Diagnostic Practice Test
The best way to get familiar with the test experience is through a live, proctored PSAT. Bring your practice test book, pencils, and a graphing or scientific calculator.
You will take a full length practice test to assess your current performance, strengths, and weaknesses. With Kaplan's Mobile scoring tool, you'll get your score instantly after the test.
Afterward, log into your account on Kaptest.com to find customized study recommendations based on how you performed on the diagnostic test.
Introduction to the Kaplan Methods
Success on the PSAT comes with sound strategy, confidence, and focused practice. In the first session of your class, you'll learn the Kaplan Methods for Math, Reading Comprehension, Writing & Language, and Infographics. These four Kaplan Methods are strategic tools that will boost your confidence and enable you to complete practice questions and passages more effectively.
You'll learn to apply the Kaplan Method for Reading Comprehension to identify passage types, create passages maps, and confidently predict and match correct answers in Reading.
The Kaplan Method for Math will aid you through both the Calculator and No Calculator Math tests. You'll begin by applying it to linear equations in algebra.
With the Kaplan Method for Writing & Language, you'll be empowered to answer any Writing & Language question, while the Kaplan Method for Infographics will allow you to work confidently with the infographics that you'll encounter in every section of the test.
Systems of Equations, Ratios, Global and Command of Evidence Questions, and Organization
You'll begin this session with opportunities to apply the Kaplan Method for Math to two new areas: systems of equations and rates, ratios, proportions, and percentages. You'll also add the Kaplan Method for Multi-Part Math to your strategic arsenal, ensuring that you can handle any multi-part math questions that come your way on Test Day.
In the Reading portion of this session, you'll use the Kaplan Method for Reading to tackle two of the most fundamental question types: Global and Command of Evidence. Global questions deal with the passage as a whole, while Command of Evidence questions require you to find textual support in the passage to justify the answer to a previous question.
Finally, you'll continue applying the Kaplan Method for Writing & Language, this time to answer questions on how an author organizes a passage and manages transitions.
Put all those Kaplan strategies that you've learned in class to the test by taking another full length practice test. Once again, you'll want to bring your practice test book, pencils, and a graphing or scientific calculator to this live proctoring session so you get the most realistic practice with the content and format of the PSAT.
Once again you'll get your score instantly after completing the exam, plus even more customized study recommendations to help you down the final stretch of your test prep. Use these recommendations to refine your practice, so you can prepare for Test Day with confidence!
Advanced Topics in Math, Reading Comprehension, and Writing & Language
In your final session, you'll learn to handle some of the most challenging material tested on the PSAT with skill and confidence.
Beginning with Math, you'll apply the Kaplan Method for Math to questions on exponents, radicals, polynomials, and rational expressions and equations, as well as to questions on functions.
In Reading Comprehension, you'll tackle Connections questions that require you to identify relationships in passages and Vocab-in-Context questions in which you'll identify what the author means by particular words and phrases.
Finally, you'll learn to use the Kaplan Method for Writing & Language to handle questions on sentence structure.
By the end of the class, you'll be able to apply the Kaplan Methods to any question you encounter. You'll head into Test Day feeling ready and confident. Good luck!
