The fact is, though, even after you’ve studied all you can for the SAT, you’re not guaranteed success. You might have heard stories of a classmate who crumbled under the pressure of studying for the test, or who slept right through his alarm on the morning of the test, or who ran out of energy and collapsed right on top of her desk during the test. It really could happen to anyone!

Our friends at Magoosh SAT put together an SAT lifehack infographic to make sure you safely avoid any test-day nightmares. The infographic includes study tools and tips you probably didn’t consider before but that are crucial to keeping you sane all the way up to your test date. So take some time to browse this list of SAT prep lifehacks and master these 18 unexpected tips you’ll need for a higher SAT score!

CollegeXpress has helped me find scholarships to apply for and look into more colleges. While there are many websites similar to CollegeXpress, every website is different, and I've found a lot of good insight on this website. Receiving emails from CollegeXpress about scholarships is extremely useful, and getting insight about colleges near, far, and anywhere in between helps me narrow down my choices to what I want, which is also super helpful. The articles are always really good reads, and I can't stress enough how helpful this website has been to me. Anything related to college is beneficial to me as a senior, and I have learned lots of useful things to help me on my college journey this year.
