     Registrations are now being accepted for the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown SAT Super Series, an academic review for the SAT.  The SAT Super Series helps remove the mystery behind the SAT exam and better prepares students for exam day.

     Students are encouraged to enroll in the preliminary session being held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 13.  Participants in this session will complete an abbreviated version of the SAT to identify specific areas that might need attention in order to improve their score.  Both courses are being taught by UPJ instructors.

     The Writing and Critical Reading Review will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, February 23.  Dr. David Magill will review the written essay, sentence completion, vocabulary, and critical reading.
