Hi Ahbee,

Larger schools will typically have prep classes. There are apps that
you can get for your phone, but the math questions are generally not
accessible. You can use the "free rice" website, which I love. They
have an SAT prep category. There are, of course, online prep
materials. There are also books on bookshare and prep books that you
should be able to get in hard copy Braille.

I also want to remind you that getting into college is certainly not
all about test scores. If it was, I owd not have gotten into Stanford
or anywhere else to be perfectly honest. My SAT scores were absolutely
terrible, and I haven't passed many AP exams either. So while I
certainly advocate studying up for those tests, don't think that a bad
score or two is the end all of end alls.

Also, I really do think it's important to take each test that you're
planning to take twice. The first time, it's just a good idea to get a
feel for the test layout, types of questions, etc. When I retook the
SAT, I did much better (though still not nearly as well as I would
have liked) on it, and even though I had to pay for my second test, I
thought it was worth it. I also want to just take a quick minute to
remind you that you will likely not be testing with all the other
students. Instead, it will probably be proctored for you individually
at school, during a school day so that you receive your testing
accommodations, as prescribed by the College Board accommodations
letter you should have already gotten. Hope this helps!

Best,
