Test Preparation Workshops

Are you in the process of applying for studies in the US and confronted with practicing for the SAT Reasoning, ACT and TOEFL tests? Do you have no time/discipline/incentive to go through that thick practice book or online course on your own? UStudy can help you! The test preparation workshops led by our American teachers are 2-3 hours long and conducted in English. UStudy offers both group and private lessons. To make the most use of these workshops, we limit the number of registrations for our group workshops.

The purpose of our workshops:

  • Gain familiarity with the design of the tests
  • Apply simple strategies and handy tricks
  • Practice these strategies
  • Tips for writing a ‘persuasive’ essay

Welcome to your Mock SAT/ACT. Good luck!


Q1. (x2y − 3y2 + 5xy2) − (−x2y + 3xy2 − 3y2)
Which of the following is equivalent to the expression above?


1 decagram = 10 grams 1,000 milligrams = 1 gram
A hospital stores one type of medicine in 2-decagram containers.

Based on the information given in the box above, how many 1-milligram doses are there in one 2-decagram container?


Use the passage below to answer the question.

Box’s research is important because the fires of 2012 may not be a one-time phenomenon. According to scientists, rising Arctic temperatures are making northern latitudes greener and thus more fire prone. The pattern Box observed in 2012 may repeat [?] itself again, with harmful effects on the Arctic ecosystem. Box is currently organizing an expedition to gather this crucial information. The next step for Box and his team is to travel to Greenland to perform direct sampling of the ice in order to determine just how much the soot is contributing to the melting of the ice sheet. Members of the public will be able to track his team’s progress—and even help fund the expedition—through a website Box has created.
