Are there any good alternatives to SAT practice tests for studying?

I've done a couple of SAT practice tests and I'm looking for other ways to study. I feel like I need to mix it up to keep improving. Any suggestions for alternative study methods that have worked for you?

I'm glad to see you're taking an active approach to your SAT preparation. In addition to practice tests, you might want to explore interactive learning platforms that can make studying a bit more engaging. For instance, many students benefit from using apps or online platforms that adapt to your learning level, offering practice questions and activities in a more game-like environment. Also, consider joining or forming a study group where you can tackle different problem sets together and discuss strategies. There is also the option of SAT prep books that can provide insights and different types of practice activities that aren't just practice exams. Lastly, don't underestimate the value of reading widely and diversely, as it can tremendously boost your reading comprehension and vocabulary skills, which are crucial for the SAT. Check out websites, newspapers, and books that challenge you - they can provide an indirect but meaningful boost to your performance. I hope you find these methods helpful as you continue to prepare.
