Eleven days into the school year and it's time to start preparing (for many students) for a second round of SATs. Typically students take their first SATs in May or June of their junior year, and again in September or October of their senior year in order to better their score.
Personally, I was very happy with my score from the first time I took the SATs in June, so I won't be taking it again. I think the reason I did so well was because I studied. People wonder, how can you study for a test as big and long as the SATs?? Well, it sounds impossible if you are studying questions and answers, but you really want to pay more attention to the way questions are worded, the type of question, and what it is asking you to do.
I studied using Kaplan's 700 page SAT Prep book. The book gives pointers and instructions on how to answer questions and what to look for, and included four practice tests (which really made up most of the 700 pages).
When you take the SATs, don't forget or miss the deadlines for signing up and for payment, because you will be charged extra for signing up after a certain date. To sign up and find dates, times, locations, and prices for the test, go to www.collegeboard.com.
