IF YOU ARE A JUNIOR, PLANNING TO ATTEND A 4-YEAR COLLEGE AFTER GRADUATION, THIS IS FOR YOU!

It is also beneficial to take the test to get a head start on improving academic skills needed for success in college and beyond. Classroom learning is the basis for test questions, so the best way you can prepare is to involve yourself in rigorous courses and become familiar with the test and its format. You should review the PSAT/NMSQT Official Student Guide, which is full of useful information, including a full-length Practice Test. The Guide and the Practice Test will help you understand all the directions and be familiar with the types of questions that will be asked. (You will receive this upon registration.)
