- I first took the test when it was still scored out of 2400, and I got an 1860. For reference, that's about a 1320 on the new SAT. It took me just three months to improve my score to a 2290, which, in today's SAT, would be a 1560.
- Take both a practice SAT and a practice ACT. Because the SAT and the ACT test very different skills and have very different formats, most people end up doing much better on one of the tests. And, basically every college accepts both, so why not give yourself an advantage from the start?
- After taking that first practice test, grab an empty notebook and flip to the first answer you got wrong. In that notebook, write down the question number, a paraphrased version of that question, and the answer you chose. Then write a 1-2 sentence explanation on why you chose that answer. Then, write down the correct answer (after consulting an answer key) and give another 1-2 sentence explanation on why you were wrong. Do this for every question on every practice test you take.
- If you are looking for a reliable, reasonably priced tutor to guide you through this process, I recommend Crimson Education. I know one of their tutors personally (he goes to Princeton as well), and the strategies he laid out for me were mind-blowing. Crimson tutoring is 100% online because they connect you to the highest quality tutors, no matter your location. Follow this link for more info: https://bit.ly/2IgHbrn
- If you're self-studying for the SAT like I did, one very useful resource is the College Confidential forum. There, you'll find many students going through the same process. I recommend making a GroupMe with some other members and going through SAT / ACT practice tests together so that you can correct each other's weaknesses and build on each other's strengths.
- Prep books are great, but only take practice tests that come from the source (for the SAT, College Board; for the ACT, ACT, Inc). Learn the tips in these books, and learn the material from them, but do not rely on their tests.
- Prep books I recommend are listed above in the description.
- The ideal timeline for standardized testing is to prepare over the summer after your sophomore year, and take the SAT or ACT at least twice during the first semester of your junior year. That way, you can get the test out of the way and focus on your junior year grades and extracurricular activities, which matter most for your college application.
- Don't look at anything standardized test related for a few days leading up to the exam; you should be feeling confident and relaxed walking into that test room. And remember, standardized test scores don't define you, but they certainly do improve your prospects of getting in to your dream school!
