Kaplan Test Prep is offering a FREE full-length practice test and preparation session for the PSAT

For many students, the PSAT represents the first chance to take a test similar to the SAT or ACT under official, timed conditions. As a result, PSAT scores can give students a good indication of how they might score on the SAT if they were to take the test with no additional practice or preparation.

This information tends to be particularly useful for students who take the PSAT during their sophomore year. Having baseline scores well in advance can help students and parents get a sense of the level of preparation needed for students to achieve the scores that will make them competitive candidates at the schools they want to attend.

The simple experience of taking one of these tests under timed conditions with a proctor and other students in the room is also invaluable preparation for the real test; even proctored tests offered by test-preparation companies don’t have the same feel as an official test administered in an official environment. In short, the PSAT gives the students a chance to experience real testing conditions, but without the same high stakes as the SAT or ACT. This way, they can be prepared for what to expect when they take those tests a few months later.
