FREE SAT Practice!

I recently received an email that I thought some of you would find very interesting. As we all know, there is a new format for the SAT. I’m sure this has caused quite a bit of anxiety for students wondering how to prepare for this important test.
The Khan Academy has partnered with the College Board to offer free SAT practice so students can gain confidence and insight. This levels the playing field for all students to be able to prepare for the test free of charge.
Please read David Coleman's, the President and CEO of College Board, announcement below:
"What do Frederick Douglass, training a wolf, and a dinosaur named Nasutoceratops have in common?
More than 3.5 million students took the redesigned PSAT/NMSQT® for the first time on Oct. 14 and encountered those topics in reading passages. We were thrilled to hear that students were so engaged by these passages on a new assessment that is clearer, more focused, and linked to benefits like new scholarship opportunities and practice.
The PSAT/NMSQT should not be considered only a practice test, but the beginning of ongoing practice for all students. As we look ahead to students' receiving their scores in mid-December, please help us ensure that as many students as possible sign up at satpractice.org to take advantage of the free preparation we are providing in partnership with Khan Academy. Students will be able to submit their PSAT/NMSQT results and receive a personalized practice plan that takes into account how they answered each question and adapts to their skill level as they prepare for the SAT® and for college. Uniting the power of our membership behind this effort will make a tremendous difference for students."
I hope you find this to be a valuable resource and I encourage you to check it out. Studies show that those students who engage in test preparation perform better than those who do not.
Best wishes, ~Amy
