We are in the midst of the SAT season and I know that many high school students have either taken the test already or are going to take it in the very near future. The SAT is no joke; the reason why many have been prepping for years. However, many of you are probably reading this because you have been procrastinating and are looking for an SAT cramming solution guide. FEAR NOT!! I am here to make your life easier!First and foremost, this will not guarantee you a 200 point boost but what I can do is offer some tips and tricks on how to deal with the SAT as the testing day approaches. Remember, my job is to make your life easier, not make you become a genius in 5 minutes.

If you are taking the SAT in a couple of weeks, then you will have plenty of time to get started. Yes, I know, some of your friends may have been studying and taking SAT prep courses since the summer, but you have to keep in mind that it is never too late to begin studying. I know that it is hard to begin, but you have to motivate yourself to get started before procrastination comes back to bite you in the butt.

If you have a couple of weeks to study, then do so as soon as possible. The earlier the better. If you do a few practice problems a day, by the time the actual test arrives, you will have accumulated a bunch of problems in your pocket. The goal is to review, and to refresh your mind about the topics of the SAT. If you haven’t done already, I highly recommend you go out and get yourself the blue College Board SAT book. Remember to practice, practice, and practice….now is better than never.

Now approaching the SAT deadline, you have to make sure that you are ready mentally. On the day prior to the SAT it is best to relax, and relieve your stress. Do not, I repeat DO NOT cram on the last day. You have to wake up early tomorrow and you do not want to fry your brain anymore. Trust me, it is best to rest and get enough sleep. Do not sleep more than you need to; sleep as much as your body needs. Sleep within your normal sleeping time. Also, you want to make sure that you have a nice healthy meal the night before and make sure that you do not overeat your breakfast. The last thing you want is to have a stomachache in the middle of the test.

Please keep in mind that if you are reading this on the day before the SAT and are desperately looking for a way to cram to elevate your score a couple hundred points, the only advice I have for you is to just relax and keep calm. Like I said earlier, do not cram on the last minute. It will do you no good. I promise you that. In fact you should probably be heading to bed right now. But yeah, all I have to say is good luck and I hope that you get your desired score!
