Using Official SAT Practice
College Board is committed to giving every student free access to the best test prep available. The test prep program we recommend to students is Official SAT Practice, delivered online through a partnership with Khan Academy. Official SAT Practice will diagnose your strengths and weaknesses, provide you with a customized program of study, and provide you with materials to practice with every day.
If you don’t already have one, sign up for a free Official SAT Practice account and link it to your College Board account..
- Go to khanacademy.org, and click Let’s Go.
- Create a Khan Academy account, and then link your Khan Academy and College Board accounts so Khan Academy can access your test scores. (If you don’t have a College Board account, you’ll be asked to create one.)
Tell Khan Academy when you’re taking the test so you can receive a personalized study plan.
From your SAT dashboard, find “Practice Schedule” and click edit to enter or change the date when you plan to take the SAT.
Let Khan Academy diagnose your strengths and weaknesses.
You can get a diagnosis in these ways:
- If you previously took one of the PSAT-related assessments or the SAT and connected your College Board account to your Khan Academy account, Khan Academy can use those scores as the basis of a personalized study plan.
- You can also take a full-length practice test on Khan Academy or a series of shorter diagnostic quizzes to get the same analysis and study plan.
Follow the personalized study recommendations.
Your SAT dashboard on Khan Academy will give you recommendations on exactly what to do every day (including how many minutes to spend). The dashboard will also provide practice questions based on what you need to study most and what’s most likely to appear on the test.
Take a full-length practice test.
You can access eight full-length practice tests from your Khan Academy dashboard so you have many chances to practice. Plan to take at least one full-length practice test.
Our research has demonstrated that taking a full-length practice test is one of the best ways you can prepare. It will also help Khan Academy pinpoint the areas you should work on so you can make the most of your time.
