Prepare for the PSAT/NMSQT—Introduction

You may have an opportunity to practice for the PSAT/NMSQT before testing as part of your school's digital readiness activities. The school where you're testing will register you and provide sign-in credentials for Bluebook during the readiness activities. You can access the following practice tools in the app:

Test Preview: To prepare for the PSAT/NMSQT, you'll have access to a test preview within Bluebook. This tool helps you:

  • Get familiar with functions in the app.
  • See the structure of the test.
  • Try a small sample of Reading and Writing and Math questions to familiarize yourself with the kinds of questions you'll encounter on test day and with how to properly enter your answers.
  • Try all the testing tools and experience how the digital tests work with any assistive technology you're approved to use.

Full-Length Adaptive Digital PSAT/NMSQT Practice Test: You can access a practice test in Bluebook. If your school does not run a full-length practice session during the readiness check, you can download Bluebook and sign in using the credentials provided by your school.

Taking a full-length practice test for the PSAT/NMSQT will let you experience digital testing and familiarize yourself with test content. If you'll be using a personal device for testing, you can also make sure your testing device supports the app and is ready to use for testing. The full-length practice test will also give you a score.

College Board provides downloadable versions of linear practice tests for students who will test with paper-based accommodations on test day. Because they are nonadaptive—please see description of what adaptive testing is—these linear tests are longer and require more questions to assess your knowledge and skills. To practice on paper, you'll need to print the linear practice test or ask your counselor to help you obtain the test.
