Sat Math II Subject Test difficulty

kjake2000kjake2000 Registered User Posts: 634 Member
do the questions increase in difficulty over time like in SAT Math section? Or are they all the same level of difficulty?

Same question for chemistry, biology, physics etc... do they remain same difficulty or does the difficulty fluctuate?

    I know some questions are harder than others, I mean is there any pattern to difficulty of questions?

    I took Math II and Chemistry. In Math II, I noticed that the first few problems were rather easy, but the rest of the problems exhibited no observable pattern in terms of difficulty. In Chemistry, the first section (Matching & True False) was very easy, but after that, the rest of the problems exhibited no observable pattern either.
    Good luck!

    For all subject tests that I have taken, there is a difficulty progression that makes the first few questions the easiest and the last few the hardest.

    I took the Math II when I was in 8th grade and only scored a 650 (I was advanced in math so I took it early) I then retook it in 9th grade and scored a 750. The content on the test isn't challenging. Just like any standardized test you need to take a bunch of practice tests; that is the only way you can get the best score possible

    I've observed that the Math 2 test generally starts off easy and gets harder in difficulty level. Chemistry and physics however has the same difficulty level throughout.

    @MUSIC02 I would highly recommend the Barron's book. It's much harder than the actual test, but that prepares you well. If however you are short on time, other books like Princeton Review should suffice.
