We've already established that preparing for the SAT is the key to a successful SAT test day..and score! So, your SAT tutor will give you some real-life tips for the questions and test portion, of course, but also some tips for test day.
Tips to Ace SAT Test: Make sure you get a good night's sleep the night before, that can be hard because you'll probably be nervous, but try to not spend the night before studying too much and definitely not cramming. The goal is to already have spent months studying and have the information stored in your brain. The night before/morning of SAT test day are yours to relax. So, start with a good night's sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. Eat a good, healthy breakfast or maybe even treat yourself to your favorite breakfast, as long as it's not too heavy-- you don't want to be sleepy during the test! If you drink coffee, have a cup...but if you're not a coffee drinker, do not start now!! You don't want to try anything new on test day! Now that you're rested and fueled, it's time to head to the test site. Get there early so you can continue the relaxed, calm approach. Bring everything you need and set it out on your desk, now you are ready to tackle the SAT!
Tips to Successfully Study for the SAT:
Use Online Resources: An online SAT tutor can be beneficial in your preparation. They will walk you through the subjects and help you with any areas you're struggling. Online resources can also provide readings, interactive activities and explanations in addition to worksheets and practice tests.
Be the Teacher: It's a good idea to find a study buddy and bounce difficulties off one another. Take turns playing the teacher or the tutor. Teach your study buddy what you know about the subject and how to solve the problems. If you have nobody to teach to, it's time to use your imagination! Teach to the wall or a teddy bear, anything that will listen!! It's the act of teaching and explaining that will really help the subject stick.
Write it Down: Write down equations, definitions, formulas..whatever you're studying! The act of writing down what you're learning helps the information stick in your brain.
Take Breaks!!: Don't. Cram. By not cramming you'll allow yourself a relaxed SAT prep schedule. This way you can plan study breaks, time to walk away from the material, grab something to drink or a snack and allow the information to process. It's important to create a stick to your study schedule though, so don't let the breaks get out of hand!
When you meet with your SAT tutor, they will provide additional study tips for you and ways to ace the day!
