Did you know that you can practice SAT questions, review essay writing strategies and even take an entire practice test online?

Go to the College Board online site ( The SAT Prep Center includes numerous examples of actual test questions to familiarize you with the format, wording and difficulty levels of questions on the critical reasoning, math, and writing sections of the SAT. To get the most out of the sample questions be sure to read the explanations of the correct answers and the recommended approaches to the different types of questions. After you've done that you will be ready to take the free download of the SAT practice test.

By taking a full-length practice test you will have a good idea of what to expect on test day. Here are some pointers from to help you with the practice test and to get you ready for the actual testing day:
  • Answer easy questions first. The easier questions are usually at the start of the section, and the harder ones are at the end. The exception is in the critical reading section, where questions are ordered according to the logic and organization of each passage.

  • Make educated guesses. If you can rule out one or more answer choices for multiple-choice questions, you have a better chance of guessing the right answer.

  • Skip questions that you really can't answer. No points are deducted if an answer is left blank.

  • Limit your time on any one question. All questions are worth the same number of points. If you need a lot of time to answer a question, go on to the next one. Later, you may have time to return to the question you skipped.

  • Keep track of time. Don't spend too much time on any group of questions within a section.

  • Use your test booklet as scratch paper.

  • Mark the questions in your booklet that you skipped and want to return to.

  • Check your answer sheet to make sure you are answering the right question.

  • Make sure you use a No. 2 pencil. It is very important that you fill in the entire circle on the answer sheet darkly and completely. If you change your response, erase it as completely as possible.

All this will help you to feel, and be, more relaxed when you take the actual SAT.
