Stay organized with our free SAT checklist.   Download your copy here.

In order to prepare for the SAT, you not only need to review key concepts, formulas, and test-taking strategies, but you also need to practice putting these skills to use in a real SAT test setting. The best way to do that is to go through practice questions and tests designed to mimic questions on the actual SAT test.

 

It’s no simple task creating SAT practice questions. After all, there are few different types of SAT questions, and they’re usually very carefully worded in order to trick you. Therefore, when you’re practicing for the SAT, you need to make sure that the questions are constructed exactly as the actual exam questions will be.

 

There are a few free online practice tests and resources that are guaranteed to give you the best and most accurate practice questions. This is our one-stop shop for all of your free SAT practice resources.

 

1. CollegeBoard’s Online Practice Exams

 

CollegeBoard has partnered with Khan Academy to provide paperless, online practice exams that are automatically scored at the end of the exam and keep you on track with section time limits.

 

These exams are perfect for anyone who is looking to practice time management and get real-time feedback on their exam. This the easiest way to simulate a real SAT testing situation without having to go through the hassle of timing yourself and grading your own exam at the end. You don’t have to make an account or pay any subscription for this service. It is completely free.

 

2. Paper Practice Exams

 

If taking an online practice exam isn’t your thing, or if you really want to take a paper exam since that’s how it’ll be on the actual test day, CollegeBoard also has some great SAT Practice Exams that can be downloaded and printed out for your convenience. There are 8 exams you can go through, all in the new SAT format (on a 1600 scale).  

 

It’ll be up to you to print out the exams, time yourself on each section, and score the exam afterward. However, CollegeBoard has provided all of the rubrics, instructions, and feedback so that you can use these exams to adequately study for the SAT.

3. CollegeBoard’s Sample Questions

 

CollegeBoard also releases some sample SAT questions from every SAT section on their own website, not in the form of a practice exam. These stand-alone questions are presented in a quiz-format. You will be presented with the question online and will have to choose an answer. There is no time limit imposed. Only after you have answered that question will you be told whether you were right or wrong and why. Then, after releasing the feedback on that question, they will move on to the next question.

 

The SAT sample questions cover Math, Reading, Writing and Language, and Essay sections. If you just want to get used to the kinds of questions that are asked on the SAT without being stressed about taking an entire practice exam, this is perfect for you.
