10 Best Online SAT Prep Tips and Resources 

Have you checked your August 2019 SAT exam results? You will find that your score was lower and you only missed fewer questions.  Why it that so? This is due to normalizing the results of the August sitting so these values can be compared to past and future sittings of the exam.  There were lot of discussions in the social media that missing 1 question in Math had a score 770, or 2 questions gave a score of 750.  The curve goes against the student as many students get most of the answers correct. You can take another ACT or SAT exams again in October and November (Dates are below). Good luck for PSAT for underclassmen and Pre-ACT for sophomores!

ACT exam dates:

Inside the Test

Test day is here, and you’ve got everything you need: photo ID, pencils, calculator, snack—and the confidence that comes from knowing what to expect.

You’re On Your Way

One of our biggest goals in changing the SAT was to make sure it’s highly relevant to your future success. The new test is more focused on the skills and knowledge at the heart of education. It measures:

  • What you learn in high school
  • What you need to succeed in college

If you think the key to a high score is memorizing words and facts you’ll never use in the real world, think again. You don’t have to discover secret tricks or cram the night before.

The same habits and choices that lead to success in school will help you get ready for the SAT. The best way to prepare for the test is to:

  • Take challenging courses.
  • Do your homework.
  • Prepare for tests and quizzes.
  • Ask and answer lots of questions.

In short, take charge of your education and learn as much as you can.
