-  Be sure to get a good night’s rest and eat breakfast prior to testing. A rested mind will help your student concentrate during testing.
-  Pace yourself. Do not spend too much time one question. If you do not know the answer, skip it, and come back to it.
-  Do not leave anything blank on the test. There is no penalty for wrong answers.
-  Use process of elimination. If you can eliminate an answer, you have a greater chance of answering correctly.
-  Practice. Practice. Practice. Please visit https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/practice and https://www.khanacademy.org for free online practice problems
