It's only common sense to eat a good breakfast before taking the SAT, but what's the best food to eat during the test?* It'll be 6+ hours before the next meal.
With the next SAT test date right around the corner (October 5), I thought I'd devote this week to "test day advice."
Start with these blog posts:
- Be Ready for Curveballs
- Know Your Rights as Test Taker
- Cross Out Wrong Answers (and other SAT tips from Stacey Howe-Lott)
- Keep Your Own Time
Just got back from visiting my son at college for "Parents Weekend." I was surprised by the subtle yet distinct changes that took place over the course of one month. I asked him if he cares, now that he's away, that I've memorialized our SAT experience in a book. He said, "no."
A book about our SAT journey and everything I learned along the way, will be published by Harmony books in February 2014. The Perfect Score Project: Uncovering the Secrets of the SAT is available for pre-order now, and I'm in the midst of mapping out my speaking calendar for the coming months. Please click here for more information.
You can listen to an interview with a Chapel Hill high school guidance counselor about my experiences and the book here.
*Tomorrow I'll circle back and address the "best food(s) to eat during the test." In the meantime, check out PWNtheSAT's SAT test day tips too.
