Strategy Seminars for SAT Prep

ZAPS® Seminars Boost Confidence and Test Scores

Students taking Doorway to College’s ZAPS SAT prep classes typically raise their scores by at least 50 to 150 points. Many ZAPS students score much higher.

In the 5-hour SAT seminar, your child will learn important test-taking strategies and tips. He or she will also take four shortened practice tests (about 20 minutes each) to immediately apply the strategies learned, and get a feel for the actual SAT or PSAT testing experience.
