Imagine two people trekking through a jungle toward a magical and therapeutic waterfall. Now, who will reach the soothing waters first, the native to the area, who never stumbles because she knows the placement of every tree and all the twists and turns, or the tourist who keeps falling down and losing his way because he doesn’t pay any attention to the terrain? The answer is obvious. Even if the tourist is a little faster, the native will still win, because she knows how to navigate the terrain and turn it to her advantage.
There are no waterfalls or gorgeous jungle scenery on the SAT IIs, but this example illustrates an important point. The structure of the SAT II Math IIC is the jungle; taking the test is the challenging trek. Your score is the waterfall.
In this chapter we’re going to describe the “terrain” of the Math IIC test. In the next chapter, on strategy, we will show you how to navigate and use the terrain to get the best score possible.
