Prep for a Poor Test Taker
My D is going into her Junior year and taking the SAT for the first time in August. She is not a good standardized test taker. Her PSAT scores were right at benchmark and we are in Indiana and just found out she failed her ISTEP. Both sections by 2 points. She has a 4.0 GPA but she is a very slow reader and struggles on timed tests. I now on the PSAT she didn't finish the reading part and on the ISTEP I don't know that she finished both sections either.
She does good with tutors so we are looking at getting her help to prepare for the SAT. Any suggestions for test prep for someone who is a slow reader?
Also, the one school she really is interested in doesn't super score so she will feel more pressure knowing that she has to do well on the entire test in one sitting.
