In this lesson, our professor Vincent Selhorst-Jones gives an introduction on general SAT strategy: equipment. He discusses the absolute necessities, what not to bring, a calculator, a watch, and optional equipment.
You absolutely must bring all of these to the SAT:
Your admission ticket,
Photo ID (original, valid, government-issued) [can be school-issued, if under 18],
Wooden pencils, No.2 (bring at least two).
While not technically required, you should definitely bring
The following are nice to have, but not necessary:
A drink (in a bottle or unopened can),
A dedicated eraser.
Other than the above calculator and watch, don't bring anything electronic. It could get you kicked out of the test! Do NOT bring a cell phone or any form of computer (laptops, tablets, etc.).
Similarly, since the people running the SAT are so paranoid about cheating, do NOT bring any form of written material (book, magazine, etc.).
