Test-Taking Strategies
Do Your Coursework
Part of your daily reading will come out of your English coursework. However, remember that passages are taken from all areas of fiction, science, history, art, and architecture. So pay close attention to your textbooks and the other reading material you’re given.
Concentrate on planning out your papers for school. Plan what your arguments are first, then write them down. The SAT essay is designed to weed out those who simply start writing without having first thought through the issue at hand.
In your math classes, use your SAT prep to nail down concepts that have always given you trouble (what the heck is the Triangle Inequality Theorem, anyway?), and pay special attention to second-year algebra, because some of those concepts will be on the new SAT.
