If you are a high school junior, you are probably starting to think about standardized tests. For most students, the acronyms ACT or SAT will send shivers down their spines. One of the biggest misnomers about standardized test prep is that students need to spend tons of money on pricey tutors and classes in order to succeed. While tutors can be helpful, they are certainly not necessary. In fact, some of the best SAT Test Prep resources are free!
Khan Academy, through a partnership with the College Board (which is the creator of the SAT) has developed a free, online platform to help students prepare for the SAT. Through this collaboration, students can access:
- Free, OFFICIAL SAT Tests
- Thousands of practice questions to help you prep
- Test-taking strategies and tips
Best of all, when you import your SAT or PSAT scores to Khan Academy you will receive a personalized plan for prepping based on your strengths and weaknesses! If you haven’t taken the SAT or PSAT, you can take a free diagnostic test through Khan Academy.
If you just put the time into using the Khan Academy tools, you are very likely to see a pretty significant increase in your SAT score. Check out this recent student of 16,000 students who used Khan Academy’s SAT resources:
