How does one figure out how to prepare for the new SAT to earn the highest possible scores for colleges to review and for yourself too? Socrato has some tips and other resources to best help you prepare for this year’s newly formatted SAT exams.

  • There are not a ton of study resources since the new SAT is still quite new.
  • Aside from studying vocabulary words, you should also practice advanced reading to test your ability to define words based on their context.
  • In the Critical Reading section, focus on passage based questions and ignore sentence-completion sentences.
  • Study and practice ACT science questions.
  • Study and practice LSAT logical reasoning questions to get an idea of how to handle data reasoning questions on the SAT.
  • When you are studying and practicing mock tests, keep a notebook handy to record your mistakes so you can focus on why you are making those mistakes, to better prepare yourself to get those correctly on the exams.
  • All together, you may want to consider studying and practicing an entire ACT exam as the new SATs will highly reflect the format of the ACT and there are plenty of ACT study resources already out there for you to explore.


  • College Board
  • Manage your college courses per semester with the iStudiez Lite.
  • Learn and practice your vocabulary every day with Vocabulary Builder.
