How to prepare for the SAT®
Set goals and develop a plan
First, make sure you know which version of the exam your child will take. Beginning in March 2016,
the College Board will release a new version of the SAT®. Then, set a baseline with a practice test.
Taking a practice test is the best way to to determine how much preparation is needed to achieve your
goal score. Not sure what score you should be aiming for? A Revolution Prep team member can help you set the right
goals to make sure your child is on track for success. Call a Revolution Prep team member today or download a free SAT®
Reinforce critical academic skills
Preparing for the SAT® is more than just practice tests and tricks and traps. A Professional Tutor
will work to identify and address any knowledge gaps in academic skills while working on SAT® practice.
Understanding main ideas in a reading passage, working with triangles, and understanding subject-verb
agreement are just a sample of the topics covered on the exam. Ensuring your child has a strong grasp
of the fundamental concepts will not only increase their SAT® score, but increase their grades and confidence
in school. SAT® scores can count for 25 to 35% of a college admissions decision, but GPA accounts for up to 50%.
Learn the SAT®’s tricks and traps
The SAT®, at nearly four hours, is the longest test most students have taken at this point in
their life. Learning how to alleviate test anxiety and focus through the entire test is an important
part of preparation. Students will also need to learn to identify common tricks and traps in SAT® questions.
Many questions on the SAT® are asked in a less-than-straightforward way, which means that that students must
learn to identify the core concept being assessed in a given question.
I’m not sure in which way it would be possible to show my appreciation for how successful SAT® tutoring with you was. In my opinion, 5 stars doesn’t come to close to the amount of stuff I learned in just the short period of time I spent working with you. Thank you for everything.
