Sitting down and reading a book or plugging away at math problems can become mundane very quickly.
A student that is bored studying or not using very effective study methods for their individual needs may
give up easily. Here are four tools that will help your student efficiently prepare for the SAT.
1) Test Prep Apps
Children constantly use their phones and iPads. You can encourage them to use devices for studying.
There are a variety of test prep apps available ranging from free to $25.00. An article from New York
Times reviews some of the best apps available. You can allow your child screen time feeling confident
that they are using it wisely. Some of the apps track progress so that you can be sure your child is using
their phone to study.
2) Practice Testing
There is no better way to prepare for the exam than a practice test. You can find practice tests online,
available from the College Board. Mr. Test Prep uses practice testing as a significant part of their test prep
3) Flash Cards
Flash cards may sound old-fashioned, but they are a very effective method of memorization. Flash cards
can be carried easily and used during any moment of free time. The act of making the flashcards also
helps cement the facts in your child’s mind. The repetition flash cards offer is helpful for recalling facts
from memory, even when you are under the pressure of taking the exam.
4) Grammar Skills
Improving grammar skills will help your child on the SAT. Online tools can help your child learn
challenging grammar concepts and refine their grammar knowledge. Grammarbook.com is one site that
offers grammar hints and tips, as well as quizzes to test your child’s grammar knowledge.
These four tools can be effective ways to track your child’s improvement and meet their SAT score goals.
It’s possible that your child may even enjoy studying while using these tools.
