Practice Tests for SAT
Using SAT Practice Tests
In order to make full use of the different types of practice tests of SAT you must include both of the above mentioned types in your practice. Firstly, you must undertake preparation for the complete syllabus. These are most likely two ways in which you prepare for the SAT. Either you will prepare for one section at a time and then move to the other section, only after completely exhausting your resources for it. Else you would undertake preparation for all the sections side by side.
If you prepare for each section separately then you can start using the practice test of SAT much before. When you finish with the preparation of the first section you can take the sample test for that particular section and fix the concepts that you have learnt. Then you can move to the other sections. Finally, when you prepare for each of the three sections in such a way, you can make use of composite practice test. You should use the composite mock tests for some five to six days before the test. This will help you gain enough practice and you shall not fell anxious on the day of the exam.
In case you prepare for all the sections of the test side by side then there is little use that you can make of the practice test for individual sections. When you are done with revision of concepts you can practice from the composite mock test. In case you have enough time at hand after your revision is over you can make good use of the mock test for individual sections. Firstly you can take the sample test for individual sections for each section and then later on you can take the composite sample test for complete practice.
In either way you can make good use of sample test for SAT.
