General Format of the SAT II Math IIC
The SAT II Math IIC is a one-hour long test made up of 50 multiple-choice questions. The instructions for the test are straightforward. You should memorize them so you don’t waste time reading them on the day of the test.
For each of the following problems, decide which is the BEST of the choices given. If the exact numerical value is not one of the choices, select the choice that best approximates this value. Then fill in the corresponding oval on the answer sheet.
Simple, right? Unfortunately, the instructions don’t cover many important aspects about the format and rules of the test:
  • The 50 questions progress in order of difficulty, from the easiest to the hardest.
  • You can skip to different questions during the test. While you don’t want to skip around randomly, the ability to skip the occasional question is helpful, as we will explain in the next chapter.
  • All questions are worth the same number of points, regardless of the level of difficulty.
These facts can greatly affect your approach to taking the test, as we will show in the next chapter, on strategy.
