Follow the steps below to stay organized and ready for the SAT® exam.
Get organized for the next day
Pack your SAT® ticket, graphing calculator, wrist watch, Identification card, pencils, erasers, and formula sheets ready to go. Being organized and ready prevents you from panicking and forgetting important documents.
Review notes & SAT® formulas
Check to make sure you have memorized your formulas. Ensure that you know when and how to use each formula. If possible, maximize your learning by reviewing SAT® formulas with friends. You can learn from each other.
Take breaks. Remember that you want your brain ready for the test, but not overworked. If you are feeling anxious; exercise, meditate, and/or chat with friends.
Make sure to get protein into your well balanced meal to boost mental clarity and concentration. Drink lots of fluids to stay hydrated. Get snacks ready for the next day. You can eat during exam breaks.
Set your alarm
Set your alarm for the next day. Consider drive time to the testing center. Plan to get there at least 30 minutes early to be safe.
Sleep early to give your brain a lot of rest. An exhausted brain struggles to comprehend information.
