PowerPoint Presentation:

Preparing for the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be so. You can easily prepare yourself for the SAT with just a little planning. So, here are five tips that you can use to get ready for the SAT.

SAT Tip #1: Read Books, Magazines and a Newspaper:

SAT Tip #1: Read Books, Magazines and a Newspaper "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." -Dr. Seuss One of the strongest habits a person can develop in pursuit of a higher SAT score is a reading habit. Successful people not only read continuously, they read to stretch, challenge and improve themselves. They read books, magazines and newspapers to stay informed on the latest information. It doesn't matter how good a reader you are, what matters is that you read. The more you read and the longer you read the better you will get at reading. So if you want a better SAT score, READ A LOT!

SAT Tip #2: Improve Your Vocabulary Everyday:

SAT Tip #2: Improve Your Vocabulary Everyday "Vocabulary enables us to interpret and to express. If you have a limited vocabulary, you will also have a limited vision and a limited future." -Jim Rohn One of the top things you must do, if you are serious about doing well on the SAT or the ACT, is improve your vocabulary. Start learning and using new words immediately. If you don't own a good dictionary buy one and use it. Learn a new word's spelling, pronunciation and most common meaning. If you invest time in improving your vocabulary you will: improve your intelligence become a better reader get a better job

SAT Tip #3: Start Writing:

SAT Tip #3: Start Writing "Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish." --John Jakes A great way to use your new found knowledge and vocabulary is to write. It doesn't matter what you write so long as you start writing. Usually, you should write about things you have an interest in so that you don't become bored and quit writing. But writing is very important to SAT success. If you aren't sure how to start writing, you might try getting a journal and writing something in it every day. Or you might enroll in a class that requires you to write essays or articles. The important thing is that your start writing, NOW!

SAT Tip #4: Start an Exercise Program:

SAT Tip #4: Start an Exercise Program "If it weren't for the fact that the TV set and the refrigerator are so far apart, some of us wouldn't get any exercise at all." -Joey Adams It is very important that you stay fit in order get the most from your SAT preparation time. If you fail to stay fit you have less energy which will result in sleepiness and a lack of energy. Making it very hard to study. But, a fit person has better circulation which results in more oxygen for the brain and more energy for your muscles. This in turn will result in you feeling awake, energized and ready to attack the tasks in front of you. A great way to start exercising is by walking for about thirty minutes every day. Walking is easy to do and it doesn't require any special equipment. Also, you could start some resistance training by doing push-ups and sit-ups, neither require equipment. It's not the equipment of the gym you use that is important, the important thing is that you do something.

SAT Tip #5: Attend Your Classes:

SAT Tip #5: Attend Your Classes "The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as we continue to live." - Mortimer J. Adler If you want to do well on your SAT attend your classes. Your teachers are there to help you obtain information and prepare for college, but they can't help you if you're not there. You need to regularly attend your classes, take notes and ask questions. Asking questions will be one of the most important skills you ever master. So, get yourself up and attend those classes.
