West Windsor, N.J. - This spring and summer, Mercer County Community College's Center for Continuing Studies (CCS) will offer test prep courses designed to boost test-takers' confidence as they explore strategies for success. Short-term classes meet in evening sessions at MCCC's West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

A new course to assist those preparing for law school is "Law School Admission Test (LSAT) Review," which will be offered May 10, 17 and 24. Participants will discuss time management strategies, score interpretation, and effective preparation strategies. Review material will focus on the application of logical and analytical reasoning, reading comprehension, writing practice, proofreading, revision, and more. Additional graduate school preparatory courses are "Graduate Record (GRE) Review" from June 8-July 13 and the Graduate Management Admittance Test (GMAT) Review from June 10-July 15.

Students enrolling at MCCC or other community colleges may be required to take Accuplacer, a test that assesses math, reading and writing skills for accurate placement in college-level courses. A new CCS course is "Accuplacer Review," which will meet for six sessions from May 11-27. It provides participants with a thorough review of material on the test, including basic arithmetic, elementary algebra, geometry, and college-level math, as well as a language review that includes sentence structure skills, writing and reading comprehension. Participants will also discuss test-taking and time management strategies. In addition to adult learners, this course is open to high school juniors and seniors 16 and up.

For aspiring elementary school teachers, the center offers the "Praxis II Prep Course" from June 7-July 17. Test preparation will focus on language arts, mathematics, social studies and science.
