Are Full Practice Tests Dangerous?- Menlo Park ACT SAT test prep tutoring Services

At Mr. Test Prep, we cannot express often enough the importance of practice tests for preparing for and

performing well on the SAT or ACT. In fact, we even design our methodology around taking practice tests.

However, there can be a few instances when practice test cease to be beneficial.

Trouble Spots

Don’t let practice test lull you into complacency. Taking multiple practice tests, without stopping to study

your trouble areas won’t help you get better. You will have a better understanding of the test in general,

but you won’t improve your skills if you don’t spend focused study time on your most challenging material.

Understanding Mistakes

If you don’t go back and look at the practice exams in order to understand your mistakes, your time taking

practice test is not serving you. You need to work to understand why you got specific problems wrong and

what you need to do in the future to get similar questions right. Take the time to evaluate the whys of your

score, ask yourself:

• “Did I misunderstand the questions?”

• “Did I not know the appropriate material?”

• “Did I use the wrong strategy for finding an answer?”

Sometimes you will need to improve your test taking skills, while other times you will need to have a more

thorough understanding of the material.

Timing

Practice testing, especially taking full practice tests, requires a lot of time. If you use all of your time taking

practice tests you will not have adequate time to study in order to improve your skills. Plan out your

practice tests so that you can use them to evaluate your improvement. Space them out so that you can

study trouble spots and work to improve your score.

Improvement

Remember the ultimate goal of practice tests is to improve your score. This requires a thoughtful plan,

dedicated study time, and intimate knowledge of the exam. Practice tests will help you plan out your

studies and track progress, but they cannot entirely replace learning the necessary material. Make a plan

for your study that includes several practice tests, but isn’t overwhelmingly dominated by them. Find the

right balance between practicing and studying so that you feel confident about the format of the exam and

the material covered on the exam.
