The SAT is a common standardized test for high school students to take, and for most who agree to take it, the pressure to score well is high.  For some it is simply another means to show colleges their academic standings, while for others it is a gut wrenching experience.  Whatever the viewpoint, to ensure that each individual does the best of their capabilities, simple tips can be taken to make the testing process more successful.

Preparing the Night Before

Giselle Hernandez
Juniors Addam Damer, Irene Duran, Adriana Sanchez and Madison Lara are among students meeting after school to participate in the Z-prep program to better prepare for the SAT.

    Have the following ready:

  • Admission ticket
  • Photo ID
  • #2 pencils and eraser
  • Calculator
  • Get a good night’s rest and have a nutritious breakfast
  • Prep snacks and water to avoid getting hungry during the testing period

 

General Test Tips

  • Know the electronic device policy to ensure your test does not get terminated
  • Check what the requirements for the colleges you plan on applying to are
  • Know the ending time of the section you are on so you can keep pace of relatively how long you should spend on each question
  • Answer easy questions first
  • Don’t spend too much time on any one question
  • Any questions that bring confusion, make a quick, educated guess to not waste time, mark, and return to later, as your brain will still be thinking about them although you have moved on
  • Continuously check that you are placing your answer in the correct section and number on the answer sheet

 

Math

  • Study different types of problems to familiarize yourself with possible test material
  • If you do not know how to solve a problem, plug in the answer choices if possible until a true equation is made

 

English

  • Read the italicized passage introductions in the reading section, as they provide background information to create less confusion while reading the passage
  • Understand when to use the different forms of punctuation

 

Hopefully this advice will ease the stress on future SAT test takers!
