NEW COMPUTER TUTOR HELPS STUDENTS STUDY

 LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Students planning to study this year for hard-to-take tests -- such as the SAT or GRE, or chemistry, calculus and physics -- can either sweat it out, or turn to Cliffs StudyWare for relief and study assistance.
 Cliffs StudyWare is software for both IBM and Macintosh computers from Cliffs Notes, an old stand-by for many students and the nation's leading publisher of education study guides.
 The software is available in a series of products to help students study for college preparatory tests -- such as the heavy-hitting SAT, ACT, GMAT, LSAT and GRE. There also is course review software for entry-level college and accelerated high school courses in biology, calculus, chemistry, economics, physics and statistics.
 What makes Cliffs StudyWare so special is its ability to diagnose a student's performance and suggest a plan for further study. The software analyzes student performance and provides printed diagnostic reports highlighting areas of strength and areas that need improvement. The system then automatically adjusts for each student's needs.
 Cliffs StudyWare has hundreds of on-screen questions plus a comprehensive study guide, so students can test their knowledge of every topic they will face on the actual test. The program explains all the answers, correct as well as incorrect. There's even an on-screen glossary of key terms and symbols.
 There are four sample exams, two on-screen and two in the companion study guide. Students are timed through each exam to give them the feel of the actual test they will take.
 Both the Cliffs StudyWare standardized test preparation and course review software are available in IBM and Macintosh formats and can be found at local book stores, college stores and computer retail outlets. They also can be found on the computers of many successful students.
 Cliffs StudyWare is a line of educational software from Cliffs Notes, Inc., a 35-year-old publisher of literary study guides, standardized test preparation materials and software for high school and college students. Cliffs Notes products have been used by millions of high school and college students and educators. Cliffs Notes, Inc. is based in Lincoln.
