If you want to get better at the SAT, you must practice. This course will teach you lots of strategies, but it's up to you to practice.
When you first start studying, make sure to begin by taking a full-length practice test from the book. Score yourself, and figure out what you need to practice most.
Regularly practice the SAT. Do at least one section a day, and try to take a practice test every couple of weeks.
Watch the rest of this course and apply what you learn to your practice sessions.
If you want to focus on one section in specific, Educator.com has Section-specific lessons to help you prepare. First watch the lessons in this course on the section you want to study, then check out the Section-specific lessons.
Depending on how much time you have until the test, you'll want to approach studying in different ways. Watch this lesson's video to see various recommended timetables.
