The SAT Math sections are the 3rd and 4th sections of SAT. Firstly, you are NOT allowed to use your calculator during the first 25-minute SAT Math section. Secondly, you CAN use your calculator during the next 55-minute SAT Math section.
Here are 6 tips to remember if you want to ace SAT Math:
- First and foremost, the SAT has a no-calculator section. Learn to accurately perform basic calculations without a calculator. This includes multiplying, dividing, and sketching the graph of a line.
2. Practice using a sample test with an answer sheet and remember to time yourself. This will enable you to score the test and work on your weak topics. In addition, you can create an effective study plan.
3. Analyze each topic of the SAT Math section. Memorize facts and formulas. Memorizing them effectively will improve your ability to find the solution to any question. Moreover, the ability to identify solutions quickly will allow you to move through the section in an orderly manner.
4. Familiarize yourself with different types of SAT Math questions. Practice is essential in order to do this. During your preparation process, you are likely to make mistakes and that is okay! Go over the question to see what you missed and solve it again.
5. You must complete the test to get a high score. The later part of the section is likely to have tougher questions. You may need extra time to solve them. Ensure that you time your practice sessions. Ideally, you should be able to take a minute to a minute and a half per question. More importantly, this will help you become systematic before the day of the test.
6. Look out for careless mistakes and try to minimize them. This is crucial for SAT and any other standardized test. Additionally, you are more likely to make mistakes because you are being timed. Be aware but don’t get distressed by it.
