Prepare for the SAT:
Using Khan Academy - Take advantage of Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy. Students can sign up at any time. A study recently found that students who log 20 hours of practice through Khan Academy had an average of a 115-point increase from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT. Visit www.khanacademy.org/sat to practice this summer. This is a great option for students taking the SAT in August or October.
