When should students start preparing for the PSAT and SAT exam? 


The best time, to get the most advantage of an SAT prep course, is prior to the October PSAT exam which most students take in their junior year.  The junior year PSAT exam is also the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Exam (NMSQE) where the highest scoring students are named as National Merit Scholars and are often awarded substantial scholarship money by colleges. Since the PSAT is simply a shortened version of the SAT, students are simultaneously preparing for both exams.


Many students start preparing as early as freshman year, as colleges do not receive all of your SAT scores and do not know how many times students took the exam.


What is the difference between the PSAT and SAT exam? 


The PSAT is offered only in October and is administered, for the most part, on a Saturday in public schools and a Wednesday in private schools.  It is simply a shortened version of the SAT exam.  Most students take the PSAT as juniors, when the test also serves as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Exam.  Some students start taking the PSAT as sophomores, or even freshman, however these exams serve strictly as a practice run to show students how they would score if it were the real test.  


What is the best way to prepare for the PSAT and SAT exam?


The best way to prepare for the PSAT and SAT is to work through practice problems in the Official SAT Study Guide book, work with a top tutor to understand problems that you get wrong, and watch our video lessons on topics covered over and over again on the actual exam.
