Sylvan Practice Test: SAT

We are welcoming back Sylvan Learning Center administer a full length SAT practice test. This test  is open to teens aged 14-17.  Participants are to bring their own calculator and pencils. They must attend the entire session. Registration is required and although participants do not need to be Canton residents, they do need to have a valid library card entered in the CPL system to register.

Please Note: Sylvan administers one form of the SAT diagnostic test. If you attend more than one of these sessions, you will be repeating the same test each time.  As a result, any improvements in SAT scores from one Sylvan session to another may not accurately reflect how one might do on the actual SAT test.
