I advise student to take the SAT at least twice. There is often a gain in the second set of scores, because the student has had the opportunity to experience the format and timing of the test. After the second testing session, there is not often a dramatic change unless the student is actively engaged in efforts to improve scores. Some examples of these types of efforts include activities such as test preparation programs, individual practice time with sample tests or workbooks, or computer-based training programs. Good luck to your daughter as she considers the many exciting options that she has open to her.
