#2: GET ORIENTED TO THE OVERALL STRUCTURE AND FORMAT OF THE SAT

 

Next, you’ll want to become oriented to the overall structure of the SAT test. The SAT exam is out of 1600 points distributed into two blocks: 800 points for the Math section, and 800 points for Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (made up of a Reading Test and a Writing test).

 

The lowest possible score for the SAT is 400 points (200 on each section).

#7: REVIEW IMPORTANT CONTENT

 

Once you have a goal and schedule, it’s time to start reviewing content. Target the areas you know you’re weak in, but don’t neglect anything. So if you’re weak in Math,

 

it’s fine to spend more time on it, but you should still spend a little time preparing for the SAT Reading section even if it’s your best subject.

 

 

#8: LEARN TEST STRATEGIES

 

To do well on the SAT exam, you’ll need to have an SAT study plan and proper strategies. This preparation plan tells you when what and how to prepare for the SAT exam.

 

 

#9: PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE

 

Practicing for the SAT has two facets. The first facet is the targeted practice of the skills you need to hone for the test.

 

You can do this by practicing specific question types, topics, or entire sections that you need more work on. When you get any questions wrong, make sure to really work through them to understand where you went astray.

 

 

#10: BE READY FOR TEST DAY!

 

Finally, the day has come for the SAT Test. Be ready for this. Take proper sleep and healthy breakfast and pack your bags with calculator and pencil.
