Thousands of students are getting prepared to take the new SAT test Saturday and many of them are worried about the changes.

Sharika Fletcher, will take the new SAT, said, "I'm a little nervous, that's about it, this is my first time taking it and I feel like the essay part is going to be the only hard part about it."

The senior regrets not taking the test sooner, she'll be taking the new version on Saturday and there is some big changes in the test.

Lyndia Adams, a Lufkin High School counselor, said, "The old test had analogies, also, there's a writing portion of the new essay. I think at LHS we prepare them for the writing."

There are a lot of resources that will help you prepare for the new test anything, from booklets to information online.

Marletta Thomas, who has already taken the SAT, said, "SAT books are good, if you have a teacher that can help you that's good."

Thomas doesn't have to worry about the new test, unlike Sharika, who is cutting it close for applying to colleges.

Fletcher said, "Don't wait until the last minute if you do, it's a lot of pressure."

Thomas said, "Good luck to those taking the new one."

Those who have taken the test say come prepared and get plenty of sleep the night before.

If you missed the deadline to sign up for Saturday's test, you can still sign up to take it in May and June.
