What is the SHSAT?

The Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) is a high school admissions test that students in New York must take to be accepted into one of the specialized high schools. The SHSAT is composed of a Revising/Editing section, a reading comprehension section, and a math section. This course focuses solely on the math portion of the SHSAT. 

Most students take the SHSAT in the beginning of their 8th grade year. The majority of math concepts on the SHSAT are taught in 7th and 8th grades. For that reason, this course is useful for any 7th or 8th grade math student who is looking for extra practice. A math student may use this course to supplement what they are learning in school or as a crash course to prepare for an entrance exam, like the SHSAT. While this math course was designed specifically with the SHSAT in mind, any 7th or 8th grade math student would benefit from the knowledge contained in this course.
