What should you do before taking the SAT’s?  Here is a brief list of things that you should consider doing before taking the SAT’s.

  • Take the PSAT – The PSAT will help you familiarize yourself with the types of questions that their will be on the test.
  • Arrive Early – Get to the testing station 30 minutes before the test.  If you are rushing into the testing center, your focus will be dimished.
  • SAT Testing Pre-Write – As mentioned in one of my earlier posts, http://thecatutoringsolution.com/246/a-10-minute-activity-that-can-improve-test-scores/, writing about your fears about taking the test for 10 minutes just prior to the test has been proven to improve test scores.
  • Bring Your Admission Ticket – You will need this to be able to take the test.
  • Bring a Photo ID – According to The College Board, acceptable forms of ID include a driver’s license with your photo, a school ID card, a valid passport, or a student ID form that has been prepared by your school on school stationery and includes a recognizable photo and the school seal, which overlaps the photo.
  • Several No. 2 Pencils – To mark your answers.
  • Several Soft Erasers – To erase mistakes.
  • An Acceptable Calculator – According to The College Board, you may NOT use any of the following:  a calculator that has a QWERTY keypad, pen-input, stylus, or touch-screen capability;  calculators that have wireless, Bluetooth, cellular, audio/video recording and playing, camera or any other cell phone-type feature;  calculators that make noise or “talk,” require an electrical outlet or use paper tape; calculators that can access the Internet.
  • A Watch – To keep track of time.
  • Some Food and Drink – Bring food and drink that can be easily stored under a desk or chair in the testing room so that they can be eaten during breaks.
