There are ways to reduce the anxiety, however, and be well prepared when it’s time to take the test(s). We cover a range of options in this episode, from low or no budget to more expensive solutions.
One key tip for students: don’t cram!
Cramming is a bad idea. While you are doing it, it feels like you are retaining so much information. But within a week much of that information vanishes. The SAT and ACT aren’t tests you want to be scrambling and cramming for.
Instead, you should make sure to prep at least a few times a week and review what you’ve learned. You’ll find it is easier for you to learn when you are re-exposed to information you recently attempted to learn.
There is no need to do more than 2-3 hours total prep on a day; you’ll start to lose steam and effectiveness. You’ll also want to take a break in between all that studying to let the information sink in. So break up studying throughout the week, and break it up throughout the day. Prepare 6-8 weeks ahead of time and you’ll be well on your way![/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_raw_html]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjcxMDAlMjUlMjclMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjcxMDAlMjclMjBzcmMlM0QlMjclMkYlMkZ3d3cuaGlwY2FzdC5jb20lMkZwb2RjYXN0JTJGSHhoOVoxTnMlM0ZlbWJlZCUzRDElMjclMjBmcmFtZWJvcmRlciUzRCUyNzAlMjclMjBhbGxvd2Z1bGxzY3JlZW4lM0UlM0MlMkZpZnJhbWUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][mk_image src=”https://yourcollegeconcierge.com/wp-content/uploads/subscribe-itunes.png” image_size=”full” link=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/your-college-concierge/id1272011137″ target=”_blank”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][mk_image src=”https://yourcollegeconcierge.com/wp-content/uploads/google-play-button.png” image_size=”full” link=”https://player.fm/series/your-college-concierge” target=”_blank”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
