SAT Strategy and Pacing

Advertisement

Although time is strictly limited on the SAT, working too quickly can damage your score. Many problems hinge on subtle points, and most require careful reading of the set-up. As a high school heavy reading loads on students, many will follow their academic conditioning and read questions quickly, looking only to the essence of what each requires. Once they have found, they mark their answer and move on, confident they have answered well. Later, many frightened to discover that they missed questions because they either misread the problems or overlooked subtle points.

To do well in your lessons, you should try every or nearly every, problem on a test. Not so with the SAT. In fact, if you try this test to every problem to solve, you will probably decimate you score. For the vast majority of people, the key to performing well on the SAT is not the number of questions they answered within reason, but the percentage they answer correctly.
