From late night studying to mood swingers, its that time towards the end of this semester where most seniors results depend on their futures, and what it will bring forth. Also known as the Scholastic Assessment Test, the SAT is a set of standardized college admission tests developed by the College Board, which considers the principal concepts of measuring mathematical and verbal reasoning, in specific subject areas. So sit back and consider these tips and recommendations on getting ready for the test:

🎓 Take Practice Tests
Become acquainted with as many prep tests you can take to get the feel of how the test goes thoroughly. Plus, it’s important to learn strategies dealing with test exhaustion and figuring out how to pace yourself. Pretty soon you can focus on your weakest areas, already knowing what to expect.

🎓 R E A D !
Besides the practice tests, you should also consider reading articles on unfamiliar subject matters before the test. As you read paragraphs, keep in mind that you should figure out the author’s argument. Not only will it be helpful to your reading comprehension, it’ll help you understand any words you don’t know as you read.

🎓 Memorize rules and formulas
Since the test itself contains some geometry problems, you should still memorize all formulas. Such as area, the Pythagorean Theorem, average formulas, special triangle rules, and exponent rules by heart. Plus it saves precious time.

🎓 Know when to guess on a question and when to skip it entirely.

🎓 Allow some time to relax and unwind before the test.
