For many sophomores, summer is the ideal time to prep for the SAT. In addition to study books, there are courses, both online and live, that students can take to increase their performance on the test.

“There are a lot of things that aren’t said in the book that need to be known. Different teachers have different information to give. It depends on your learning style as well,” junior Bria Woods said.

Tutoring is a valuable tool, but preparing for the SAT also requires motivation.

“I think the best element of preparation is just acceptance that this is the bridge that one has to cross to get from high school to college. Diligence and learning are the strategies that need to be applied when taking this exam,” Woods said.

Below are test prep options students might consider:
