For SAT Math prep, no matter your strategy—whether you're doing self-study, taking a prep class, or working with a tutor—**you need to be working with real SAT Math practice materials.** The SAT Math test will be different from any other math test you've taken. You need to work with the real material to get used to the pacing and style of this unique test.

In this guide, I'll show you **where to find official SAT Math practice tests and questions,** and go over what materials to avoid.

This guide is fully updated for the digital SAT!

## Best SAT Math Practice Tests, Free and Official

**Digital Practice SATs**

**The closest you can get to taking the actual SAT is the free, full-length ****practice exams in Bluebook****, College Board’s online testing platform.** The six available practice tests provide you with a look at the interface, format, and scoring of the online test. These are the absolute best resource for SAT practice tests, so use them wisely!

In addition to full-length exams, Bluebook also offers previews of individual questions from the actual SAT. Even these are useful as you’re trying out the digital interface and learning what kinds of math problems and reading prompts to expect.

To access the practice exams, download the free Bluebook Exams app. You’ll want to **install the program on your laptop or tablet rather than on your phone so you can best approximate the experience of taking the digital SAT**.

If you do not have a device at home and need to take practice tests and the actual SAT on a tablet or laptop provided by your school, you may need to ask permission before downloading Bluebook to a campus device to complete practice tests. Seek out your school’s official test administrator if you need support.

### Paper Practice Tests for the SAT

Since 2024, most students will take the SAT online, but a few with testing accommodations can request to take a pencil and paper SAT. This version of the SAT will test the same content as the digital SAT, but it'll be analog, somewhat longer, and it won't have adaptive testing. To help students prepare for this version of the exam6, the College Board has released practice tests that match the new testing format.

Currently, the College Board has released six full-length practice tests for the paper version of the new SAT. While these won't give you the experience of taking the SAT online, the content is fully updated for what you'll see on the digital SAT's Math section.

## Official Math SAT Prep at Khan Academy

If you want a little extra prep (which you likely will since there aren't many official practice tests), **there are a bunch of official Math practice questions available as part of Khan Academy's free SAT prep.** To access them, you'll need to sign up for an account, but it's free and tracks your progress over time.

On Khan Academy, the SAT lessons and practice questions are divided by type, (e.g., solving quadratic equations, percentages, scatterplots, etc.), so **they're very helpful for more targeted studying.** There's a lot of math content, which can help you brush up on concepts you might have missed or forgotten.

Khan Academy’s Official Digital SAT Prep also offers diagnostic quizzes and a full-length test to prepare you for the online version of the test.

## Additional SAT Math Materials

In general, **I recommend against any SAT Math practice tests that were not written by the College Board** so they won't be realistic practice. You want to **use real practice materials** so that you can ensure you're taking tests that reflect the actual content and difficulty of the SAT. This is especially true now that the SAT has recently become digital. Because this is such a new change, most unofficial materials aren't updated for the content and format of the digital SAT.

If you take practice tests made by other companies, they might be more or less difficult and might not include all the content on the actual SAT Math section.

That said, **unofficial tests can still be great for practicing math skills—just not for practicing SAT-style questions.** SAT Math, more than any other section on the test, is based on knowledge, so having plenty of materials to practice the different math skills required is important (and poor or inaccurate formatting doesn't always matter as much).

## How to Use SAT Math Practice Tests Effectively: 4 Tips

Since you have a limited number of full-length SAT practice tests (with a total of 10 Math practice tests), each one is a precious commodity. You need to make sure you get the most out of each one. **Here are my top four tips to best use your SAT Math practice tests:**

### Tip 1: Take Full-Length Practice Tests Under Realistic Testing Conditions

**Take each full-length SAT practice test in one sitting** with accurate timing and realistic testing conditions. That means sitting for over two hours. Only allow yourself the prescribed time per section; the time allowed is listed at the beginning of each section. Use a watch to time yourself.

**You need to get used to the timing of the SAT and learn to pace yourself.** Don't give yourself any extra time on a section. If you do, you might be able to answer extra questions and therefore artificially inflate your score. Remember, you want these practice tests to be reliable indicators of your real SAT score, so **no cheating!**

*Use a watch, not a phone!*

### Tip 2: Review Your Practice

My second tip is to **review your practice tests!** When you finish, **score your practice test.** Then, look at the in-depth answer explanations for every question you got wrong. **Try to figure out where you went wrong. Do not skip this step!** If you do, you're not going to learn from your errors, and you'll continue making them.

**Spend roughly an hour reviewing your SAT practice tests** (or at least 15 minutes per section). While it might seem like a lot of study time wasted, I promise it's not. It's the most valuable time spent because it's the time where you'll learn from your mistakes.

If you don't have a lot of study time, **I recommend taking two SAT practice tests with detailed review,** and then at least four SAT Math practice tests with no review.

### Tip 3: Practice Skills Between Tests

Some students see the improvement they want by simply taking practice tests and familiarizing themselves with the pace and style of the SAT. However, **most students need to review math concepts that they forgot, never learned, or never quite mastered.**

In-between practice tests, **I highly recommend that you read our individual SAT Math content guides.** These guides address the specific content areas (i.e., Coordinate Geometry, Trigonometry, Systems of Equations, etc.) that you need to master to do well on SAT Math.

After taking your first practice test, **see whether you can figure out why you got those math questions wrong.** Did you skip a step? Did you misread the question? Or did you not know the content needed to solve a question?

If you didn't know how to solve a question, then you need to review that content!

### Tip 4: Get Help If You Need It

If you're not improving with each practice test, **look for extra help: consider supplementing the SAT practice tests with a tutor, class, book (such as the ones above) or program.** While some people might be able to learn from their mistakes on practice tests through self-study, most need outside help to identify their weaknesses and to help them improve.

Whatever prep you choose, know that **a good prep program should be personalized to your specific needs,** focusing on your area of weakness while not wasting your time covering topics you've already mastered.
