SAT Tips

Tips for Taking the S.A.T.

  • Gather Materials- The night before the test make sure to have all materials that will be needed on test day including admission ticket, photo ID, #2 pencils, a calculator, and a healthy snack.
  • Locate the Test Center- Make sure to check out the location of the test center before the big day. On the big day, give yourself plenty of time so you can arrive early.
  • Don't Cram- The best thing to do the night before the SAT is to get a good night's rest. Don't stay up late trying to cram more information into your brain.
  • Eliminate and Guess - If you don't know an answer, don't leave the answer blank. It is better to eliminate answer choices that you know are wrong and then take your best guess from the remaining answer choices.
  • Look for wrong answers instead of right answers.
  • Plan your essay; outline main points
  • Make your essay at least two pages long
  • Always write an introduction and conclusion
  • Vary your language and style
  • Check out some materials we have at the Islip Library: SAT study books and DVDs.
SAT prep classes begin at the Library in April. Sign up begins on Saturday March 5!

The parking lot is now open. All visitors must be wearing a face mask upon entry into the building. Weather permitting, curbside pick-up of materials will continue on Monell Avenue for those patrons who prefer that service. We look forward to seeing you!
