    Anthony recommends starting to study for these exams as soon as possible.
    We actually have a full, free guide on the topic here:
    You should try to commit to a little bit every day – even just 15 minutes of daily effort will make an enormous difference in your results, and so we encourage all students to begin studying as soon as their freshman year.

    A more detailed answer is that the earlier your child starts studying, the better. The earlier you begin, the less time you have to spend studying per day, which means that you can thoroughly prepare for these tests without disrupting your schedule, harming your GPA, or adding to your stress.

    If you put in just 15-30 minutes a day, you can gain over 100 hours of experience (more than enough time to raise your scores by entire college tiers) in less than a year. If you wait longer, you’ll need to put in more time per day, and you’ll also be creating “artificial deadlines” for absolutely no reason.

    Many students have begun studying in their junior springs, only to realize that they needed more time – suddenly, in their senior fall, they only have a few tests left despite their low scores. We recommend reading our free guide on the value of starting early. More importantly, once you make the decision to start, take a look at our free test prep calendar, which will give you a step-by-step, day-by-day plan and schedule that you can use to optimize your score with the lowest levels of stress and the highest possible chances of success:
