Many high schools will hold practice tests for their students a few months in advance of SAT and PSAT dates. If you are a high school student, be sure to check with you school administrators to see what resources and practice tests are available to you for free.

Online versus In-Person Questions

Online SAT preparation questions can be great if you need flexibility in your practice. You can access the question lists and/or practice tests at any time and get immediate feedback on your results, often with a comparison of your performance with that of others taking the practice tests. Some sites have multiple practice tests as well, giving you several opportunities to practice with fresh questions. Keep in mind that some online resources do not replicate the testing environment, so you won't be participating in timed tests as part of your preparation.

While practice tests offered in-person through local organizations or schools aren't as flexible as the online resources, they often replicate the testing environment by offering timed tests complete with the scheduled breaks you'll get on the actual test day. Additionally, they give you an idea of what the real questions will look like on paper and/or computer.
