    SAT Test FAQ

    The SAT has 3 components: Math, Critical Reading (English & Reading) and Writing.

    Math
    The Math Test focuses in-depth on three areas of math: Problem Solving and Data Analysis, Algebra, & Passport to Advanced Math or complex equations and the manipulation they require.

    Problem Solving and Data Analysis includes using ratios, percentages, and proportional reasoning to solve problems in science, social science, and career contexts.

    Algebra focuses on the mastery of linear equations and systems, which helps students develop key powers of abstraction.

    The redesigned SAT also includes questions on other topics in math, including geometric and trigonometric skills.

    Words in Context
    Many questions on the new SAT focus on important, widely used words and phrases found in texts in many different subjects. Some questions ask you to figure out a word’s meaning based on context.

    Command of Evidence
    The Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section and the SAT Essay ask you to interpret, synthesize, and use evidence found in informational graphics. Passage topics include literature, nonfiction, humanities, science, history and social studies.

    Every Reading passage or two, one question will ask to identify which part of the text best supports the answer to the previous question.

    The SAT does not have a separate test in science.

    Writing an Essay
    is considered optional for both the SAT and ACT test. Many Universities do want you to submit an essay; research what your college asks for.

    Compare
    You have 50 minutes to complete the essay on the SAT and 40 minutes to complete it on the ACT.

    The SAT will test your critical thinking, writing/reading and English skills.

    The ACT will test your abilities in remembering facts, utilizing information and your comprehension of the sciences.

    Some might say students who are logical would thrive on the ACT while those who think more freely might prefer the SAT. From your past experiences in taking tests, determine what the weak areas are and work on those.

    By seeking out teachers, counselors and tutors you can ask for advice on how to improve in those areas. Take sample tests, evaluate the results and keep testing and reevaluating. A review of the weaker area(s) of concern can help with the content of the SAT, such as vocabulary words or brushing up on algebra or geometry problems. Essays are judged for quality not quantity. There are many tips for good hard hitting writing.
