# SAT Math

<p>What are your techniques for tackling the math section, I've done countless questions and examples but it doesn't come to me, Math is just not built for me, do you know any ideas that would help improve or do i just have to practice practice?</p>

<p>There are only so many types of math problems on the SAT. You should buy a book and memorize the key facts and basic math review. Make sure you get a book that will explain to you, how the answer was solved. If that doesn't help, then I don't know what will.</p>

<p>I agree with contemplation4u. But you can always try blue book problems and then think for yourself about why the correct answer is correct. As a last resort, you can post on here.</p>

<p>Concepts you need to know: exterior angle theorem (saves time), exponent rules, mean median mode, triangle inequality (a line is the shortest distance between 2 points), transformations (alg. 2)</p>

<p>what do you mean by it doesn't come to you?
like you make stupid mistakes
or that you don't get how to do the problems?
feel free to pm me any questions you have</p>

<p>like world problems, I usually start out with the wrong numbers when formulating the answers, and there are so many steps and facets to a problem its confusing.
It doesn' me strike to do this step after this solution regardless of common sense I just can't seem to hit a proper direction when solving, or not sure what the question is asking.</p>

<p>Its mainly the direction i need to start in this troubling me, I can't really explain my situation but when i set up a cohesive reply it will make sense. </p>

<p>now back to practicing math.</p>

<p>sometimes it helps to keep in mind what information they give you and what you need to find. keeping all the units will help keep you from mis reading or instead of like getting the total amount you got the amount per hour or something</p>
