• Each SATStuff handout has a bunch of questions (with answers) for practice.
There's also a version without answers and pictures, so you can customize to your own needs.
• If you need more in-depth practice,
consider going through each of the web exercises in my Map of SAT Math Content to Fisher Site.
