  SAT 

The SAT is a commonly
used test by colleges to measure if a student will succeed at there school.
Though not the only determining factor,
good SAT scores
can help bolster any college application.



The SAT focuses on Math,
Verbal, and Writing. Math and Verbal have always been part of the exam. Only
recently (March 12, 2005) was the writing section added. The SAT is broken up
into 10 sections, 3 sections for each major category (Math, Verbal, and Writing)
and one experimental section that is not graded. The format of the test is as
follows:

The order of the
sections is not fixed and can be administered in any order.



The experimental
section, can be from any of the main subject categories (math, verbal, or
writing). You will not be notified which section is the experimental one but you
will know the subject category (since there will be an additional section for
one of the main categories).



Though the SAT is a
strictly timed test you must make sure to pace yourself. Many people are
accustomed to a test-taking approach that focuses on answering every question,
but on the SAT it is not how many questions you answer but rather how many you
answer correctly. The SAT penalizes students for answering question incorrectly
so In turn answering everything can significantly impact your score, depending
on how many questions you get wrong.



Each section of the SAT
is scored on a 200-800 point system which makes the total score possible range
from 600-2400. The average score per section is 500 making the average score
1500.
