Chalk Talk: Preparing for the SAT
Getting a good score on the SAT can help students receive more financial aid and get into schools or programs of their choice. With so much riding on a good testing performance, help your child prepare by suggesting a few easy tips. First, remind your child to answer the easy questions first. By completing questions they know, they build confidence in their abilities and reduce the chance of running out of time because of working too long on a difficult question. Second, when difficult questions arise, suggest to your child to eliminate one or two possibilities that they know are incorrect. If they must guess, their chances of guessing correctly are much better if they can eliminate potential options. Lastly, encourage your child to take SAT practice tests and join study sessions with friends. Familiarizing themselves with the structure of the test and the kinds of test questions will help them perform at their best.
