5 YouTube channels to help you prepare for the SAT
With the SATs coming up very soon, it's prime time to start preparing for the exam. This year, students will take the test in a new digital format known as the digital SAT. While there are some fundamental changes to how the digital SAT will be conducted and its duration, most of the concepts and techniques employed in the traditional pen-and-paper SAT will still apply.
Having said all that, let us check out five of the best YouTube channels to help you prepare for the SATs.
1. Star Tutors
If you've already mastered the SAT syllabus and are trying to get a better understanding of the question pattern, Star Tutors is the channel you're looking for. It has an extensive list of question paper walkthroughs where the instructor goes over an entire SAT paper and explains the thought processes behind its answers.
2. The Princeton Review
The Princeton Review channel presents their acclaimed SAT learning modules and techniques found in their books in video form and helps grasp the more difficult SAT questions. The channel also takes a deep dive into understanding the digital SAT. Their dedicated playlist, "Digital SAT Updates 2023", addresses frequently asked questions and explains how the digital SAT functions, which I've found very helpful.
3. Hayden Rhodea
Hayden Rhodea is an SAT instructor who scored 1590 on his SAT. His channel, of the same name, has over 400 videos dedicated to tackling various aspects of the SAT including Math, Reading, and the optional Writing section. The channel's videos are straightforward, and Hayden presents tricky concepts in an easy-to-understand manner, making the videos suitable for all skill levels.
When watching his videos, you'll find that Hayden Rhodea shares little time optimisation techniques as he goes along, which is extremely useful. His series, "Crack the SAT's code", tackles the reading and the optional writing section of the SAT, which has not been addressed by many other channels with such dexterity and detail.
SupertutorTV has well-produced and high-quality videos on the SAT, formatted in a way reminiscent of educational TV shows. This unique format makes SupertutorTV's videos enjoyable to watch and easy to digest, which is commendable considering the complexity of the SAT syllabus. Their SAT segment addresses a variety of questions students may have and gives the viewer solid advice on a variety of concerns regarding the SAT, like preparing and managing the anxiety that comes with preparing for the exam.
5. Khan Academy SAT
Apart from their website and other forms of media, the non-profit educational organisation Khan Academy also has a dedicated YouTube channel for the SATs. Being the only College Board – the organisation responsible for creating and managing the SAT exams – partnered organisation for SAT preparation in the world, you can count on Khan Academy SAT's videos to be reliable and accurate. The channel also covers the bulk of the topics tested on the exams, and their impeccable style of teaching, combined with the efficiently spaced learning modules, makes their videos a must-watch for exam candidates.
