Develop SAT Concepts
Once you have your SAT overview in place, you need to dig deeper into the individual subjects which are featured in each node/ strand. To do this, take one subject/ topic from your overview and focus on this area by starting a new Mind Map and building out that subject.
When you do this for all sections of your subject curriculum, you will have a comprehensive set of study notes you can refer to at any time. This will also allow you to understand your curriculum in much greater detail than before.
