SAT prep is an abbreviated term for SAT preparation. The SAT is a standardized test, formerly called the Scholastic Aptitude Test and the Scholastic Assessment Test. The SAT is used by most colleges and universities in the United States to assist them in selecting incoming freshmen. The SAT is strictly administered by the College Board and offered several times each year.

Most students will take the SAT at least twice, and the first time will usually be sometime during their junior year in high school. SAT prep is helpful and necessary for anyone who intends to take the SAT. Many high school students have found that an SAT prep course will help them perform better on the SAT whether or not they are taking it for the first time, or if they have taken the test several times before. The SAT is made up of multiple choice questions including verbal and mathematics, and the entire exam lasts approximately four hours. In 2005, an essay writing section was added to the SAT, so SAT prep classes now offer suggestions and tips about how to write the essay.

While most students dread taking the SAT, it is a necessary evil and SAT prep can help immensely. SAT prep will help students prepare for the SAT in a variety of ways. First, an SAT prep course will encourage students to relax. Second, it will show them exactly what to expect on the exam. SAT prep gives students sample questions and shows them how questions are often worded to "trick" test takers, and students will have the opportunity to take one or more sample SAT exams.

An SAT prep course should be taken at least twelve weeks before the actual exam. Crash courses are available and can help minimally, but they often do more harm than good, by simply showing the student how much they do not know. SAT prep courses can be taken by individuals at home out of a book, in a classroom environment with an instructor, or online with an online instructor and discussion group. Countless books are available that provide many sample questions, suggestions, and facts about the exam.
