Study with time intervals

Instead of studying for a few hours straight and struggling to retain information, you should spend about 20 minutes studying and take a break to get a snack, drink water, or rest and recuperate for a couple minutes before getting back to work. Or you could spread out your time during the week and study five days a week for 30 minutes every day.

Get help from your teacher

Teachers have SAT practice tests and packets from past SATs. You can talk to your teachers in the different subjects, like math and English, and they will give you specific packets for that subject. This is a chance to talk through the packet with your teacher, who can explain how you could get the correct answer. Practicing and repetition help when it comes to test day.
