Steps to prepare an effective SAT study plan:

1How to study for the SAT?

The very first thing to do is to determine your target score and to know your target score you need to search on Google the school name you are willing to apply and the admission requirements to get into that particular school. By doing so, you will come to know what score you need to have to get into your dream school/university. Once you know how much you need to score then only you can take certain steps to achieve it.

2Make a study schedule

Making a study schedule for SAT, helps you to decide how much time you need to prepare for the SAT. Try to adopt a study schedule that is consistent; such as if you think you need a 40 hrs study and have 10 weeks to take the SAT then plan a study schedule of 4 hours a week for 10 weeks. Having a planned schedule helps you stay motivated to achieve your target score.

3Choose your study material

For SAT preparation, once you know when and how to study for the SAT exam than the next question is to know what to study. The next step is to get oriented to the overall structure and format of the test. Take a complete, timed practice test and figure out your strengths and weaknesses to ace the actual test. Choose your study material wisely, learn what you don’t know and review what you already know.

  1. Thanks for letting me know that you should make a study schedule when preparing for the SAT. I’m going to be taking the SAT soon, and I’m stressed about it because it will so greatly affect my college experience. I’ll definitely make a schedule for studying and maybe even use some tutoring services to help myself prepare.

  2. In France education has a clear goal: the system must always produce a group of well-educated people with a common culture, language, and skills that can serve the state. The French educational system has a very strong emphasis on content, culturally specific knowledge, scientific and mathematical knowledge. The system is designed to meet the needs of the state; individuality and originality are not considered worthwhile values

  3. SAT exam has a broad syllabus. How do you figure I can complete it all while doing my job side by side? It would be awesome if you could personally advise me on a SAT exam tailor made study schedule best suited for working professionals like me.
