SAT Subject Test Tutoring
The College Board offers, in addition to the PSAT and standard SAT Reasoning, several individual SAT Subject tests. These exams assess detailed understanding of high school subjects, such as English, Biology, and US History. These tests are fairly similar to the AP exam, though generally not considered as challenging. Another difference is that SAT Subject tests do not usually feature separate written sections; rather, most exams are entirely multiple-choice formatted. Many colleges require that applicants take 2-3 SAT subject exams along with either the SAT or the ACT. Schools that do not explicitly require this still recommend it very highly anyway (which practically means: you need to take them). As you can see, no matter what, you should be taking at least a few SAT subject tests.
Unlike the SAT Reasoning test, SAT Subject tests allow you to choose which exams to take in order to showcase your individual achievement and understanding. Often science and engineering programs will specifically require that applicants take the Math II, Physics, and/or Chemistry tests. An academic tradition is for honors-level students to take SAT subject exams for their corresponding courses, while AP-level students take both AP and SAT Subject exams for theirs. However, any student may register for SAT Subject tests, and considering you can choose which scores to send to institutions, there’s very little reason to not take some.
To be certain, SAT Subject tests require just as much preparation as AP exams or the standard SAT. And preparing for an AP exam does not equate to preparation for the corresponding SAT Subject test. The material tested on SAT subject tests is not identical to that tested by AP’s, which is why many students invest in separate preparation methods, at the very least utilizing separate AP exam and SAT Subject test preparation books. Well unlike AP exams, there are no SAT Subject test equivalent academic classes in school.
Considering the sheer volume of material, particularly in combination with everyday classwork and potential AP and SAT/ACT preparation, you probably have little time to spare.
