Bombing Run Practice Sets
As we’ve emphasized, one of the most important
test-taking strategies is flying Bombing Runs. You need to determine
which items in a set are most likely going to be the easiest for
you and which to put off until later.
In the following section, you’ll find three sets:
- Set 1: Sentence Completions from a Critical
- Set 2: Multiple choice from a Math section.
- Set 3: Identifying Sentence Errors from a Writing section.
For each set, read all the stems and
determine in which order to attempt the items. You can write down
the order in the margins or on a separate piece of paper. If you’ve
already studied these item types, go ahead and complete the sets.
This second step is less important. Here, we just want you to focus
on practicing Bombing Runs.
When you’re done, turn the page to see in what order we
chose to attack these items. Realize that these decisions are personal,
so don’t fret if your order doesn’t exactly match ours. Your strengths
are what determine how you’ll fly Bombing Runs.
So get cracking on your SAT preparation. We wish you the
best of luck on your test and in all that you do.
