SAT Study Plan
Before you start any kind of SAT test prep, you should make a plan. Decide what exactly you're going to study, how you're going to study it, and when and where you're gonna do it. The key to a successful SAT study plan is to be specific and to actually stick to the plan.
Make Your SAT Study Plan Specific
It's not enough to just tell yourself that you're going to study for the SAT whenever you have free time. Inevitably you'll procrastinate and won't get as much done as you could have with a better study plan. Write down where, when, what, and how you are going to study for a week. Work SAT prep into your routine and make it a priority.
Here's a sample study schedule:
It might look like a lot with SAT prep five times a week, but on the weekdays it's only one hour a day. Instead of lounging around after school, study for the SAT. Carry some flash cards with you and study SAT vocabulary words while you're waiting for the bus. The benefit of a specific study plan is that you'll be able to use your time more wisely. Time is too valuable to waste.
Stick to the Plan
Once you have a plan, stick to it. For some it might be difficult at first, but once you work SAT prep into your routine, it'll feel natural to get an hour a day of SAT study time. Also, try to vary your study schedule from week to week so that you don't get bored.
