A little bit of daily studying always beats last-minute cramming, doesn't it? Especially when studying for a high-stakes exam like the SAT®, it’s best to create a long-term plan for success. 

That will mean different things for different students, and as your teen approaches their junior and senior years of high school, it’s the perfect time to start strategizing.  

In addition to trying a few practice tests, working with a tutor - and regularly working on practice problems - a handy SAT® study app can come in handy. With bite-sized practice at their fingertips, SAT® prep gets easier to fit into a busy schedule. 

Helpful SAT® Study Apps

Of course, there’s no one miracle SAT® study method. Just like the rest of the college application puzzle, it’s best tackled in steps, rather than all at once. Since every learner is different, a diagnostic test is a great first step to identify areas of strength and topics that could use some practice.  

Talk with your rising senior or teen about a strategy that would work for them, and check out these apps as potential additions to their routine!
