Registering for the SAT
You can register for the tests here on the College Board’s website. Be sure to always register for the test including the optional Essay, since many colleges require that you take the Essay in order for your score to be accepted.
Also, you should always order the Question-and-Answer Service when available. The Question-and-Answer service is available for the October, March, and May test dates only. It will provide you with a copy of the test questions and answers as well as the answers you chose, so that you can review the test as part of your further preparation! You can obtain more information about the Question-and-Answer service at this page on the College Board’s website.
