Practice SATs and PSATs

It is critical to use SATs and PSATs designed by the College Board so that you know you’re getting the most accurate measure of your current progress. All of the tests on this page are real SATs and PSATs. Accept no imitation!

How to Use These Tests: If you are using these tests in conjunction with my SAT Courses, you will find instructions in those courses on how to uses these tests properly.

Otherwise, complete the sections separately (timed) or complete an entire SAT in one sitting. Either way, make sure you spend plenty of time reviewing each question to make sure you understand what you did correctly and where you can improve.

    Thank you so much Sir! Your SAT prep is far better than expensive SAT-prep classes, books and tutors. I am currently taking SAT practice tests and I feel encouraged to reach for my dreams. Than you for the SAT foundations on Youtube. Please leave them up for longer so many can benefit from your brilliance.

    Thanks a ton for your quick reply… Actually,here in my city none of the book shops have the college board book.. ! So the only alternatives are the 2 books that I have bought and the practice material that you are suggesting so will these 2 things be enough for me to score at least a 2100 ?? I am really very stressed. ! What is the name of your channel on youtube ?

      I can’t tell you whether it will be “enough”, but it’s certainly a good start. To find my videos, click on “Critical Reading” in the Navbar above and then check out the “Critical Reading Bootcamp.” That will lead you to videos & to my channel.

    What do you think about the SAT Online Course? The thing is I ordered it about two months ago and I’m regretting since I see your videos a better way of learning. Should I leave away the lessons from the SAT Online Course and keep learning with your learning style? In case I do that, what benefits might I get from the Online Course?

      If you are referring to the College Board’s Online Course, the main benefit is ten REAL practice SATs. That’s worth the price alone if you can’t get tests elsewhere. But the instruction they offer is likely not worth it. The test makers aren’t too keen on telling you how to beat the test 🙂 If you haven’t already, check out the Enroll page to learn more about the Members Area of my site. There’s multiple series of comprehensive videos there that will help you.

    Sect 2. problems 3, 11, 13, 17 , 19 , 20
    Sect 6 problems 2, 5, 6, 8, 12, 14, 15, 16
    Thanks. Braxton had been getting at 29 raw scale after incorrects and omit on the past three Math scores.. this Time he got a 25 with just doing the two sections. 2 and 9, He will do the 3 section tomorrow. The good thing is he still has 16 more questions to add pts to his raw score. He used your advice and just omitted some of the Dif/lev 4 and 5’s on the first two sections. It seem to help, but he still wants to watch the video’s to see how to do them. Now if he can just manage to add about 10 pts to his raw score from the 3rd section, we will almost reached our goal.

      What do you usually score when you do practice Critical Reading sections? What is the breakdown between sentence completions and passage-based reading questions? We can continue this conversation by e-mail – reach me at rob@reasonprep.com

    Hi, Rob! I’m from Brazil, and I’ve watched your videos which I really like and admire! My english isn’t very good, but still I’m going to make SAT December 6. Well,going directly to the point, I came to ask you if the practice tests you give here to be downloaded are the same in the Official Sat Study Guide Book, which I have. Because if they’re the same it’s easier for me, and I’ll only get from you the answer of the questions.
    I made the practice test 1 of my book and put all my answer in college board’s tool, but I wasn’t really sure if it was right. For some reason I think that some of the answers there are wrong or they changed sections.
    Anyway, I wait for your answer! And thank you for such a amazing content you produce in here. 🙂

      These tests are different from those in the Blue Book, so that means you have 14 tests to practice! All of the tests on this site & in the Blue Book include answer keys, so you can use those to check your answers as well.

      Sure, there’s a lot of things that can be done to help. Obviously the main place to focus your attention is on the reading, and probably the passages, since you’ve got a lot of points there to grab. Have you downloaded my study guides & viewed the available videos?

      You say you’ve been practicing for a long time, but that could mean a lot of things. It’s important to practice in the right ways, especially for reading. I can’t give you really specific advice without knowing more about your situation, so feel free to e-mail me if you’d like to talk more.

