Does anyone have any tips on the best ways to prepare for the SATs?
Answered

I'm a current sophomore and I haven't had the opportunity to take the PSATs because of COVID, so I don't really know what to expect. I'm mainly looking for the best ways to study or what areas to focus on.

KhanAcademy has a SAT prep section that is especially helpful. Taking as many practice tests possible is always good so you get the practice and feel of how the test will be like. The SAT asks pretty easy and basic questions in a "challenging" so familiarizing yourself will prepare you so you don't get surprised on test day. Some good SAT test prep books are out there if you want to focus on one specific section you are struggling with.

I hope this helps!

I would use official SAT or Princeton Review books for practice. As for content knowledge, Khan Academy is a good resource and there are plenty of Youtube videos out there as well.

I suggest spending 30 minutes every other day doing SAT practice on khan academy. don't practice for longer than 30 minutes because you will tire yourself out and lose motivation. once a month you should take a SAT practice test to track your practice. i suggest taking SAT practice lightly, for now, considering you're still a sophomore. once you enter 11th grade, you start to practice more vigorously.
