PSAT

I like that you have chosen to give information about SAT registration. You might consider adding information about the PSAT, which is a good way to practice for the real test and is also linked to various scholarships (most notably National Merit). If memory serves, students typically take it in the fall of junior year of high school. --JimR 10:20, 1 February 2010 (EST)

Good suggestion, but I don't know if that is so easy for homeschoolers to take. Isn't the PSAT administered in school during the week? Also, quite candidly, the PSAT has very little practical benefit to the students.--Andy Schlafly 11:41, 1 February 2010 (EST)
There is a PSAT date on the weekend, so I assume homeschoolers can take it. To my mind, the main benefit is the possibility for scholarships and the realistic SAT practice. Also, a good score will help a college application, while bad ones can simply not be listed and thus do no harm. Of course, I don't know much about the college application process for homeschoolers, and I will happily defer to your expertise in this case. --JimR 15:16, 1 February 2010 (EST)
