I am a junior and I've already taken 2 PSATs and I'll take the SAT later in the spring and I haven't really done much to study. I was wondering what I should be doing and how often I should study.

Start early and begin by taking a practice test. Then evaluate your strengths and weaknesses. This will help you pinpoint areas to work on. Khan Academy has free resources to practice, practice, practice. Make a study routine and STICK TO IT. I am homeschooled, so I just made time for an hour of studying each day, but if you attend school, a 1/2 hour a day may be more realistic or studying on the weekends. Take practice tests periodically. I have also heard great things about Method Learning (self-paced, online, lots of practice questions and tests). I began at a 1190. I took the SAT and got a 1320 and will take it again when it goes digital. Studying up on Desmos calculator- it can solve over 90% of the math! youtube.com/watch?v=QaC8A8i4nzU&list=WL&index=11 These are great videos I have personally benefited from (my practice score went up 100 points after watching all part 1 & 2). On the digital SAT, over 90% of the math can be solved with this calculator!

Hope this helps :)
