How to Improve your SAT Reading Score

Since time is a critical component for the SAT Reading Exam, you should plan ahead and prepare by timing yourself as you take SAT Reading practice tests. Doing this will allow you to get an idea of how quickly you will need to read through the passages and respond to the questions. Keep in mind that some passages may take several minutes to read, especially as you need to read for comprehension.
