If you took the SAT cold, you’d still get
some Sentence Completions right. But you probably wouldn’t get those
points in the most efficient way possible. Plus, there are many
items you might skip, items you’ll find a lot more approachable
with just a little coaching and some simple strategies.
We’d like to present two methods you can use to solve
Sentence Completions. The first is the “forward” method. This is
an explicit discipline you should follow every time you
attempt a Sentence Completion. The second is the
“backward” method. You’ll use this method when you can’t successfully
use the forward method.
