SAT Practice tests

I know that mostly Bluebook SAT practice tests 4-6 are the most accurate, but for my studying plans, I need way more than 3 practice exams. Does anyone have any advice on what other practice tests I could do that are accurate to the real test, or is my only option to just keep repeating the 3 that are most like the real test? I've already taken 1-3 and they definitely inflated my score a bit compared to what I got on the actual exam.

If you really need another exam to do I would recommend the Princeton Review one just because I found the level of difficulty to be similar to the bluebook exams or even harder than some of them. So its definitely worth a shot- its also free which is even better

I wouldn't overuse the practice exams. Actually, you may not need more than 3 accurate ones. A good study plan involves periodically taking a practice test. Eg, if your test is in June, you would take a practice test every 2 weeks IF you are studying hard between and actually progressing/practicing weaknesses.

However, there are other ways to find accurate questions for practice. Use Collegeboard's question bank to find LOTS of accurate practice questions. They literally have 100s and you can filter it down to the categories you are struggling with.

Hope this helps and lmk if you have any questions!
