Free full-length practice SAT at Westland Public Library

SAT

On Saturday, February 2, 2019, from 9:15 AM – 1:00 PM, the Westland Public Library is offering a FREE full-length practice SAT to get students in Grades 9th – 12th prepared for the real test in April.  Taking a practice SAT is a great way for students to get familiar with the format, figure out their strengths and weaknesses, and pinpoint exactly where to focus to get the best results.  The practice test will be provided and administered by Sylvan Learning of Livonia and will take roughly 3 hours to complete.  The tests will then be graded and results will be mailed to the participants for review. 

Registration is required.  To register, students can visit the library, call the library at 734-326-6123 or register online.  There is space for 50 students.  Participants must arrive on time or admittance to the practice test will not be allowed.
