Sentence Completion

For SAT Sentence Completion, you are going to have to become familiar with filling in the blanks. There are 19 questions, each question contains one or two blank spaces where students must find the best answer choice that will allow the sentence to make complete sense. Sounds easy right? However, when your test date rolls around and time, anxiety and other exam stresses raise their ugly heads, a simple task such as this can start to become tricky. There are some sample resources for your to practice later in this section. Once you have mastered them, why not create some of your own.

Reading Comprehension

In this section the hint is in the title, you will be reading and doing a lot of it. Reading Comprehension is also known as Critical Reading and it questions a students ability to understand a passage and then answer questions on the basis of what is stated and implied in that passage.  Students must read the passage first so that they can identify the main idea extract features such as the author’s tone and attitude. Passages on the SAT vary in length from short paragraphs that take 3 minutes to read to longer paragraphs that take 15 minutes to read. There are 48 questions in total that students must answer. Like any test, make sure to read the directions before and allocate the appropriate time to each test.
