SAT Apps: An Overview

As mobile apps have become more popular, the College Board, SAT prep companies, educational app companies, and individuals have created their own apps to help students prepare for the SAT. Those who have created the apps are trying to capitalize on the popularity of mobile apps, and they want to make SAT prep material more accessible for students.

If you have an SAT prep app on your phone or tablet, you can conveniently do some SAT studying wherever you’re at, whether you’re at home, school, or a boring family function.  Also, studying on an app is more enjoyable and interactive for some students than using a traditional SAT prep book.

Most SAT prep apps are free, but there are some that cost money to purchase.


Why SAT Prep Apps Are Not Enough

SAT apps can be a good study tool, but you probably won’t be able to solely rely on them to reach your target score. You should check out our articles on how to get a perfect score on the SAT and the best ways to study for the SAT.

Most of the apps don't have adequate practice questions. There are either too few of them, or they're not representative of the questions you'll get on the SAT. You may need more real SAT questions or realistic practice questions to sufficiently drill your knowledge and improve your content weaknesses.

Also, the apps don’t teach you SAT test-taking strategies that can help you. Most don’t cover test-taking strategies like how to read the SAT Reading and Writing passages.

Additionally, the majority aren’t customized to your skill level. To improve your SAT score, you need to focus your time on improving your weaknesses. You may need to get better with your time management on the Reading section. Or you may need help with linear equations.

Generally, these apps aren’t effective at determining where you’re weak, and they’re not designed to help you focus on the areas in which your skills need to improve.
