Of course one can surely prepare for the test on his own but still when time is short and more to achieve it is fine to get involved in some of the institutes so that they can give enough of coaching. The continuous practice of the tests that acts as simulation of the original test can give them enough idea. This can even help as stress reliever since the format is clear so are the sections that are to be solved so the only option remains is the performance and as far as SAT-I is concerned as it deals with the general aptitude of the student so just being aware with the verbal section and if having a good background of reading novels and daily newspapers can also help in the entire process. But SAT-II needs some special care. It is good to get involved in some group students since the subjects are really large and have immense scope. So being able to cut each and every concept and practicing enough is never guaranteed so it as advisable to work in groups and by using the divide and rule policy many things can be done in les amount of time and this way even the toughest of the subjects can be cracked which are not possible through individual strength even if one is extremely good at a particular subject.
