     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. Thursday, October 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. 

     The Mathematics Review will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, October 15.  Victoria Czarnek, Pitt-Johnstown instructor of mathematics, will review arithmetic, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics.

     The Writing and Critical Reading Review will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, October 22.  Lance Harshbarger will review the written essay, sentence completion, vocabulary, and critical reading.

     Seating is limited for these sessions and early registration is suggested.  The Pitt PowerPrice is $129 for the series and $69 per course.  In order to qualify for the Pitt PowerPrice, registrations and payments must be received no later than noon, Wednesday, September 14.  An on-campus lunch will be provided for all Saturday participants.  Registrations received after September 14 will be $159 for the series and $85 per course.
