SAT Preparation

Just like anything else, doing well on the SAT test takes a little practice. While there is no "silver bullet" to ace the tests, there are solid strategies that you can learn to improve your score by 200-300 points. For example, does this problem strike fear in the heart of your child? If so, SAT preparation is for you.

The longer you have to prepare for the test, the better you will do. But even if you have a short time before the test, we can develop a plan to maximize your score.

New SAT

  • No more error penalty. Go ahead and guess.
  • While there is no science section, there are charts, graphs and tables with data to interpret in every section.
  • Math now has calculator-allowed and calculator-prohibited sections.
  • The test, however, places an emphasis on students’ ability to identify when a calculator is an effective tool. The calculator section will include “questions in which the calculator could be a deterrent to answering the question, thus assessing appropriate use of tools.
  • Greater emphasis on algebra and practical problem solving.
  • Plane and solid geometry is greatly de-emphasized. Maybe only one or two questions.
  • The classic math puzzlers of the current SAT are gone.
  • No more sentence completions.
  • Vocabulary words will be more relevant. No more obscure vocabulary.
  • While the essay is optional, some colleges require it. Check with the desired schools.
  • The essay tests reading, analysis, and writing skills; students produce a written analysis of a provided source text. It is important to note that students are not asked to offer their own opinion on the topic of the passage but are instead expected to analyze how the author constructs an argument.
  • There will be a greater emphasis on critical thinking. Students will be asked to show they can interpret and use evidence they’ve found in text passages to answer questions.
  • Each test section will include a passage based on an American historical document or a timely topic. The new passages will help students reflect on topics that are important for being an informed and knowledgeable U.S. citizen.
