REFRESH Skills Refreshers Releases a Smart and Much Needed Edge on College Placement Tests

PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 27, 2012 - ASHLAND, Ore. – REFRESH Skills Refreshers has just released a uniquely designed educational skills refresher program that focuses on assisting prospective students to do their best on college placement tests. This program is called REFRESH College Placement Test Refresher.  It was just released this month, and shows strong promise as a potent study skills guide, skills review aid and skills booster for the college placement test.

A survey of community college libraries, testing and resource centers across the nation indicate that the available resources for students wanting and needing to refresh their skills prior to taking college placement tests are books.  The most common student complaints regarding books as skills refresher resources are (1) they take too long to go through all the material, (2) there are too many books to have to study, and (3) not everything on the actual college placement test can be found in the random selection of books available.  It is clear that students need the ability to assess their skills and knowledge.  An assessment will help students to identify their problem areas of study -- those skills in which they need to get the rust out.  The assessment should be aligned with what is on the college placement test to be truly effective.  And then, students can proceed in refreshing the specific skills they are lacking or need updated or have learning gaps in.  REFRESH College Placement Test Refresher contains both a pre-assessment and post-assessment.  The pre-assessment identifies one's skill weaknesses.  It is taken prior to studying the program content.  After the program is completed, students are then given a post-assessment that measures a student's readiness for taking the college placement test.  

"College placement test-takers who have been out of school for six months or more will particularly benefit from REFRESH," states Dezra L. Guthrie, the mind behind the unique study skills guides.  But why is it so important to score high on the college placement test anyway?  Guthrie, a former community college instructor, provides convincing reasoning, "Those who cannot score high enough to meet pre-requisite scores are forced to take Developmental Education courses -- this can amount to an additional year of college coursework.  In some cases, students will become so discouraged by the additional time required to meet prerequisites, that they will simply set aside their educations.  This is just not necessary in most cases, if you have the proper study skills and skills review resources, such as what the REFRESH College Placement Test Refresher offers," confirms Ms. Guthrie.

REFRESH Skills Refreshers, is a division of World Class Educational Services -- an educational umbrella company owned and operated by Dezra L. Guthrie.  The REFRESH College Placement Test program consists of four REFRESH Skills Refreshers:  English Refresher, Math Refresher, Reading Refresher and Writing Refresher.  Each course consists of 7-10 review modules.  The review modules consist of lesson content, exercises, activities, assignments, links and quizzes; and are designed to be aligned with what is on standard college placement tests.

Colleges all over the nation require placement testing, but do not provide the proper resources for students to succeed on the college placement test.  Their libraries, testing and resource centers offer books.  Books do not suffice as skills refresher study guides.  REFRESH Skills Refresher's College Placement Test Refresher (program) is now available for college, students, corporations or anyone to purchase and can be found at refreshskills(dot)com.
