SAT Device Requirements

Get detailed device requirements for the digital SAT.

Before you take the SAT Weekend, you'll need to know what device you'll be testing with as well as any device requirements or technical specifications prior to downloading the Bluebook™ testing application. (For in-school testing such as SAT School Day, your school will handle this for you.)

You can run Bluebook on a Windows laptop or tablet, a Mac laptop, an iPad, or a school-managed Chromebook. You can't run it on a mobile phone.

The Tech Readiness section below will help you understand other steps you need to take before test day.

Tech Readiness

Before test day, you'll need to download Bluebook to the device you're going to test with. Then 1–5 days before your test, you'll complete a quick exam setup. The application will confirm that your device meets all requirements, then it will download your test and generate your admission ticket, which you'll need to be admitted to the test center.

Note: You can print your admission ticket or email it to yourself, so you have it handy on test day.

If you don't have access to a device and cannot borrow one from your school or a family member, College Board may be able to lend you a device to use on test day.

How to Download Bluebook

If you're going to test with a personal device, you can download the Bluebook application now and start practicing.

If you have a school-managed device, and you're able to download applications, you can complete this step yourself. If you're unable to download applications, ask your school to install Bluebook for you.
