If you're looking for the best SAT prep in Columbia, start here. We've compiled a list of local prep courses for the SAT, the top colleges in the Columbia area, and popular SAT test centers in Maryland.

The SAT is offered seven times each year, on one Saturday in January, March, May, June, October, November, and December. There is no restriction on how many times you can take the test, but most students find that taking the test three or fewer times is best. Four times should be the very most you should take the test; the fewer test days you attend, the less work you have to do!

Avoid late-registration fees by signing up at least one month ahead of time. Students who set their test date well in advance tend to get the most out of their studying – it creates additional motivation to help you achieve your score.

The average student studying for the SAT in Columbia, MD spends about five weeks preparing for the exam. That's not possible for everyone, so there are always shorter study plans that can help you make the most out of the time you have. Once you've given some thought to your goals and available study time, schedule your SAT (and your prep) so that you have a clear target to work toward.
