Most U.S. students don’t study that much for it. “A” students usually score around a 1900 or higher (2400 is the highest on the SAT), or a 29 or higher on the ACT (36 is the highest). If you do want to study, though, you can purchase the official SAT BLUE Book on the www.sat.collegeboard.org website, or you can purchase third party SAT and ACT Study Books on www.amazon.com.
