How To Prepare For SAT
How to prepare for the SAT is different for every test taker; however, this article will give you general guidelines on how to prepare for the SAT. I will divide preparation for the SAT into early preparation, regular preparation, and before test preparation. Starting preparation early will allow you to have enough time to prepare in these three stages and have the best chance of obtaining a high score on the SAT.
For early preparation, the best start for early preparation is to find an SAT tutor to test you with a practice SAT test that is as close as possible to the real SAT test. You should take the SAT test under as similar to test date conditions as possible by taking all sections at the same time and taking breaks no longer than you would have on test day. Your SAT tutor can take the results and discuss with you your results compared to the score that would be needed to gain entrance to your top choice college.
The SAT tutor can guide you in educational choices if you have a few years until the SAT by either suggesting certain reading that might be interesting and helpful or advice on what future math class topics to concentrate on to make sure you score highly on the SAT. If you are preparing early, your SAT tutor can help you prepare you for the PSAT to help you obtain the National Merit Scholarship. Obtaining the National Merit Scholarship is very prestigious and can even provide full-ride scholarships to some colleges and future career opportunities. Early preparation is suggested as early preparation can lead to much more confidence on test day than only starting to study six months to a year before test day.
Also on how to prepare for the SAT during regular preparation time, approximately two years to six months before the SAT test, working with an SAT tutor is a smart choice. The SAT tutor can test you with practice SAT tests to determine your weaknesses. Then, the SAT tutor can use his or her experience to prepare lessons for you to gain an understanding of the needed concepts to answer the difficult questions correctly. Having someone to help you can save you a lot of time preparing.
Before test preparation is the last step and important to make sure there are no emergencies on test day. An SAT tutor can prepare lists for you to study the most important vocabulary words needed for the SAT as well as putting together math questions to eliminate any weaknesses. The six months before the test are highly important as you want to make sure you perform well in every section. Having a pre-test routine and knowing what to expect on test day can help make sure that you obtain a top score and gain entrance to the college of your choice (and, maybe even with a scholarship thumbs up icon).
