The SAT is an important part of your application to college. The SAT tests your college readiness in reading, writing, and math. In order to get a good score, it is necessary to practice for the test! Of course you won’t see the same questions that you practice with, but understanding how the questions are written and learning how to pace yourself (since each section is timed) will be a tremendous help.
The Suite of Assessments (SAT) is typically taken in the Spring of your junior year.
Khan Academy has the only official practice tests that are written by the College Board (administrators of the SAT). The practice tests are all FREE! The more time you spend practicing, the better score you will receive.

If you want to take the SAT again outside of school, you will have to register online for a specific date at one of their testing centers.
In order to register online, you need to log in to your College Board account. If you do not have one, you may create one. You will need some personal identifying information to create an account. You will be prompted to choose a testing date and location. You will also have to upload a photo of yourself following the directions for your admissions ticket. Print your admissions ticket! You will need this for test day.
Note: If you are home schooled, use the code 970000 when selecting your high school.
Each student is able to take the SAT for free once in school; however, some students may want to retake the SAT to improve their score. The cost to take the SAT is $75.
If you qualify for free or reduced lunch, you are eligible for a SAT fee waiver.
If you receive a fee waiver, you will get a card with a 12-digit code. Enter the code when you register for the SAT.
The fee waiver covers up to two SAT tests (including the late registration fee), application fee waivers for participating colleges, unlimited free score reports, and a free CSS profile.
Ask your guidance counselor for a fee waiver!
