Hi there! I understand that preparing for the SAT can be quite stressful, but don't worry - with a bit of planning and determination, you'll do great. When my child was preparing for their SAT, we tried a few different strategies and resources. Here are a few that worked well for them:

1. Official SAT Study Guide: This book is published by the College Board and contains practice tests and detailed explanations. It's a great resource to familiarize yourself with the test format and question types.

2. Khan Academy: They offer free online SAT prep, including personalized practice and video lessons. My child found it very helpful for understanding specific concepts.

3. Create a study schedule: Allocate time for each section of the test and make sure to stick to the schedule. This will help you stay organized and ensure you're covering all the material.

4. Practice, practice, practice: Take as many practice tests as you can to improve your timing and get comfortable with the test format.

Best of luck with your preparation!
