If you’re taking the SAT , you’re probably a little nervous about your score. Don’t be. Tutor.com’s SkillsCenter Resource Library has free test prep materials, and they’re available 24/7 if your school or local library offers our Learning Suite.
If the Learning Suite isn’t available in your area, you can also get free SAT resources from our website and work with a tutor anytime you need more help.
As you prepare for the exam, a good place to start is with a practice test. Here’s one from the College Board. You can print it out or take it online, and then see how you performed on each question type and subject category. When you’ve identified the areas where you need improvement, you can practice on those specific kinds of problems.
If the verbal section is giving you trouble, here are some useful practice exercises and tips for each question type:
- sentence completion
- identifying sentence errors
- improving sentences
- improving paragraphs
- passage-based reading
If you’re struggling with the math section, try these free videos from Salman Khan of Khan Academy. He took eight SAT math practice tests from the Official SAT Study Guide and solved every problem, step by step. His explanations are clear and concise, and you can always connect to one of our tutors to work on a similar problem or get more help if you don’t understand.
Finally, there’s the dreaded essay section. You can get ready by writing responses to these essay prompts from previous SAT administrations; our essay-writing tutors would be happy to check your work and help you improve your writing before test day.
We’d wish you good luck, but with a little preparation, you won’t need it.
