With the spring SATs right around the corner, it is important to make sure you are fully prepared to take the test. This spring, the SATs are all online, which is going to be very different from them normally being on paper. The SATs are starting to become required again for most colleges since the pandemic has slowed down, so it is important to take the right steps to ensure that your SAT score will rise. Below is a list of several tips that you can use to boost your scores for the upcoming SATs.


TIP #1

  • Khan Academy is a great way to study for your SATs. If you go to the Khan Academy website, you can make a schedule to make sure that you will have all the content you need before you take your test. There are a variety of different questions for each section of the SAT.

TIP #2

  • The College Board has an SAT study book that they sell on websites like Amazon that also will provide you with many different questions in it. There are also several other study books, but the one by the College Board will have all content you need to know.

TIP #3

  • It is important to know what your strengths and weaknesses are before taking your first SAT. If you know your strengths and weaknesses, then you will know the different things that you need to focus on before taking the test.

TIP #4

  • Be sure to get a good night’s sleep before taking the SAT. It is a long test that will require you to have to think hard for a long period of time. Making sure you have a good breakfast, and adequate rest will help you stay focused for your test.

TIP #5

  • Whenever you are studying for your SAT, it is important to not try and look at all the content at once. This is for various reasons. If you look at it all at once you will most likely not remember everything you should for the SAT. It is important to spread out the content and take about 20 minutes a day to study.


Good luck with your SAT, and be sure to think about these tips when preparing for your upcoming test!
