Why Prepare Ahead of Time? 

In short, preparing and taking a practice exam well in advance of a scheduled ACT or SAT date should be standard for all students looking to achieve their highest possible score. This allows students to set realistic study schedules, tackle their fears, build confidence and make sure their plan for how to approach the test is working, with enough time to make modifications as needed.
Choosing an SAT test date that gives you plenty of time to study and works well with your schedule is vital for quality prep. Typically, it's best to choose a date at least a few months ahead of time so you can easily tweak your schedule to make time for study sessions. If you choose a date that's very soon (i.e., less than a month before the test), you won't have as much time to study or rearrange your schedule.

In Person Versus Online Instruction

Which is best for you? It depends on what is most important when it comes to preparing for the SAT test. If you need one-on-one personalized attention in a focused environment with a set schedule, then in-person learning is likely your best choice. Or do you prefer to learn at your own pace with the flexibility to study anywhere, anytime on a laptop or mobile device? Then online instruction may be the ideal format for you. Consider your options and always remember, preparing ahead of time is the best way to earn your top score.
