The goal of the Academic Literacy Skills Test (ALST) Prep course is to prepare
teachers and paraprofessionals for the Academic Literacy Skills Test, which
is a critical component of the New York Certification Examination. The ALST
replaces the Liberal Art and Science Test (LAST). The course will cover two
main areas, reading and writing to sources.
The purpose for this course is to learn and
understand how to counterattack the obstacles
forbidding students from being successful in
mathematics and beyond. It is not enough to
understand why students fail. It is better to know
what to do beforehand in order to eliminate this
fear once and for all. Let’s eliminate this fear by
doing math!
This course is designed to prepare students in
four test areas of TEAS: Math, Reading, English,
and Science. We will review nursing mathematics,
reading comprehension including identification
of main ideas, inferences and conclusions. We
will re-examine English grammar, punctuation,
sentence structure, contextual words and
spelling. We will also review basic sciences
which will include biology, chemistry, physical
principles, general science and anatomy and
physiology. The course will cover science
reasoning and will also furnish study skills
essential for passing any nursing schools
entrance exams.

My Social Security is a very important
service offering that affects workers
of every age since many are currently
working or are already receiving
Social Security (and/or Supplemental
Security Income) benefits.
• For those not quite ready for retirement, My Social Security
empowers workers to take control of their financial future by
accessing their annual Social Security Statement and our Online
Retirement Estimator to do some basic financial planning. • For those preparing for retirement, workers age 62+ may apply
online for retirement benefits and sign up for traditional Medicare. • For those already receiving a monthly Social Security benefit,
they now may access their benefit information online and change
their address and direct deposit, all without calling or visiting a
Social Security office. (This is especially important for people
who must provide proof of their income from Social Security
when recertifying for public housing or needs-based assistance
programs because they now may print their Award or Benefit
Verification Letters, which means no more waiting for the mail!)
