how was it?
• Registered User Posts: 40 Junior Member
Was it just me or was the math harder than normal? Writing was a breeze and Reading was easy, there were a few SC that screwed me over and there was only 1 difficult reading passage on Philosophy. Anyways, what did you guys get for the P* prime number math problem? It was like p*=(100p)*..........Thank god I took it early as a Junior with very limited prep..

I had trouble with that question! I said more than three, because the primes for 100 are 5 and 2. If you multiply 100 by 100 or 1000 or 10000, you still get 5 and 2.

Ugh I think you are right....I hope that was the experimental section because there were 4 Math sections.
• Registered User Posts: 109 Junior Member
Yeah I may not even be right. I changed my answer last minute (more like last second lol). I was hoping the same, but wasn't that question in the 20 minute math section?
• Registered User Posts: 57 Junior Member
how do you know which one was the experimental section??? is it the one hwere they only give u 20 minutes to complete??? if so then the prime question isnt =\. and i put none for the prime question but i just guessed lmao.

I thought it was more than three Might be wrong.

like seriously, i think i went down in CR. i seriously couldn't answer most of the questions... and i panicked during the exam. ):
• Registered User Posts: 109 Junior Member
I had none at first too, I really dont think it was a fair question.
The one 20 minute math section was definitely not experimental. Any of the other three may have been. And ok, then the prime question MAY have been experimental.
What did you get for the critical reading question asking about the boy who was really talented for his age but was disrespectful to his elders? I put a (I cant remember the words right now- the first word might be propitious?)

I don't think that was the 20 minute section, no. I'm 90% sure it wasn't. And KennyP since there were 4 Math sections, 1 one of them had to be experimental, and I'm HOPING it was the prime number one. Overall this test screwed me over, much harder than the 15 or so CollegeBoard tests I've taken.

Oh Theuntruth that was option A. I was so happy I got that right, Precocity was the first blank!
• Registered User Posts: 202 Junior Member
Ok so I though
Math - medium to easy
CR - Easy
Writing - medium to hard
• Registered User Posts: 40 Junior Member
Really? I thought it was more like
Math- Medium To Hard
CR- Medium
Writing- Super Easy
And I'm confident I got a 10 or higher on my essay so that helps.
• Registered User Posts: 202 Junior Member
