5 Mistakes Students Make When Preparing for the SAT

What Do The SAT, ACT & Mike Tyson Have In Common?

Mike Tyson was one of the most feared heavyweight prize fighters in history. Before his first loss, he had a record of 27 and 0 ; 24 of his wins were by knock-out, and most of those knockouts occurred in the first few rounds. Mike Tyson confessed recently that he should have been beaten much sooner because his skills had deteriorated dramatically; however, he continued to win because of his reputation. Essentially, his opponents thought he was much tougher than he was.

Many students struggle with the SAT or ACT because they misjudge the difficulty of the test they are dealing with. If you want to perform to the best of your abilities, then you must free yourself from the false and disempowering perspective that the test is impossibly tough and terrible. Really bright kids will struggle if they misperceive the nature of the test, and students of average ability will succeed if they perceive it properly. Buster Douglas, the fighter who beat Mike Tyson, was only a modest talent, but he truly believed he could win. You never want to underestimate your opponent, but overestimation can be just as big a mistake. I work very hard with each student on this idea. You must go into this experience with the right mindset: this test is easier than it looks, and I can do this!
