Palo Verde High School juniors and seniors all know the fear and anxiety that cross their minds when they hear or even think about having to take the SAT and ACT.  With scholarships and college admissions that are highly competitive, it’s nerve wracking to try to achieve a really good score on the big tests. However, students can gain confidence and reduce test anxiety with great strategies and proper preparation.

“It’s very important to prepare for the tests because these are the tests that are not only for college admissions but are also for scholarships and class placements,” said Palo Verde college guidance counselor, Mrs.Dambro. “Also, no one really likes to take tests, so try to prepare for a test the first time and be done.There is no pass or fail, it’s all about doing your best and you’ll always do your best if you’re prepared.”

Speaking of preparation, students should try their best to start studying for the tests in advance by 2-3 months so that they can create an efficient routine that will enable them enough time to take full length practice tests every other weekend to see their abilities.

“Do a practice test, read the instructions, be familiar with the patterns in the test because often, they ask the same questions so just be familiar with the test so that it’s not scary,” explains Dambro.

Other test prep seminars will be coming to Palo Verde soon to help students prepare for the upcoming test dates:
