Some of these things may seem a bit silly but we bet you will find at least a few of them helpful and we never fail to hear from at least a few test takers who gravely harm themselves by overlooking at least one of these.
Get adequate rest the night before the exam.
Think of the SAT test as your big game/match. You would get adequate rest before this, right? Well, the SAT should be at least as important as your big game or match as unfair as that may seem.
Directions to the test center.
Unless you are positive where the test center is, do a test drive a day or two beforehand. Make a good note of where to park and how long it takes you to get there. You want to be as relaxed as possible on the test day and worries about where the test is being given will not help you relax and give your best performance.
Bring your admission ticket and a photo ID.
If you have not received your admission ticket within a week of the SAT, or should you lose your ticket call the College Board immediately at (609) 771 - 7600.
Give yourself plenty of time to get to the test center.
You don't need the stress of rushing at the last minute or worrying that you will be late. Again, driving to the test center a day or two beforehand will tell you how long the drive takes.
Dress in layers.
It's just not good camping advice, but it's good SAT advice too. (And therefore worth remembering after the exam is a distant memory!) The test centers are notorious for being too warm or too cold.
Bring a watch and a calculator.
It's not worth the investment to buy a fancy calculator just for this test as you won't use it much anyway. Bring whatever calculator you are comfortable using to the exam. In terms of a watch, just make sure it doesn't beep as proctors hate these types of watches and seem to enjoy confiscating them for the duration of the test.
Do NOT eat or drink too much immediately before or during the exam.
You want to be focused during the exam and you don't need bladder pains distracting you. 'Nuff said!
Out of these tips, we find that most test takers err by:
These mistakes are completely avoidable. Don't let any of them stand between you and the college or university of your dreams.
