Full Word-for-Word Transcription
Hey everyone. Alexis Avila, founder of Prepped and Polished LLC, here in
Boston, Massachusetts. Now there’s a lot of information on the SAT, and
some of it will cost you money. But these six sites, they will not. And
these are my favorite right now.
Number one is Khan Academy. If you want to practice your SAT math, go to
these YouTube videos. The instructor does a great job explaining all the
math problems you’ll find on the old version of the official SAT College
Board Study Guide.
Site number two that I really enjoy is PWN the SAT. He’s a tutor out of New
York who really knows his SATs, and especially the math. You’ll enjoy his
math problems and challenges and you can print out some PDFs.
The third site I highly recommend is Erica Meltzer’s Ultimate Verbal Blog,
and you can increase your critical reading and writing score, just by
reading her blogs alone, and she has a ton of advice to help better your
critical reading and writing scores for the SAT test.
And the fourth site is the College Boards official site. They have a free
practice test on it, and they have some practice problems for each
component of the SAT test, and you can subscribe to the SAT Question of the
Day that gets sent directly to your email address on a daily basis with a
very challenging SAT problem.
The fifth site I highly recommend is for vocabulary boosting, is Quizlet,
which is the world’s most popular online flashcard site. If you search, you
can find some big stacks of SAT vocabulary to practice from, and they have
games and quizzes so that you can test yourself to see if you’re learning
some of that high frequency vocabulary.
The sixth site I highly recommend is another vocabulary website. My
students really enjoy this one. It’s called FreeRice.com and there are 60
vocabulary levels. So if you get a question or about three questions in a
row right, you increase a level, and each time you get a question correct,
you actually donate 10 grains of rice to charity. So you feel good while
you’re studying SAT vocabulary. So that’s fantastic.
So check out those six sites. I think you’ll really enjoy them. They’re all
free to help boost your SAT grade. And I’m also obviously partial to my
video blogs on my websites, so you can check those out,
So good luck on your SAT, and I will talk to you soon.
Which one of these six websites would you consider using? Suggest any others?
