Doing well on the SAT isn’t a magic trick.
You don’t need to learn more math or read better. You read fine, your math is fine. You might have forgotten some of the math, or you might be easily swayed by wrong answers, but you know what you need to know to do well on this test.
This test isn’t about what you know, it’s about how you take the test.
If it was about what you know, then:
- Math should be harder (more Precalc stuff).
- Reading should be specific (books you’ve read in school).
- They should test you on more Grammar rules.
Instead, they test you on
- The Math you learned when you were in the 7th, 8th, and 9th grade.
- They ask you questions but tell you exactly where to read for the answer.
- They only test you on a handful of grammar rules.
This isn’t a test of what you know. This is a test of your ability to take the test.
