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.

These momentum-boosting weekend seminars will arm students like you with go-to strategies for every question you face on the day of the test. You will learn to spot hidden clues that instantly reveal the main idea in long reading passages. You will also find out how to avoid the four sneakiest ways SAT and ACT grammar questions try to trick students. In addition, you will apply a proven formula for composing a perfect-score essay, no matter what question the test asks.

Catalyst’s programs are designed by instructors who have earned multiple perfect scores on the actual tests. Students will receive a test prep book, self-study materials, and diagnostic tests, as well as copies of essays that have earned perfect scores on actual SATs.

Las Vegas sessions will be held in January, March, and April, each the weekend before a scheduled college entrance exam date. All sessions are held at UNLV’s Paradise Campus, on the southeast corner of Tropicana and Swenson immediately south of the main campus. Ample parking is available. Registration for SAT or ACT boot camp is $165. Pre-registration is required; walk-in students cannot be accommodated.
