With SAT School Day around the corner, juniors begin preparing for standardized college admissions test.

The school district provides the day to test juniors on March 6, but students can take steps to maximize their scores.

College Board provides links to show what to expect, as well as resources with tips for the reading, writing, math and essay sections. College Board also offers checklist to see what to bring (and what not to bring).

The Bulverde Spring Branch Library offers books to check out and pretest with, showing the style and format of the test. The catalog can be accessed here. Being familiar with the test could be one of the most beneficial steps students can take.

Getting ready for the SAT is more than just practicing and coming to take the test.  After familiarizing themselves with the content, they can pinpoint weaknesses and know how to tackle them. Broadening your vocabulary can help, along with taking practice tests and going to tutoring.

Juniors are encouraged to identify four colleges or universities to receive their free score reports. Colleges look at the scores along with transcripts and class ranks.

Test Prep Seminars will conduct a bootcamp from 8:30 to 2:30 on campus March 2 from 8:30 to 2:30. This program is designed to raise students test scores, maximize potential and minimize nervousness. Each student who participates will receive a Plan of Action individualized for them. Students should bring a sack lunch, pens, No. 2 pencils, highlighter and a calculator. This intensive is held in the Rotunda, and is offered for only $85. Register for this opportunity here, using the code “smithsonss”. Cost is $85.
