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
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.
