Have you registered for the SAT yet? The next deadline is February 10, 2017 (eeek, that’s soon!) for the testing session held on March 11, 2017.
Registration is not the only thing you need to do to prep for the SAT. You need to study, review, and prepare for each section of the assessment. The Math and Reading sections of the SAT are required to generate a score report that will be sent to your prospective schools. However, this year the essay portion is optional and dependent upon college and university admission guidelines. Do the schools you want to apply to require the written essay? Top universities such as Yale, Harvard, Duke, Stanford, and The University of California System require applicants to submit a SAT written essay score. To eliminate unneeded stress and surprise make sure you know if your schools of interest require the written essay.
If you are in the pool of applicants that need to complete the essay being a good communicator is going to be a huge help on the writing segment. Writing is simply a way to communicate through the written word. If you can express yourself well in writing, by establishing a point with supporting arguments that are clear and concise, not only will you do well on the SAT, you will succeed in other areas of your life.
Let’s look into some ways you can improve your writing:
