Taking the SAT can be a nerve-wracking time for students that are in the process of applying for college. But having an SAT prep plan can make studying and taking the test much less stressful. Keep reading for some tips on how to feel more confident when taking the exam:

When Should You Take the SAT?

Before creating study schedules and doing practice tests, it's essential to decide when to take the SAT. Choosing a date depends on a few factors:
  • Are you taking the SAT several times?
  • When are the deadlines for your college applications?
  • How much time will you have to study?
Answering these questions will help you set a timeframe to decide when to take the SAT and how much time you need to devote to studying for it. That being said, a rule of thumb is scheduling your SAT three months in advance.

Create a Study Schedule

Once you know when you'll be taking the SAT, it's time to create a schedule. A schedule should be flexible enough to account for other school-related activities and deadlines you might have, but it should also focus on improving areas you find challenging. An excellent way to stay motivated is by setting goals for each week and keeping track of your progress.

Do Practice Tests

Lastly, taking practice tests is essential for studying for the SAT. One of the best strategies for taking standardized tests such as the SAT is knowing the structure they follow and being familiar with the types of questions you'll be required to answer. Doing practice tests is the best way to figure out what areas you need to spend more time studying.
