Which math SATII to take? Big dilemma inside...

<p>I took Ic the first time and got a measly 640. I've heard that the scale on IIc is much more forgiving and easy to score high on if you know your stuff but the fact is I'm not sure I do. I passed with a B in Pre-Calc and I found it difficult to remember all of the concepts for the final in the class. I'm just overall not very solid in math and don't want to blow my last chance taking the IIc if I won't do well. </p>

<p>Very generally what kind of things do I need to know for IIc? I heard that a TI-89 with a few programs can help a lot but I don't have a TI-89. Is it possible to do very bad if you took all the classes and passed with decent grades but are not solid with the concepts?</p>

<p>I'm in the high 700's on the SATI math so I'm fundamentally set with Ic I believe but the small mistakes on Ic hurt a lot. </p>

<p>What would you recommend for a person like me? I'm not by any means bad at math, and I'm probably being overly cautious but I just can't afford any wrong choices at this point.</p>

<p>Thanks A LOT to any one who can help me out, my appreciation cannot be translated into words..</p>

<p>bump, anyone?</p>

<p>IIC has more trig, limits and some basic calculus. if youre in a calc class and doing decent youll probably be fine for IIC.</p>

<p>why not retake Ic?</p>

<p>Unless you have no clue, its definitely better to take IIC. You can't miss a single one on IC for an 800, while there is a massive curve on IIC. 10% of people who take IIC get 800, while fewer than 1% get 800 on the IC. And, despite being easier, it looks better.</p>

<p>Buy a book that has both tests (the Princeton Review does, I think), and try both tests. See on which one you get higher scores.</p>


<p>It's because I've seen that most people that take IIc get above the 700's whereas fewer do on the Ic. I just want to make sure I take the test I can do better on. I'm in AP Calc right now and doing pretty good, I'm leaning towards IIc at present.</p>


<p>Thanks for the stats.</p>


<p>I think I'm going to do just that. I'll probably do better on the IIc, I'm just paranoid and want to make sure I make the right decision since it's the last time I'll be taking the test.</p>

<p>Thanks for the help guys..</p>

<p>Look at the real sat ii's book; take the sat iic test and see what you get; and perhaps grab a book to study and take quizzes from..if that doesn't work it, go w/ teh ic</p>

<p>Teal is giving you great advice. Get some prep books and do some practice tests.</p>
