Practice For the PSAT the Best Way
Although the PSAT is often considered to be a practice run for the SAT, scoring high enough on the PSAT can qualify you for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Some of these scholarships include full college tuition. Because of the potential reward of scoring well on the PSAT, you want to be adequately prepared for this important exam. Using quality study materials is crucial. It is also helpful to verify your readiness for the test by taking PSAT practice tests. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on quality PSAT study materials, they are available for free, from Mometrix Academy. The links above give you access to practice test study guides that cover all the subjects included on the PSAT: Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. There are also links to free practice tests. The PSAT practice tests will assess your knowledge and indicate how prepared you are for the actual PSAT test. A practice test will also pinpoint which subject areas need further study and understanding. You may want to consider taking a PSAT practice test for the first time and designate next to each question which of the subsequent statements is true.
- I confidently knew the correct answer
- I chose the correct answer but was unsure of my choice
- I had no idea which option was the correct answer
Approaching the practice test in this way will help you determine strengths and weaknesses so that you can allocate your study time appropriately. The questions that you confidently answered correctly won’t require much study but you may want to briefly review this material anyway to verify that you have a thorough understanding of why that was the correct answer. The questions that you answered correctly but were not confident about will need a little more time and focus. Of course, the majority of your study time will be focused on the last set of questions of which you had no idea as to the correct answer. Don’t be disheartened about these questions! Mometrix has all you need to successfully prepare for the PSAT.
