OK - long story short, my parents received an application from my school to sign me up for the "Duke Talent Search", which is obviously a search for talent so they know who to scout out for the future. This is offered to 7th graders in my area. Anyway, me being smart (according to the tests), they decided to sign me up for this crap. What is the Duke Talent Search? You may be asking yourself that same question. Well, it's basically forcing seventh graders like me to take the SAT/ACT along with high schoolers taking it for real. This shouldn't be a problem. Last year at my "highly advanced" private school (which I no longer attend), we did SAT verbal study in Language Arts via the 5-part video series known as "Quack". Yes, it stuck, and yes, I am now armed with a crapload of SAT vocabulary as part of my arsenal. Essay writing I shouldn't have a problem with, either, as I've been given top marks on various essays in my school's gifted program. The big problem I'm going to have is the math part of the SATs. I've been looking through a preperation booklet, and it seems like there is geometry and advanced algebra and trigonometry and calculus and a bunch of other crap that I haven't learned yet (I'm only in pre-algebra). The preperation guide doesn't offer any way to learn, because it's designed for high-schoolers who are supposed to know this stuff. So, is there anyway that I could learn the math part of the SATs by the end of January?
