If you will be taking your PSAT this year, then it is important to study to make sure you are ready for the big day. Thankfully, Varsity Tutors' Learning Tools is here to help you with a full suite of free PSAT study help. When leading a busy lifestyle, you may not have time to sit down and take full PSAT practice tests as often as you would like, so the Varsity Tutors' Learn Tools Flashcards are perfect to practice whenever you have time to squeeze a little PSAT review into your schedule.
These free flashcards online can be accessed any time of day or night and from a computer, tablet, or smart phone. They are not timed, so you can either answer the questions quickly to continue your practice working against the clock or leave the interface open or take your time answering them in the evening when you are relaxing.
Three distinct sets of PSAT flashcards are offered, so you can choose the section of the test you would like to work on during every study session. These flashcard sets include Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools PSAT Math flashcards, PSAT Critical Reading flashcards, and PSAT Writing Flashcards.
Each set of flashcards is then divided by concept into smaller sets. PSAT Math flashcards are broken down into sets of Algebra, Geometry, Data Analysis, Inequalities, Decimals, and other specific Mathematics concepts you my encounter on the PSAT exam. The PSAT Critical Reading flashcards are divided into sets that include passage-based questions, language in social science/history questions, two-blank sentence questions, and many more concepts you may want to hone in on while you practice. Varsity Tutors' Learning Tools PSAT Writing flashcards have sets based on locating errors in sentences, correcting word-usage errors, and more.
However, when you want to study the entire database of PSAT Math, PSAT Critical Reading, or PSAT Writing, you can choose to include every concept in your study session by clicking the icon next to the test section.
You can study alone or have fun with friends by gathering in front of the computer to play games with the flashcards. You can click on one flashcard, have everyone secretly write down what they think is the right answer, and then reveal the correct answer. Keep score, and the friend with the highest number of “correct” answers will be the winner of the game!
Along with the pre-made PSAT flashcards that you can take advantage of right away, you can also create your own PSAT study flashcards with the Varsity Tutors' Learning Tools Flashcards maker. To use the flashcard builder, all you have to do is click on “Create Tests & Flashcards,” and you will be led to screen that allows you to name your new virtual deck of flashcards. You will then be directed to the first blank flashcard template that you then input your question, your answer options, and the correct answer. Once you have created your own set of PSAT study flashcards, you can then choose to mix-it-up and add some of the Varsity Tutors' Learning Tools ready-made flashcards into your deck, or practice just the questions you created.
It is important to engage in some PSAT study review, because while the test is called the Preliminary SAT test, a good score on it can help you land college scholarships. It also offers the perfect opportunity to build great study skills to increase your confidence level when the time to take the SAT does arrive.
