Attn new HS Juniors. It’s that time of year… Test Prep Season.
Good news … there is help :)
A Free Practice SAT (by the College Board) is available on the College Board site. mAke the grAde recommends that all students planning to take an upcoming SAT should take advantage of this ‘offer’.
There are a number of ways to prep for the SAT (and ACT) exams. One is to simply practice that test as much as possible. Practice makes perfect.
Practice also helps to demonstrate both areas of need (which you may choose to ameliorate with a tutor) and areas of strength (which is may be just fine with). Areas of need may include specifics in the 3 main sections of the SAT: Reading, Math and Writing, but may also expose needs in your timing and pacing for the questions and for the sections (remember the SAT (and ACT) is a timed exam!)

The SAT is administrated 8 times during the academic year: October, November, December, January, March, May and June. This year is a watershed year however as the “old” SAT will be administered up to and including January 2016 and then a “new” SAT will be administered starting in March 2016. mAke the grAde recommends taking the “old” SAT while is is still in play since it is a known commodity and there are still several unknowns concerning the ‘new’ SAT.
What do you think? What is your test calendar plan?
