Help Your Child Prepare for the SAT With These Tips

If your child is preparing to take the SAT soon, they'll have to do more than study to be fully prepared for the exam. To help your child reach their best score yet, use these simple but effective tips to prepare for the exam.

Get to Know the SAT's Sections

It's probably been a while since you took the SAT, so it's very likely that the test is no longer what you remember. Because of this, it's important that you and your child take the time to get to know the test, its different sections, and what is being tested in each section. Look for information about how much time is allotted per section, what types of questions are asked, and whether there are penalties for wrong answers. This type of information can help your child more at ease as they study and even during the exam.

Be Prepared for Your Test Day

Don't let your child's study efforts go to waste on their test day simply because they forgot a crucial item. There are a few items your child will need to have with them on their test day, so don't let them leave the house without them. Included in these items are a photo ID, their admission ticket, number 2 pencils, an eraser, and a calculator.

Learn Test Taking Strategies

On top of studying the topics covered on the exam, be sure your child is prepared with some test-taking strategies. Simple things like learning to eliminate obviously wrong answers on multiple choice questions can help them reach a higher score. Encourage your child to focus their time and attention on the questions they're comfortable answering and then use the remainder to work on the tougher ones. Go over finding context clues in passages, time management, and even relaxation exercises just in case they get stressed mid-exam.
