Software Publisher Releases P/SAT Preparatory
Edu-Ware has announced two software tutorials for college-bound students on mastering vocabulary and deciphering new words. PSAT Word Attack Skills and SAT Word Attack Skills prepare students specifically for the "antonyms" portion of the Scholastic Achievement Test.
PSAT and SAT Word Attack Skills each contain two diskettes: Prefixes and Roots. Vocabulary words, selected for their frequent appearance on the PSAT/SAT, are grouped into lessons (six per diskette). In each lesson, students first pinpoint a word's meaning by selecting its synonym. The word is then reviewed through definition, sample sentences, analysis of its components (root and/or prefixes), and a test question. A timed test then prepares students to function under pressure.
PSAT Word Attack Skills and SAT Word Attack Skills are independent tutorials, yet can be purchased and used together as a comprehensive sequence. Both systems are available for the Apple II and II Plus computers, 48K, DOS 3.3. Each two-disk package retails for $49.00.
