As you may know, I am passionate about test prep. Strange as that sounds, it’s quite true. I don’t know why I’m wired this way, but c’est la vie. I may as well embrace it, right?
In the past 7 years as I’ve worked to crack the SAT and ACT codes, I’ve also acquired a lot of really helpful knowledge in the areas around the tests. I’ve learned not just how to work through given questions, but also how to set a student up for success before ever opening a book to study. And today I get to share a little bit of that know-how with you!
I am so excited to share this episode of The College Checklist Podcast because I know firsthand the power of a well-planned testing and test prep timeline.
I see a lot of families make rookie mistakes when trying to go it alone because – well – many parents only go through this process once per student. That’s not very much practice.
Also, a lot of the cookie-cutter advice that floats around the internet may not apply to your student for a wide array of different considerations.
Without proper guidance, you can cause your student unnecessary stress and waste their time and your money.
Being strategic is critical. I’ve advised hundreds of families regarding the very best testing timeline and the amazing thing is that no 2 plans look alike. Every student gets his or her own personal road map – and that is the key to success.
Because I’m so passionate about this topic, I’m thrilled to share that – starting today – I offer free consultations to help all college-bound families that want help determining the very best test prep timeline for their students.
These are 100% free, no obligation phone calls with me – a test prep expert with nearly 10 years of experience! 🙂

Sample Test Prep Timeline
I used my high school self as the template for this timeline. In my junior year, I was enrolled in Precalculus while participating in Mock Trial and the fall play in October and November and the Spring Musical from March to May. I also had AP and IB exams in May.
- Prepare and take the SATs in either October and November OR January and March SAT
- Take 3 SAT Subject Exams in May & June
- Prepare and take the ACT in September & October
