Okay, so I made a previous thread on How I got an 800 on SAT Math or something like that.
I'll stop repeating myself after this, but I decided to make a thread where everyone that did well on the SAT Math can contribute some advice for those who want to raise their scores!
I'll start off with a few:
1. Practice, Practice, Practice! The more you practice math problems, the less overwhelmed you will be when you take the real SAT math.
2. More importantly, REVIEW the solutions to all the questions you answer.
- NOT JUST THE INCORRECT ONES. Sometimes, solutions can show you the most error-
prone and quickest methods to solve a problem. However, if you have a better method for
solving certain types of problems and you don't make lots of mistakes through solving
those problems, you should definitely go with what suits you best!
3. Use your calculator, BUT not too much. Calculators can waste a lot of time if you don't know when to use them. Some things you should do to IMPROVE YOUR SAT MATH SCORE by about 50 POINTS is memorizing your times tables (quick: 12 x 13?) up to about 15 or so, learning a few square numbers, and using formulas and tricks like slope (y2 - y1/x2 - x1), difference of squares, and . If there are a lot of calculations involved or you're not sure if you can be accurate with pencil and paper, you may want to use your calculator. If you do use it on a long calculation problem, make sure you typed in the right numbers to calculate.
4. Math is by far the easiest to improve on. I suggest you to take Algebra and Geometry (maybe even Alg. II for the graphs) before you take the SAT, but that's up to you.
5. AMC 8 Tests: These math tests are great substitutes for SAT tests and should definitely improve your score by at least 100 to 150 points if you use them to your advantage.
