SAT preparation

I'm preparing for the SAT through Khan Academy. My prep is going really well and I needed some more free resources which can help spike my score. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Khan academy is best. now do only one thing. download PDFs of previous years SAT and try to solve them. I can say with guarantee that you will score 1550+

Best SAT College Prep Course Ever - (Totally worth the money if you are at 1450 and need to get to in the 1500s) 5-day trial, risk-free.

There is no guarantee that any of these alone will get a 1550 score so take that other respondent's comments with a grain of salt. I did all these things and still didn't get a 1550 so I switched to the ACT where I did better and only submitted an ACT score.

You will know within a short time if you are improving or stuck in the mud like I was.

Good luck.

If you're self studying, I recommend checking out some thrift stores, libraries, or book stores. Often times you can find SAT/ACT prep books or flash cards for free or much cheaper than bought new.
