Approaches to Taking the SAT and SAT Subject Tests
 
All questions count the same, so answer the easy questionsfirst.
The easier questions are usually at the beginning o thesection, and the harder ones are at the end. The exceptionis in the critical reading section o the SAT and SAT SubjectTests with reading passages (Literature and oreign languagetests), where questions are ordered according to the logic andorganization o each passage.
 
Make educated guesses.
You have a better chance o guessingthe right answer i you can rule out one or more answerchoices or multiple-choice questions.
 
Skip questions that you really can’t answer.
No points arededucted i an answer is let blank.
 
Limit your time on any one question.
All questions are worththe same number o points. I you need a lot o time to answera question, go on to the next one. Later, you may have time toreturn to the question you skipped.

The SAT
The SAT measures the skills you have learned in and outside othe classroom and how well you can apply that knowledge. Ittests how you think, solve problems, and communicate. The testis composed o three sections:
 
Critical reading,
which has sentence completion and passage-based reading questions.
 
Mathematics,
which is based on the math that college-boundstudents typically learn during their first three years o highschool.
 
Writing,
which has multiple-choice questions and a writtenessay.You have 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete the entire test.All multiple-choice questions are scored the same way: one pointor each correct answer, and one-quarter point subtracted or awrong answer. No points are subtracted or answers let blank.The total score or each section is on a 200–800 scale.
The Critical Reading Section
The critical reading section gives you a chance to show how wellyou understand what you read. This section has two types oquestions:
 
Sentence completions (19 questions)
 
Passage-based reading (48 questions)
Note: Calculators may not be on your desk or used on thecritical reading section o the SAT.
Approaches to the Critical Reading Section
 
Work on sentence completion questions first. They take lesstime to answer than the passage-based reading questions.
 
The dif culty o sentence completion questions increases asyou move through the section.
 
Reading questions do not increase in dif culty rom easy tohard. Instead, they ollow the logic o the passage.
 
The inormation you need to answer each reading questionis always in the passage(s). Reading careully is the key tofinding the correct answer. Don’t be misled by an answer thatlooks correct but is not supported by the actual text o thepassage(s).
 
Reading questions oten include line numbers to help directyou to the relevant part(s) o the passage. I one word or moreis quoted exactly rom the passage, the line number(s) wherethat quotation can be ound will appear in the test question.You may have to read some o the passage beore or ater thequoted word(s), however, in order to find support or the bestanswer to the question.
 
Do not jump rom passage to passage. Stay with a passageuntil you have answered as many questions as you can beoreyou proceed to the next passage.
 
In your test booklet, mark each question you don’t answer sothat you can easily go back to it later i you have time.
 
Remember that all questions are worth the same number opoints regardless o the type or dif culty.
Sentence Completions
Sentence completion questions measure your
 
knowledge o the meanings o words;
 
ability to understand how the dierent parts o a sentence fittogether logically.
