The PSAT
The long and short of it is that you can definitely use this book to prepare for the PSAT. Just ignore the part of our chapter on the Writing Section that covers the essay, since the PSAT does not contain a scored essay. Note, however, that the PSAT does give high schools the option of letting students write an essay for practice.
Many important scholarships, including the National Merit Scholarships, use PSAT scores as a way to evaluate students. That means the PSAT can be a very important part of your college application. If you’re interested in finding out more about possible scholarships in general, or the National Merit Scholarship in particular, you should talk to your high school counselor.
