I will then I was on my 20th question or something, and the supervisor suddenly said "5 minutes left". We didn't have a big clock to check our time with, no stopwatches, we only had the supervisor saying "5 minutes left". I was so shocked that I was rushing through the rest of the section spending round 10 seconds reading the passage, when the supervisor said "oh sorry, it's actually 7 minutes". Well, as you can imagine, she narrowly survived being "calculated"... Reply

It was like two lines with lengths 3 and 4, a point F and a line "l". The question was "What is the distance between point F and line "l"?" I think it asked for the shortest distance between the two lines. If not, I just inferred that... that's normally what "distance between two lines" means. Also, you know that the two lines are parallel since both angles were 90. Reply

I think I put down 7.5 or something but I can't remember. I just remember assuming it was a proportional deal. Reply

Our proctor had never done an SAT before and once we finished the essay we were given a 5 minute break. I thought the break came after the second or third section but oh well, I said. Then when we came back the proctor said, "Open your test booklets and start section 3." All of us were like "what?" I just started on section 2 because, well that was common sense. When people said that we were suppose to be doing section 2 she just said to "follow the instructions and continue on section 3". We were all confused until the proctor went for help and the supervisor told us to turn back to section 2 and do that part of the test, we were given the full 25 minutes again. By the time the supervisor came in I was already on the 5-6th problem on the math, section 2. Things got weirder as the proctor gave us breaks after EVERY section until the seventh section. No one spoke up and we all acted like nothing was wrong, we weren't going to argue with extra breaks. When the other classrooms were already being dismissed I could tell that she knew she had made a mistake and we got no more breaks after that. Anyways, I thought the essay was just like any other essay, I just thought of 3 examples before hand to fill up the two pages and was able to morph it into something that made sense. I thought the math section was easy, the reading section was hard, and the writing section was pretty easy. Overall a success... Reply

 10-11-2009, 12:57 AM #55 New Member   Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 4 I thought the answer to that one was 667....i got 9 for the hexagon aswell Reply
 10-11-2009, 01:05 AM #56 New Member   Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 29 oh crap. i didnt count 1000 as a number cause i thought it meant less than 1000 so i did 999/3 which was 333, and then did 999-333= 666 Reply
 10-11-2009, 01:19 AM #57 Junior Member   Join Date: Sep 2009 Posts: 51 No, 666 is right. It said 'less than 1000' which means 1000 is not included. I was so surprised I got that right, I thought I bs'ed that question 'hmm 1000-1 is 999, divide by 3, 333, so it's 666. oh the hell with it.' Also I think I got every single question about the stupid woman artist wrong. That essay structure was so effing retarded I don't how in hell it ever got published. Like *** was she talking about, shepherd boy prodigies, aristocracies, high class women.....WHAT?? But then again I was so dam tired near the end cause of flu... Reply

 10-11-2009, 01:48 AM #59 New Member   Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 29 ya independance was an answer. i put the overall purpose of the passage to show how artists are influenced by soical context, and another one i put decadent activity dunno was one of ur answers ofr sentence completetion slapstick Reply
