    Yes, you should still prepare. My daughter had extra time on the ACT and spent two months preparing with a private tutor. The idea is by giving you extra time, you are on the same playing field as students who don't qualify for extra time. They still need to prepare (despite not needing extra time), so should you.

    If you haven't started studying now, you are really going to be rushing. Yes, you have extra time becasue you NEED that time. It doesn't mean you will be able to get the answers more easily than any one else. I suggest you look at Khan academy videos on SAT prep, which are free, or prep scholar blog. Google it. They have very helpful study guides for each section of the test. Get an official SAT study guide and do a couple of parctice tests. The answers are provided so you can check how you did after you finish.

    Given that you have left yourself not a lot of time to study, it may be wise to postpone the test if you can. More study time will result in a better score.

    Do you mean August 26? August 27 is a Sunday.
