SAT Test Practice – 24 Student Tips

SAT Test Practice
I am one of the few who not cringed when SAT test prep was mandatory for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Candidates carry 12 useful tips with them to help them ace the test.

1. Study, study, study vocabulary!

– More than a decade ago, Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. He could have sold it to the newspapers. Instead he put it into the market as a demonstration of his technical skills to potential buyers.

– In that same period, Henry Ford introduced the assembly line car. He alone single-handedly revolutionized the world of production.

– Through the decades, the market has witnessed various combinations of concepts and methods, including the Zodiac and E-learning methods. The selection of working methods differ according to the market.

– Companies that manufacture products in the market recognize the importance of useful feedback from their clients. Therefore, they are receptive of suggestions and reactions from the professionals.

– SAT test prep should be prepared with the purpose of improving the overall performance of the test taker. A hint included in the whole SAT test environment is that practice is crucial to the test preparation. A hint is not a wish!

– You need to allot time for the preparation. The tips available provide a planner for the entire time set aside for the preparation.

– The overall performance of the test is dependent on the test taker. Performing well on the poetry questions is critical to clear this part.

– You should warm-up before the test. Find the area in which you are most comfortable and then practice for it, with a few transitions. You could select a slightly elevated area or move to a more comfortable position.

– Don’t try to limit options just because you are challenged with a few choices. Limit yourself to what’s available in the market.

– If there are too many options, move on to the next selection.

– Skip difficult questions. On average, 1/3 of the questions on any given section are already very difficult choices. Skipping will increase the time needed for the test.

– Double-check calculations. Make sure that you are able to solve for ‘x’ without unnecessary calculation.

– Keep in mind that since no calculators are allowed, you should get hold of as many normed tables and functions as possible.

– optimize lighting for viewing the last row of the paper. Use as many candles as possible.

– Do not worry about an attendance sheet. You won’t need it anyway.

– You should have a scrap sheet for each question. Since you can’t possibly guess for an answer, you will end-up marking one digit from the wrong side.

– Plan an overall timing. The most critical part of the test is the last five minutes. You should pace yourself.

– Have sound sleep before the test. It is very important to get a good night’s sleep as that part of your brain that works on memory, will come to the rescue to make sure that you can still recall your facts.

– Take mental notes during the test. Just crossing out or underlining words and phrases that you do not know, will help you recall.

– support your learning with visualization and repetition. Doing it this way, even the stumped parts, will help you fully comprehend the central points.

– evaluate your performance with training and practical examinations. With enough practice, you should be able to get a near correct score.
