When College Board announced that an August SAT date would replace its traditional January test, it generated a fair amount of excitement as the change provides students with the opportunity to prepare for and take an official SAT free from the academic rigors of junior year and first-semester senior year. For years, busy students have used the summer before junior and/or senior year as a time to study for standardized tests; however, the efficacy of this approach was compromised with a month or more gap between the student’s prep and the September ACT and October SAT test dates.

The answer depends on several different factors.
