What does PSAT stand for? Preparing for the SATs! Well, not really (it stands for “Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test”), but it’s a good way to think of the PSATs, as they are kind of like a practice test for the SATs. But even though it’s “practice,” it’s still something you should take seriously. GoEnnounce has some tips on how to get ready for this important standardized test.
1. Talk to your guidance or college counselor. He or she can help you learn more about the test and get you the info you need to start preparing. They can also answer your questions about registering.
2. Get the prep book. There are plenty of PSAT prep books out there to give you some ideas of sample questions and test taking tips. Invest in a book and start flipping through.
3. Set up your own PSAT. Get a sample test and time yourself as if you were taking the actual PSAT test. Check your score and see where you need some improvement.
