During our open classes, many students (as well as their parents) often ask us what books we recommend picking up when preparing for SAT reading? While Rui answered many of these questions during his webinar (See the recording at the bottom of the page - he answers many questions!) The question is not easy - but neither is preparing for the exam! We always believe in studying smart and strategically, as everybody learns differently.
Last Week's (6/13/2020) "SAT Reading: Redesigned" Open Class Recording
As our Rui mentioned, there are no specific shortcuts to truly prepare oneself for the Reading portion of the exam - the best and most assured route for success points to one direction - reading every single day.
Thus, the 7EDU team will share our SAT reading list with everyone, hopefully to provide some directions for parents and children on where to begin with literature.

Don't miss out on our next live event - Constructing Successful Admissions essays with Dr. Niemann! 6/20/2020 6:00pm PDT
Many students share the feeling of brain fog and anxiety when looking at what prompts to choose, thinking of what to write about, considering how to make a unique appeal, or even deciding how to begin outlining their first draft. You are not alone; most of us have been there, struggled, & have learned that there is always value in taking the first step in the right direction. To help with these difficulties, we will be hosting a Live Webinar this Saturday on College Admissions with one of our most passionate educators - Dr. Niemann.
In addition to the live webinar this Saturday evening, our speaker, Dr. Niemann👨🏫, will also be hosting an introductory course this summer on constructing admissions essays, including but not limited to:
* Perspectives and expectations of the admissions officers,
* Essential writing techniques & rhetorical strategies to translate personality & competence into powerful, personal statements.
* How each student can develop the confidence to authentically approach essays with an attitude of success.
* Students will also be analyzing recent successful admissions essays from top-tier colleges & obtaining insights into how they themselves will approach their top-pick colleges.
You can register for your Zoom Invitation to the live lecture for FREE before 6/20 5:50pm
