If you’re taking the SAT soon, you can start preparing today with questions from real SATs. After all, we believe all students who want to go to college should be able to prepare for the SAT at their own pace, at absolutely no cost.  

Download a real, full-length SAT practice test and time yourself taking it. When you score your test, be sure to mark any problems you got wrong or found challenging. Then, watch Sal work through those problems to see one way to approach them. It wouldn’t hurt to then retake the exam and become used to the feeling of getting every problem right! It also wouldn’t hurt to have the Rocky soundtrack (preferably “Training Montage” by Survivor) blasting in the background as you do so.

Want more practice? Check out our tutorials on Math , Reading, and Writing practice, where you can do hundreds of previously-unreleased problems from real SATs using our interactive exercises grouped by topic and difficulty level.

The best way to succeed on the SAT (and, honestly, everything in life) is by having really strong fundamentals. If you feel like you need to brush up here, check out the Algebra mission, which will help you master core concepts covered on the SAT, in college, and beyond at your own pace, with lots of fun points and badges along the way.  

If you’re not careful, you might find that you’re actually enjoying yourself.

If you’re taking the SAT in 2016 or later, we have even more exciting news for you. The College Board just announced that they’re redesigning the SAT for 2016, and we’re partnering with them to make free, world-class prep materials. By spring 2015, you’ll have access to state-of-the-art interactive learning tools designed by Khan Academy and College Board specifically for the redesigned SAT. Stay tuned. Eye of the tiger!
