I told you last week that you should take the SAT in the spring of your junior year. So when is the best time to prepare for the SAT?
The summer before junior year is the best time because you are likely to have more time to spend on the preparation than during the school year. Yes, I know you are busy and also want to have some time to relax in the summer. No problem. You don’t need to devote 40 hours a week to SAT prep but you do need to spend some time.
However, don’t prepare during the summer and then forget about the SAT until you take the test. Continue practicing through fall of junior year so that you are at your best when you actually take the SAT.
Next week I will tell you the best way to prepare for the SAT.
