COURSE CONTENTS

    7 Common Principles

    These 7 Common Principles are the main strategies used to teach students how to BEAT the TESTS!  From how to use the process of elimination to how to think inductively and deductively, we teach your students to strategically think about the tests differently.  Once they know these principles, they will no longer think of these tests as English, Math, Reading and Science tests, but a test that they can learn how to beat.
