Hello! You're in the right place. The process of preparing for the SAT can seem overwhelming, but rest assured there are plenty of free resources available to help you prepare effectively without breaking the bank.

An excellent first step is to visit the College Board's website. As the organization that administers the SAT, they have a variety of official SAT practice tests available for free on their site. Since these tests are created by the test makers, they'll give you the most accurate idea of what to expect on test day.

Khan Academy is another reliable and free resource you can use to study for the SAT. They have partnered with College Board, and they offer online practice exercises tailored to your specific needs. These exercises cover all parts of the SAT, including Reading, Writing and Language, and Math.

Finally, if you prefer a more mobile option, the Bluebook™ app is a handy tool. You can use it to preview the digital SAT and take a full-length practice test on the go.

Keep in mind that taking practice exams isn't enough; it's equally, if not more, important to review your mistakes after each test. Analyzing your wrong answers can help you identify your weaknesses and plan future study sessions.

Remember, the goal while prepping is not just to improve your knowledge, but also to improve your test-taking strategies and time management skills. By mixing self-study with consistent practice you’ll be in a strong position to achieve your target SAT score.

Good luck in your preparation journey!
