Hey there! I can totally understand your eagerness to find the best resources for preparing for the SAT. My child went through the process not too long ago and found these resources quite helpful:

1. Khan Academy: They offer free online courses and practice tests tailored to the SAT, and they're an official partner of the College Board. It's a great place to start for both learning the material and practicing.

2. Official SAT Study Guide: This book, released by the College Board, provides you with real SAT tests and explanations of the answers. It's an essential resource to understand the format and questions you'll encounter on the real exam.

3. PrepScholar: This is a paid online course that offers personalized SAT prep programs, practice tests, and progress tracking. My child found it helpful in identifying their weaknesses and improving their score.

4. Local SAT prep courses and tutors: Sometimes, in-person classes and one-on-one tutoring can be very beneficial, especially if you're struggling with specific topics or need more personalized guidance.

Best of luck with your SAT prep! Remember to practice consistently and stay positive!
