Your Insider Guide to the SAT

[not sponsored or endorsed by the College Board]

SAT Tutor – Prep Information for the SAT is an independent website that provides you with all of the most important information on the SAT, from test content to test administration. Our site will help you understand the exam, get signed up, and prepare for great scores. The SAT was developed by the College Board and is administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS), both of which are non-profit education groups. The SAT is accepted by all postsecondary institutions in the United States for undergraduate admission, and the majority of American universities require either the SAT or the ACT (though there are a number of schools that are test-optional). Some tertiary institutions in other countries will require or consider SAT scores if the applicant went to high school in the United States or its territories.

Finding your way around the website is a breeze – just click on the links to the left of the page. You can peruse general SAT info on the "About" page, and to learn how to sign up, click on "Registration." Detailed summaries of the individual parts of the SAT are included on the "Sections" page, and to review your options for SAT study, see "Preparation." If you have a specific question, you can email us via the "Contact" link, although we suggest that you view the "FAQ" page first.

About 1.7 million high school students take the SAT each year. The test is offered seven times annually in the United States and four times per year internationally. The website of the College Board lists available dates for the current academic year and testing locations around the world. Students can also use the College Board website to register for the exam and acquire valuable preparation materials in a variety of formats.
