Stuck on Statistics?
Tuesday, May 12th, 7:00pm-7:45pm
Statistics is a common struggle on the SAT & ACT. Very few students have taken a statistics class by their first exam date, and so they feel bewildered by statistical questions. But, the concepts tested are actually quite simple and easy to learn. Some of the hardest questions can be solved just by knowing the definitions of words. From mean, median, and mode to standard deviation, the topics in this workshop can provide a quick, efficient boost to your test score. To register, click here.

Most students have two punctuation marks in their arsenal: the period and the comma. But what about the rest of them?
