Here is a helpful article from NewsOK:
Since these tests are critical to college admission it is important your teen prepare early. Fortunately, several websites provide free online test preparation materials and practice tools that help your teen get started. A good one to start with is the College Board website, www.collegeboard.org. The website offers official SAT questions, preparation materials and daily emails with a SAT “Question of the Day.” The website also advertises “it is the only place to take a full-length official SAT and get immediate scores.”
Both number2.com and sattutors.com are free websites that offer tutorials and practice sessions for the SAT and ACT. Number2.com requires users to set up a free account to access the information.
Both the SAT and ACT test emphasize the areas of reading and writing, so encourage your teen to do activities that strengthen these areas. Summer is the perfect time for teens to pick up a few books that interest them. The reading topics are not as important as is the habit of reading regularly.
Encourage your teen to write in a journal or create a memory book of his or her summer experience. If your teen spends a lot of time online, ask him or her to write a blog, read and comment thoughtfully about online articles, or create a free online memory book using websites such as glogster.com. The writing skills also will help students prepare for the essays required for college applications. Websites such as petersons.com have college search and application sections that can help students understand how to write these essays.
Increasing your teen’s vocabulary also is important for test preparation. Many of the answers on the test rely on the test-taker not only knowing the words, but also understanding how they are used in the questions. Again, fortunately, there are websites that offer free methods to increase your teen’s vocabulary. Vocabsushi.com and freevocabulary.com are just two of many sites that offer vocabulary words specifically for the SAT.
In addition to the free resources mentioned above, you can also come to C2 Education and schedule a diagnostic SAT or ACT examination. For more information, please call us at 604-269-3751 or visit our website at www.c2vancouver.com.
