Just like Korean, Chinese and Italian, Japanese is yet another SAT subject test mainly given by students who speak Japanese. The average score for Japanese with listening is pretty high compared to languages such as Latin, Hebrew, French, German. If you want to compete with Japanese students then you have to eat the Japanese prep books 😉 Still you can get good marks if you have the right material to study from. You may not score that much high but you can score decent marks to get admission in a good college depending on Japanese with listening SAT score.
There is no particular book available in the market specially made for SAT exam. Hence you need to learn from other books which are good in Japanese. You can look out local book stores for Japanese books for SAT Exam. Check out the below books if they can help you out.
