Taking a PSAT practice test is one of the most important parts of your preparation for the PSAT. In the weeks before the test, you should set aside about 3 hours to take a PSAT practice test. In addition, you’ll want 2-3 hours minimum to review your performance, and use answers and explanations to target your weaknesses before test day.
Here’s how you can take a free full-length practice test and get access to Kaplan’s expert answers and explanations as part of our free PSAT Prep Live study plan.
