edited November 2012 in SAT Preparation
I didn't see a thread for this so I made one.

I feel like this will make discussing the test easier on Saturday morning ;)

So, how is preparation going? Any others from your school writing it?

    Gah, I'm panicky :P

    No one from my school's taking it and that makes me all the more worried! I don't have any moral support! :P
  • ecouter11ecouter11 Posts: 1,408Registered User Senior Member
    Don't worry, I'm sure you will do well!

    Yeah, one student took it from my school last month and did pretty well but it's fairly uncommon.

    My goal is to avoid dumb mistakes and to think clearly. Those issues are what bother me the most D:
