All Members , Moderated


Welcome to sat_help! This is the only community on LiveJournal dedicated solely to SAT discussion, preparation, tips, assistance, and other related topics. The SAT Reasoning Test (SAT I), SAT Subject Tests (SAT II), and Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) can each be discussed here.

You can use this community to ask for help with a certain part of the test, get encouragement, share strategies, compare scores, recommend prep books (or sell your old ones), talk about the 2005 changes to the SATs, discuss the controversy around high-stakes standardized testing, post vocabulary lists, and anything else you'd like, as long as it's about the SATs. You can also post your scores if you'd like, though please be honest!

If you are looking for vocabulary lists or any other useful posts, please consult the Memories.


• No spamming or promoting your communities without permission. If you would like to do so, contact the maintainer.
• All large or blinking images (other than icons) behind cuts — no exceptions.
• Long LiveJournal polls (Paid Account necessary) should also go behind cuts.
• Stay on topic, please!

Discussions about other tests and programs, such as the ACT, AP, IB, CLEP, GED, and the like do not belong here. Please use the interest and/or community search tools to find a more appropriate community if that is what you are looking for.
