How Can Your Child Improve His Or Her SAT Test Score ?

Completing a review course prior to taking the test will greatly enhance the possibility of initially getting a higher SAT score. The SAT program offers additional services after the taking of the test that should be considered. The student can use the SAT "QAS" feature which will enable the student to get their graded test back to see which questions they answered correctly, incorrectly or left blank. This will help the student to focus their studying to the areas that need improvement before they take the test again. The Feb 2010 price for this was $18. You can go to the College Board website at for more information.
