Is U.S. History your favorite subject? Are you trying to find ways in which you can make your high school transcript stand out from the crowd when applying to colleges? Well, by putting your U.S. History knowledge to good use and obtaining a stellar score on the SAT Subject Test in U.S. History, you can demonstrate to colleges that you really know your stuff. This will help improve your college application by giving your transcript that extra wow factor.

While the “regular” SAT tests a wide range of skills, SAT Subject Tests, as you might guess, test only specific subjects in great detail. The SAT Subject Test in U.S. History is no exception. It consists entirely of multiple-choice questions—ninety, to be precise—and you are given an hour during which to answer them all. The exam tests your knowledge of the history of the United States of America by challenging you to recall details about major historical events and trends, as well as integrate new information from primary historical sources into your existing knowledge in order to make the most reasoned historical analysis. On the exam, this “new information” often takes the form of images or quotations that certain questions, but not all of them, ask you to consider.

The SAT Subject Test in U.S. History is given six times a year: in October, November, December, January, May, and June. Most students choose to take SAT Subject Tests as juniors or seniors, simply because before this point they might not have completed classes which can help them expand and refine their historical knowledge. After taking the test, you receive a score on a scale of 200 to 800; a 200 is the worst possible score you can receive, and an 800 is the best possible score you can receive.

You may now be wondering: what parts of U.S. History does the SAT Subject Test in U.S. History stress? This is a relevant question that can help you to plan your studies. If sorted by the aspects of U.S. History questions test, the content of the exam is as follows:

  • Political history (31–35%)
  • Economic history (13–17%)
  • Social history (20–24%)
  • Intellectual and cultural history (13–17%)
  • Foreign policy (13–17%)

If one organizes the content of the SAT Subject Test in U.S. History according to the periods in which events tested took place, one can see a different picture of this material:

  • Before 1789 (20%)
  • 1790 to 1898 (40%)
  • After 1899 (40%)

So, are you ready to take on the SAT Subject Test in U.S. History? It’s an exam that represents quite a challenge; so, along with a focused study plan, you’re going to need the best resources available to work with.
