There are 6 free downloadable and printable pdf versions of full length past versions (used until Dec 2015) of the official SAT practice tests below.
Access full length new versions of the College Board’s SAT Practice Tests (starting in March 2016) here. The new version of the SAT has an evidence-based reading section, a writing and language section, two math sections (one with calculator not permitted and one where calculators are allowed), and an “optional” essay sections on rhetorical analysis.
The older versions of the SAT are less accurate because they include question types that are no longer on the new version of the SAT, such as the vocabulary and quantitative comparison questions. However, some sections, like the reading and math, are similar to the version of the SAT administered today. So use these old versions of the SAT mainly for practice and not to predict your score on the Official SAT. The newer versions of the SAT practice tests are more accurate indicators of what score you should obtain on the official College Board SAT.
To practice, simply click and download the pdf from below. Use the answer key at the end to correct your practice test. Then use the conversion chart at the end to convert your raw scores to scaled scores and percentiles.
