So, you’ve decided to take the SAT. At this point in your life you probably have a lot of important decisions looming in front of you. What college would I like to attend? What do I need to get in? What classes should I be taking? What’s a good GPA? Of course, you are also wondering about the SAT. This chapter provides an overview of the SAT as one of the data points considered for college entrance standards. It also provides the outline of the test, grading overview and some helpful hints to get you started. The most important first step is to know what to expect, so you can make the best-informed choices as you look forward to your exciting future. Congratulations on taking that first step.
 
What is the SAT 
The SAT (Standardized Aptitude Test) is one of the two primary tests which colleges use to gauge whether or not you might be ready for college. It is a test that reflects the things you should have learned in high school and relies on strategic questioning to actively represent those skills and knowledge that are essential as you enter the world of college. But what is it really? The SAT is a measure of how well you can take what you learned and apply it to a timed testing environment. It shows how well you take tests and how well you do in a stressful situation. It does not however, measure your intelligence. In fact, once you learn the tips and tricks of the test, one might argue it measures your testing ability more than what you know. 
If that’s what it is, why do colleges use it for a standard for admission? Colleges use this as a predictive analytic tool to try to figure out if you have the basic abilities required of a college freshman. They want to make sure you can comprehend reading at a level that is expected in your classes. Same with math: do you have a basic understanding of mathematical concepts so you can succeed not just in math class but in other required classes such as economics. Many colleges also want to see if you can write in a way that is conducive to the college classroom. Again, they are not testing whether or not you CAN write but whether or not you can follow instructions and apply what you read to create an essay that would be appropriate for the college classroom.  Finally, they are assessing your ability to take lengthy, timed tests. This testing situation mirrors what you might encounter in your college classes. They want to make sure, when they check that box for YES, they will be admitting someone with the tools to succeed. Colleges and universities must report their success rates with students and if all their students drop out, because they are not prepared to succeed, then the college itself cannot succeed. That is one reason why the admission process is so rigorous.
 
Preparing for the SAT 
Knowing all that, it is essential to understand the tips and tricks of this assessment. The SAT is a great vehicle to show what you know. It has recently been realigned with the current high school college readiness curriculum, so it does reflect what you have seen in your classroom. But like any other test, it requires preparation and planning to do your best. It is important to note that you can take the test more than once. It won’t count against you to try again, and in the end, you can choose the test you would like to send. Some schools superscore, which means you can combine the best sections into one final score. (You can read more about that in the “Words to Know” section). All these options are handy, especially if test taking isn’t one of your strengths, but the real goal should be to go into your first testing situation with a plan to succeed. 
Here are some tips to prepare for that first testing day:
•    Learn strategies, tips and tools
•    Practice, practice, practice. The more questions you see; the better you will do
•    Learn math and reading formulas
•    Practice the essay
•    Create a study group and learn from your friends
You also need to:
•    Understand the purpose of the test
•    Outline the standards and requirements of each section
•    Learn strategies and practices that will help you do your best on the test
•    And above all, know what to expect and develop a plan to succeed
On the day of the test here are some things to remember:
•    Get a good night’s sleep and relax. Remember it is not the end of the world if you don’t have your best testing day. You can always take the test again. 
•    Gather your testing supplies. Take several sharpened number 2 pencils, pencil you feel comfortable writing with, if you are taking the essay section, and your calculator (make sure it follows the guidelines set forth by the College Board).
•    It is always smart to take a snack with you for your breaks. This will help energize you and keep you going. 
•    Don’t forget your picture ID and your testing ticket. Make sure to double check all the requirements on the College Board site. They will give you a detailed account of all the documents you need to bring.

Words to Know
College Board: The College Board is the manager of the SAT. This organization provides great resources to better understand the application process, the meaning of your score, and the components of the test.
Standardized: Standardized means the same for all. Everyone taking the SAT will be tested on standardized material. There is no truth in the old myth that a red cover is a harder version, or if you take the test in June, it’s easier than if you take it in January. Whenever you take it, regardless of the color of your test, the content is the same.
ACT: This is a test similar to the SAT. When the SAT was redesigned, it became more aligned with the content of the ACT. Now the two tests are pretty similar. Both tests are equally important, and you should consult your colleges of choice to see which they prefer. 
Data Point: You might hear the SAT mentioned as a data point. This means it is just one measure, one point of data that is used to predict whether or not you will be a good fit for the college or university. Remember, they are using a predicative analysis formula to find the best fit for their programs and campus mission. You’ll notice that every institution rates data points differently so that those skills they value most will be the biggest data points to consider. 
Old SAT vs. New SAT: In 2016, the SAT made some major changes to its format, grading formula and essay. For the first year that these changes were in place, students could choose which format they would like to take. However, now there is just one SAT. When you sit for the exam, you can be assured that everyone else sitting for the exam that day is receiving a similar version of the test. 
Superscore: A Superscore is when after taking the SAT multiple times, you combine the best scores for each section to create the Superscore that you send to your school. For example, if you rocked the first math test but just bombed the reading, if you chose to take it again, and did great on the reading, your score could be composed of the math from the first test and the reading from the second. This sounds great, right? However, this is not a College Board thing. This is a school to school decision. You need to check with the schools you intend to apply to and see if they Superscore. If they do not, then you will use the total scores from each individual test. This is an important distinction.
