The SAT Practice Test


1.  We will email you an SAT Math, a Reading and a Writing test section. Download and print all of these files. Please make sure your student doesn't look at the correct answers either while taking the test or afterwards. After your student finishes the test, you can use the answer key to mark which questions were missed.  

PARENTS SHOULD NOT MARK IN THE CORRECT ANSWERS on the answer sheet. If we ask your student to retry those missed questions, we don’t want the right answer to be evident.


2.  On a separate sheet of paper, answer the following questions:

     a.  Reading (Section 1) - questions # 20 - 37  in 23 minutes

     b.  Writing (Section 2) - questions # 23 - 44 in 18 minutes

     c.  Math (Section 4) - questions # 1 - 31 in 45 minutes


3.  If your student does not finish any section in the allotted time, he or she should mark where the time ran out and complete the remaining questions untimed.  Students can take the sections separately but must complete each individual section in one sitting.  


If a student has extra time for the SAT, please adjust the time accordingly - e.g. for students with “time and a half,” multiply the listed time by 1.5.
