Below is our suggested order of lessons for SHSAT prep. We highly recommend taking the SHSAT Diagnostic Test before doing any of the lessons. Simply taking the test will help you better understand the content and tips presented in the lessons.

We will track your progress, which will be available to you under “Advanced Assessment”. Your assessment will constantly be updated based on practice tests and sample problems that you complete. Don’t focus too much on the assessment until after you take the diagnostic test and go through all of the lessons up to and including Practice Test 01. However, if you have a limited amount of time to prepare, use the assessment to prepare after taking the diagnostic test.

Students take the SHSAT in fall of 8th grade, but starting much earlier is a good idea. It makes sense to start in the 7th grade or earlier. Take advantage of the summer before 8th grade. Students should also study during the summers, between 6th and 7th grade

## FAQs About the SHSAT

English Language Arts and Mathematics. Note that the English Language Arts part consists of Revising/Editing and Reading Comprehension.

No, a calculator is not permitted on the SHSAT.

For the SHSAT, it is best to start as early as possible. The SHSAT is a very difficult test and each student only has one chance to take it during 8th grade. There is another chance to take it as a freshman in high school, but there are less seats available in thes pecialized high schools.

There is no formula sheet. However, some questions may provide a formula.

Students are competing for available seats, so the score changes year to year. After the tests are graded, the students are ranked and placed into schools based on their rank and preferences for schools. On average, we have found that around an 85 is necessary to gain access to a specialized high school. However, because of the way the SHSAT is scored, a simple percentage is not accurate.

According to the department of education, over 30,000 students take the SHSAT every year. However, that shouldn’t discourage you! 30,000 students take the test, but that doesn’t mean that they are prepared for the test. They might not have the grades you have or put in the work necessary to ace the SHSAT. If you study for the test, you can separate yourself from those other students.
