Why take the SAT Chemistry Subject Test?
A high score on the SAT Subject Test in Chemistry is a great way to showcase your college application, especially if you intend to major in science or engineering!

Why take this class at MJ Test Prep?
Nationwide, students that take a science SAT subject test are typically very strong students taking the most challenging courses at their respective schools.  To distinguish yourself, you need to correctly answer questions missed most by your competition – you must master those topics that are on the test but barely covered in the best chemistry classes at the best schools.  Let the competition struggle while you master questions on Ksp, free energy, galvanic cells, pH, beta decay, real gases, and vapor pressure.
