Hey, I am currently studying for the SIFT exam, test date at the end of this month (JULY 2019): currently studying
1.SIFT book i bought off Amazon
2.The FAA rotary wing book (chapters 1-3)
3. Khan academy for math and english

What advice do you have for studying and are chapters 1-3 necessary to study for the FAA rotary wing handbook?

It's basically the ASVAB with a few Aviation tailored sections. If you have a SIFT study guide from Amazon, then the sections on Simple Drawings, Hidden Figures and Spacial Apperception are pretty much on point for what to expect. Reading Comp, Math and Mechanical Comp. are what they are. Brush up on what you struggle with. Math is my weak spot so I spent a lot of time studying here. The Aviation knowledge/information section isn't hard, but I'll be honest and say that I remember several questions being worded very poorly (it doesn't help they still give this test out on old computers running on what seems to be windows 95). So be sure to read the questions carefully.

To answer your question, Chapters 1-3 will help out with the Aviation Information section if you aren't already familiar with Rotary Wing Aircraft.

I scored a 56. Lower than what I was shooting for, but a decent score overall.

Be disciplined and allow time to assimilate what you read.
