Sat I International Discussion

<p>So, what did everyone think of the test? The verbal, I thought, was quite easy, and the math was a tad tricky, but doable. Tell me what you're predicting for yourselves. I'm predicting 690-720 on math cuz I missed like 4 I know, and 720-780 on the verbal cuz so far, i know I missed 2, but that's it. Oh, and here are some of the answers I got:</p>

<p>I put suture:wound::sew:tear. Then, there were other ones like Omen:Presage::Satire:Deride... and on the math, the one with the cube grid-ins was 1/8, the one with the t-shirts was 160, the angle of that pendulum was 120 degrees, uhh... the last question on the 15 min math section was x-1.. and, the the triangle question in the last section was root(3)... I dunno.. I found that test really easy except for the first math.. i screwed up like 3 on that one, and on the grid ins I screwed up 1</p>

<p>how do u take the international SAT? What's the difference?</p>

<p>Well, I live outside the US. I live in Caracas, Venezuela. They give us a different test than those testing in the US.</p>

<p>The weird thing is that I live in Canada, and I got the international version this time, but last time I got the same one as all the Americans.
I don't remember there being a question with root(3) as the answer, but perhaps I'm forgetting something.
Some answers I remember:
1. There was a sentence completion about Black Theatre whose answer was something like "energized."
2. There was a grid-in about the smallest possible value for <i>j</i>, which was a multiple of 5 and 10 and the square of an integer. I put 100.
3. In the critical reading with two passages about Westerns, I put that passage 2 gave historical context for passage 1 and that the two would agree that industrialized workers were treated harshly by their bosses.
4. In the critical reading about gender association with words, I had "Entry" as an answer.
Can't think of anything else off the top. It'll come to me, though.</p>

<p>Which one was the experimental? The three-passage?</p>

<p>yeah. i got intl version as well..
which one do u think was exp? the second section where they had the short passges?</p>

<p>do u rem which sectino was the analogy "RESOLUTE:PIGHEADED::ACCOMODATING:FAWNING" on?</p>

<p>I'm not sure. One would think so, but the discussion in the other SAT I post seems to indicate that not all the ones with short passages were experimental.
I just remembered another one: the question in the final section about number ABC, the answer to which was something like 692. Anyway, it was B. (I remembered because I made a careless error there and caught it, thankfully.)</p>

<p>"I didn't take the SAT today - however I took it in June and it looks like a lot of your analogies, sentence completions, and passage(s) were borrowed from the June 2004 administration. For example, the answer to the sentence completion that you had about the doctor during the 1890s was antiseptic ... sterile. The analogy, RESOLUTE:PIGHEADED::ACCOMODATING:FAWNING also appeared on the June test. The sentence completion about remembering the number of days in September and other months was mnemonic. Don't be surprised if those short reading passages count -- they counted in June and on another prior administration (in November 2003 I think). Also, the June exam contained a reading passage about an Eastern immigrant whose parents valued hardwork more than material possessions (the immigrant went to someone's house who had an elegant Oriental rug). On the October exam, I remember having an EXPERIMENTAL analogy question involving IMPECCABLE:IMPROVEMENT."</p>

<p>i think we had the EXACT same test as the americans in june. but im canadian</p>

<p>Thatsme, I think that analogy was in the same section as the short answers, but I could be wrong.</p>

<p>uh oh. then the short passage was NOT the exp section!!!</p>

<p>Whoa, crazy stuff! I didn't know they were allowed to repeat tests like that.
I'll head off to the June Archives, then...</p>

<p>Also, where are you from, Thatsme?</p>

<p>Canada, vancouver. u use msn?</p>

<p>I do. My MSN name is predictable from my user name at this site.</p>

<p>at hotmail?</p>

<p>im on june sat 1 dis</p>

<p>ITS EXACTLY the same. ****</p>

<p>I'm from Toronto, by the way. I was just wondering if it was a Toronto abnormality, since there was some confusion at the test-taking centre today.</p>

<p>Yes, hotmail.</p>

<p>Am I the only person who liked the short passages?</p>

<p>I thought they were kind of cute, myself.</p>
