Chappaqua Library Holds PSAT for Teens

CHAPPAQUA, NY-- From the time students enter high school, the importance of scoring high on the SATs are drilled into their heads. Students understand that in order to get into college, they must study endless hours in order to make a high grade on the SAT.

Studying is not the only way students should prepare for the SAT. They should also take a practice SAT so they can get a feel for what to expect on the big test day. You do not want to send your student into a testing room with no clue what to expect.

Since the Chappaqua Library understands the importance of a great education, they are holding a practice SAT test Saturday from 8:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“It's important so that the teens can get a gauge of what they need to study more without having any repercussions” said Zahra M. Baird, head of Teen Services at the Chappaqua Library. “it's important to simulate a real life test situation because many kids have not written a test before, so we want to make them feel confident that they can do it.”

The test will be proctored by Kaplan. After tests are scored, students will have the benefit of getting a detailed report on their test, which includes areas they need to improve on and areas they are strongest in. This will direct students during their study time.

“The college application process is long and hard, students should take any help that's free. Support is also very important. Our PSAT is free for students and gives them the support of knowing what to study and who can help.” said Baird. “We also have a great college section with books they can use to study and online resources they can also use for free that will help them prepare”

Individual consultations will also be available after the test. The library urges all high school students to participate. Registration is required as space is limited.
