Although the SAT tests are optional to get in to many colleges, high test scores can be an advantage when applying. Many college admissions specialists recommend high school students take the exams only if they expect to score well. Strong scores on the SAT and ACT exams will help you, but these colleges won’t hold it against you for not taking them.
Death of the SAT?
More and more colleges each year realize the SAT is not an effective measure of student intelligence. The list of schools no longer requiring the SAT grows by the year. Several colleges including UMass Lowell and Salem State University have made the main SAT and ACT tests optional.

How to Study #2
The best way to study is to maximize the amount of study days. For example if a student has a test in two weeks and they spread it out over that two week period, they are going to score a lot higher than if they tried to do it all the night before. Even if they try to study two or three days before, their scores will not be as high as if they used the entire two week period.
Our tutors help students learn the best methods of studying and improve test scores. When studying goes the wrong way, call Y3K Tutor In Your Home today!
How to Study #1
True or False: The longer you study in one sitting, the higher your score will be.
False. The key to studying is to study smart or more efficiently as opposed to studying longer. Many students do not know how to study efficiently and waste a lot of time. Successful students tend to figure out what the teacher has deemed most important and that is what they study. These students don’t study everything, just what is important. Students that tend to earn “C”, “D” and “F” grades try to study everything, which automatically means they probably haven’t spent enough time studying the important material.
