                        SAT MATHPRO

                http://www.satmathpro.com/

  SAT Math Pro was developed by Colleen King, a math teacher
  and SAT instructor. She recommends that students prepare for
  the SAT by

    - solving as many SAT math problems as possible
    - trying a few practice exams to become familiar with
        the test
    - learning some strategies for handling multiple choice
        questions
    - brushing up on basic arithmetic, algebra, and geometry

  King freely offers video instruction categorized under these
  categories:

    - Assess
    - Practice
    - Strategies
