Free Mock SHSAT Exams

In our experience, mock tests are the single most useful tool for developing your test-taking skills. Available for many standardized exams, including the SAT, ACT, Subject Tests, AP, and SHSAT/ISEE, CATES mock tests are taken in a simulated testing center and administered by a proctor. Students take their exams in the company of other students and under the actual timing and corresponding break schedule of the real exams. The experience provides a unique opportunity to improve mental focus and test-taking stamina under real testing conditions, as well as to identify content areas that need extra preparation.

CATES was a participant in October's East Side Middle School Academic Resource Fair