    How many vocab words do you suggest we memorize for the critical reading part of the SAT?… I have done around 300 of what most sources claim to be the “most common”, but every time I do another practice exam… I always encounter tons of new vocab.

    Also, I noticed that different SAT prep “classes” or “sources” teach different methods to approach the critical reading section…. and since that’s where I struggle most, I don’t know which method to use. The two common methods were to 1.) skim the passage and read it quickly in a couple of minutes so that you at least have a good sense of what the passage is about and then go to the line specific questions and 2.) read just the italicized introduction and then go to line specific questions. I watched your video on this already… but after reading about the other approach… what do you think about it? Which one would you still do?

      I generally don’t advise students to cram hundreds or even thousands of words if they’re still in the 500-600 range in reading. For most students in that scoring range, they’re likely making way more mistakes in passages, so they should dedicate their time to getting better at passage-based reading to maximize their point gain. If you’re 600+ and you’re consistently getting 4+ sentence completions questions wrong, then it might be useful to start studying a ton of words. But you have already identified the problem – while there are plenty of word lists that organize the words by frequency, you’ll never find a list that’s both a) complete and b) useful for studying because the pool of available words is in the 1000s. Your best bet is to learn the most common words (you can check out my vocab list & focus on Levels 1-3) and then focus most of your efforts on the other parts of the test.

      As for reading strategy, I unequivocally advise students to NEVER read the passage (or even skim it) before going to the questions. It’s generally not a useful or efficient activity for a number of reasons. (Here’s one: the vast majority of the questions have nothing to do with the passage as a whole, so why would we spend a ton of time reading the entire passage first?) I’m not convinced that prep companies or tutors who advise reading the passages through before going to the questions fully understand how the reading section is constructed and the real problems most students have with reading.

    All your videos are so amazing!!! I have finally figured out the reason why I couldnt score anything more than 640 in CR. I have learnt the active reading all thanks to you!! I want to know what vocab words should I target to get a 750+in CR? Thanks in advance

    hi rob! i just got done printing off everything under the catergory “before you begin studying” excluding the 4 real practice SATs. What i was wondering is Where in the world are the practice sections for Math,Critical Reading, and Writing? The first step for each section is taking the practice section , so is there a link? I printed off the Progress tracker, but the practice section is my only difficulty,
    best regards

      Hi Gabe – you can take practice sections from any of the four tests you downloaded, the Official SAT Study Guide (Blue Book), or any other real SATs you might have. There are no separate practice sections, so you can just take any practice section from any real SAT test! For the math, for example, you could go to the 2005 SAT and do one of those math sections timed and enter your results in the Progress Tracker.

    College board came together with khan academy, are those videos a great source in your opinion?

      Sure, they’re solid. There aren’t too many videos available now, but perhaps he’ll add more in the future. The real value of the Khan Academy partnership is in the free practice questions. Remember, though, that when Khan partners with the College Board, he’s not going to challenge them or criticize their test in any way. So only tutors unaffiliated with the College Board (e.g. me!) will help students exploit the flaws & weaknesses of the new test.

    Hi Rob. I am a frustrated mom who son has taken the SATs twice. He scored 430 in the verbal, 470 in the math and 320 in the writing. Taking the SATs are like torture for him so I’m debating whether he should take it again or we could just attempt to get scholarships. His GPA IS 3.6. What would you recommend? Oh and he’s a senior so this is crunch time for us. Thank you in advance for your help.

      Well I’m not super familiar with your son’s background besides GPA & scores, but at this point it might not be worth it to invest time and energy into trying to improve his scores if he’s not 100% on board with the process. If he can get into his target colleges and/or get scholarships with his current scores & GPA, then it might be best to move on, especially if the last date he could take the test would be the December sitting. If the January test date is an option for him, and if increasing his SAT scores is necessary for admission/scholarships, then it might be necessary to suck it up & put in the time to try to improve the scores (and at his level he could theoretically improve quite rapidly with some targeted review). Feel free to contact me directly by email if you’d like to talk more!
