I'm talking about an English as a Second Language (ESL) student athlete here. He needs to get a score of minimum 860 as NCAA eligibility rule. Scoring any point on CR and WR seems almost impossible for an intermediate-level ESL student. He is not too strong in math either. So I need to play the 200-minimum-score cards right to reach 860. My key questions are:
1) Would leaving CR and WR multiple choice sections BLANK possibly get him a score slightly higher than 200?
2) What does it take to get a 1 or 2 on the Essay section? maybe, one body paragraph? (writing an in-class essay is a huge challenge for the student..)
3) Does a score of 500 in math require that he gets roughly half of the problems right? (while omitting the other half)
4) Which book do you recommend for an easy-to-understand preparation of SAT math ?
