    How do I study for the SATs?

    Hey,

    SATs is the American standardised testing system. I'm looking to go abroad to study there as an international student, but I have a few questions:

    1) Is it similar to the HSC?
    2) Will going by how my school teaches the HSC suffice?
    3) Or should I study for the SATs by buying difference textbooks on the side of my HSC work?

    Re: How do I study for the SATs?

    Would it be unusual for an adult sitting a SAT exam at a high school setting? I see that there are registered SAT centres (a mix of universities and high schools). One example of a high school centre in Sydney is The Scots College, a university setting at University of Canberra.

    I'd argue that SATs were closer to NAPLAN then the HSC.

    (2) No, the content doesn't really relate much. You'll need to do extra study on top.

    Kahn Academy may also have some SATs material for you to use to revise.

    Look online or you can purchase textbooks that contain practice SATs tests that I'd recommend that you practice on.

    just do 2 practice tests, but find the common areas that you got things wrong. Its not just split into reading/writing/maths, there are subsections like your use of words in context, command of evidence, algebra, use of commas etc.

    afterwards just refine and understand your errors

    it will be fine. Also, don't be afraid to resit if you dont get a reasonable score, 5-6 times is an okay amount of times to sit them
