Outsmart the SAT. Ace the ACT.

Are you ready for the SAT and ACT?

The date is circled on the calendar. You’ve been prepping on your own for weeks—maybe months. There is nothing else you can do to get ready for the SAT or ACT.

Or is there?

Thanks to a new alliance between UNLV Continuing Education and Catalyst, a SAT/ACT test prep company, Las Vegas now has an affordable weekend test prep boot camp strategically scheduled the week before you take your college entrance exams.

Memories of a Lifetime: Continuing Education's Antarctic Cruise Continues

Participants in the Antarctic cruise find the beginning of each day is like opening a new gift from Mother Nature. So far their days have run the gamut -- from a penguin breeding colony to rafts of penguins; from seeing dramatic icebergs to riding the waves created by rocking icebergs, from yoga on the beach to camping in the snow atop an island.

New Boot Camps to Outsmart the SAT and ACT

UNLV Continuing Education has joined with Catalyst to offer SAT and ACT boot camps. The momentum-boosting weekend seminars will arm students with go-to strategies for every question they will face on the day of the test. Students will learn to spot hidden clues that instantly reveal the main idea in long reading passages. They will also find out how to avoid the four sneakiest ways SAT and ACT grammar questions try to trick students. In addition, students will be able to compose a perfect-score essay, no matter what question the SAT asks.
