Complete SAT Practice Tests - Continued

Princeton Review Free SAT Practice Test: Registration necessary, 1 full SAT practice test. The test is not too hard to find, although the website is slightly difficult to navigate. The test is titled "New SAT Online Diagnostic," and do not take the "Obsolete Test" since they are identical. The test is simple to take, and you have the option of whether or not to use the timer. The test can be paused at any time. The site grades the test and gives analysis on specific subjects and topics. The only major downside is the lack of sample essays. Questions can be reviewed by going to a section and clicking on the question. For answer explanations, click the question-mark icon to the right. Princeton Review has a great practice test, but you have to pay for anything more.

Kaplan Free Online SAT Practice Test: Pretty long registration, full SAT test. The test is a PDF download, 54 pages and 1.6MB. You will have to decide whether to print the document or view the test on the computer and write down answers by hand. The questions look and feel like Collegeboard, so it's good practice. Once done, you can enter your scores online to grade the test ONLY if your account has been activated more than 24 - 48 hours. If not, you can download the answers which will take much more time to grade. Along with the answers come explanations, which are very detailed. Unique to Kaplan is an "essay grader" that asks you several questions about your essay and gives you an approximate score. I would not trust it too much, but I filled it out honestly and it predicted the same score I got on the real SAT, so it's not too bad. This is a great resource, especially if you register 2 days before you take the test, but the 2 day wait for online scoring and analysis is a serious drawback.

Peterson's Free Practice Test for the SAT: Registration required, 1 full SAT. This SAT is entirely online, and it includes a timer and pause features. The test takes under a minute to load, and has a simple interface. Since it displays questions individually, each question takes a second or two to display, which can be annoying when fighting the clock. After finishing the sections, the test is automatically graded, and you can go back and review the explanations for the questions you missed, again one at a time. You can view two sample essays and assign yourself a score. Peterson's free SAT is a good resource if you do not mind clicking through the test question by question.

SparkNotes: Mini SAT: Test Center: Short registration required. 1 mini-SAT and 1 full SAT. The mini-test is 30 questions,the full SAT includes an essay, and both are very easy to use. It is all online, and it incorporates a timer. Both can be paused at any time. Questions can be marked for review later or tagged if your answer is a guess. At the end, you can review wrong answers and read their explanations. The full SAT includes an in-depth analysis, which gives statistics on the test, like areas needing review or percentage of guesses that were correct. Your first full SAT should be free, but some links to it make you pay for it. You can use it free, just try a few times. Finally, SparkNotes offers a free online book here, and you do not have to register to read it. The tests are really incredible, but the website can be a little difficult to navigate without paying.

eNotes Free SAT Practice Test: Registration required, full SAT test. Registering this test is a little strange and takes a minute or two, but is fairly easy. The test opens in a new window and is timed. The test, however, has a few bugs. Or just use the Google Books version. Still, most of the eNotes test is error-free, and eNotes may resolve these issues. The test can be paused at any time, and there are very brief explanations for wrong answers. So, if you can stand the occasional error, eNotes has a good test.

Wikipedia Test: No registration, 1 full SAT test. This test doesn't quite match Wikipedia's high standards. It is fairly hard to read and lacks any sort of answer key. It's fair practice, but don't expect to learn much from it.
