The wise words of Stacey Howe-Lott were extremely helpful on SAT #4.  Putting aside all of the grammar and math I learned this month, here are her test taking tips that I found most useful:

  • Cross OUT the wrong answers — as in, put an actual line through the wrong answers. I used to just put an X through the letter of the answer I thought was wrong because I was afraid I might need to see it again.  Wrong.  Cross it out.  Getting them out of your line of vision makes the right answer pop.
  • Circle the “EXCEPT” word in the backwards questions (you know what I mean).
  • Think of your answer, then see if any of the SAT answers match what you thought.
  • Math: Plug in numbers, back solve, look for patterns…….All HELPFUL!
