Keeping it 1600: Getting Ready for the SAT

SAT Tips for the October 10th SAT for seniors (and PSAT for juniors and sophomores and PPSAT for Freshmen because that’s also important)

Brianne Mia Arce, El Mo News

  1. Get a good night of sleep: 8-10 hours of sleep provides optimal benefits for teenagers. Remember that too much sleep harms your mental state just as much as not enough.
  2. Eat a good breakfast: A breakfast with options of eggs, greek yogurt, oatmeal, or coffee can be mix and matched to make a nutritious breakfast that makes a test taker more alert during a test.
  3. Practice some questions : Check Khan Academy’s website for some free CollegeBoard approved study questions. Also available is The Official SAT Study Guide, 2018 Edition which costs approximately $20 depending on where it’s bought.
  4. Math that will be expected: It’s Mostly Algebra, at varying levels of difficulty, with some elements of geometry. Some students will be taking the PSAT instead which has the same level math difficulty essentially, however the PPSAT is math expected of an eighth grader.
  5. Retaking is an option: Retakes are open to everyone that wants one. A different SAT will be offered on November 4th. Register by October 5 (Late registration by October 25th) to take the November test.
  6. Do NOT Stress: Remember that at the end of the day it is just a test. A student’s worth is not determined by their SAT score.
