SAT Physics

What do we have to memorize other than like concepts and formulas?

More specifically, how much trig do we have to memorize?

    Buy a review book. I don't remember doing any trig stuff? But the curve is rediculous. I took a practice test(before I studied) and got a 32/75 raw and that was equivalent to a 620.

    will a review book be sufficient enough if I am self studying for it?
    Also what review book would you recommend?

    I do have a review book, and it assumed I knew sin30 = 1/2 (or whatever that value is), so i was curious as to if i would have to memorize the sin/cos/tan of 30, 60, and common measures like that...

    That should be easy if you know the properties of right triangles. Also, you could just use the unit circle and all the values are pretty much identical, give or take a sign. Google Unit Circle.
