My Action Plan for College

Helping students and families to create a personalized action plan for college.

Test Preparation
For those students preparing for the SAT, The College Board's (authors of the test) website contains links to practice tests and related learning materials that would be of benefit.  You may integrate practice time into your study schedule, because that would represent an excellent learning foundation upon which to build.

The following pacing schedule is for students taking the August 29th SAT.  These ideas represent a consistent pacing plan, with an aim for test-prep every three days, taking a focused 60-90 minute block of time (taking each section, followed by scoring and reflection).  Please feel free to edit or adjust as needed. 
 

My opinion: starting with math initially tends to build better momentum at the outset.
