Here’s where to get the current SAT practice tests, score sheets, and answer explanations from the College Board.
[Note: This text below refers to the older version of the SAT.]
Here’s how to find access the College Board’s online answer explanations to the Official SAT Study Guide (aka the Blue Book)
1. Go to www.collegeboard.com/satstudyguide
2. Click on either the DVD or 2nd edition of the book
3. Log into the site
4. At some point it will ask you for a certain word on a certain page to make sure you really have purchased the book
5. Select a test and click on View in the View Explanations and Sample Essays column.
6. Click the Section number in the upper left listing of all the sections and read the explanations.
If for some reason your screen doesn’t like that, here’s another way to access it. (This is an older view and the College Board hasn’t quite phased it out yet.)
1. Follow steps 1-4 above
2. Select a test and enter just one answer per section to get the last screen where it says “Score Test” (You don’t need their reports – my reports are much better!)
3. Now click on “Answers and Explanations” and you can read full explanations for every question.
Here’s a quick video walking through the process
