How to Prepare for the SAT
My Goals
My Project
It shows how well teenagers are are able to use the things they are learning in high school.
The SAT shows students what their academic strengths and weaknesses are.
The SAT helps predict how students will perform academically as first-year college students.
Some colleges require or recommend that students take the SAT. The SAT score will influence colleges' admission decisions.
Why Do We Take the SAT?
Last fall I took the PSAT which was very helpful in preparing me to take the SAT. However, it also made me realize just how much I needed to study. When it was time to decide what I wanted to do for j-term I realized that studying for the SAT would fit perfectly under academic growth. My goal was mainly to learn about and study for the SAT so that when I took it I would be better prepared. After spending a month doing just that, I feel that I've achieved that goal. I believe that I am reasonably well prepared to take the SAT this year.
Most people take the SAT first time during the spring of their junior year and a second time during the fall of their senior year, but what is the SAT? It is a 3 hour and 45 minute long test with three sections: reading, writing, and math. It contains approximately 170 questions.
What is the SAT?
Most colleges use SAT scores to see how well a person can remember and apply the skills he or she learned in high school. The scores are also a way in which colleges can compare students. While, SAT scores are not the only information colleges will use in their admission decisions, it is still a good idea to prepare for and do well on the SAT.
How Do Colleges Use the Scores?
Do NOT panic!
Do well in school
Take challenging courses
Use the practice tests
My project was the SAT. I looked up information on the SAT, tips for taking the SAT, and SAT practice questions. I also went to the library and got the three most recent SAT practice books to study. I wanted to know how the SAT worked, what it was, how to be prepared, and how to best navigate it.
