Keeping track of my common mistakes/errors on the multiple choice helped me succeed most as I could reflect on these mistakes and try to correct them in future examinations. My primary piece of advice would be to keep retaking practice exams, as that will not only help grow your familiarity with the questions, but also improve your timing.

Taking practice tests and learning strategies that were specialized to my weaknesses helped me overcome the parts of the test with which I was struggling. This also came with the realization that you have to learn how College Board thinks and learn what to expect on the test in order to succeed. Doing well on standardized tests is all about how experienced you are with the type of questions and being taught to think like the test-makers; which is why preparation is crucial.

My biggest piece of advice would be to become familiar with the way in which the SAT test operates (via practice tests). The two biggest things I would focus on would be time management and trigger words. These tend to go hand in hand – if you can identify trigger words, you’ll know what the test is asking for, and subsequently eliminate wasted time trying to decipher what to look for.

What helped me succeed at the SAT was organizing the structure of the passage and reflecting on past mistakes.

While practicing the various sections of the SAT, I found that timing myself was very helpful because I struggled to maintain a consistent and reasonable pace throughout the test. I believe the biggest secret to standardized testing is refraining from second guessing yourself and refraining from spending too much time on one problem. It is important to be able to gauge which problems may take to long to solve and need to be skipped until later.
