SAT success is coachable.
Contrary to popular belief, the SAT is not an intelligence
Test. It is a measure of demonstrated Math and Verbal skills.
These skills can be learned.
SAT content is limited. Questions
on the SAT are devised out of a relatively small pool of Math
& Verbal content areas. Learn the range of the content areas
and your preparation becomes focused and easier.
SAT scoring is predictable.
Standardized tests measure all students against the same standard.
On the SAT, this means that if you take the test in November,
you are measured against the students who took the test in June.
Of course you aren't taking the SAME test they took. But both
your tests are standardized, and (in theory) you should be equally
likely to do as well on one test as another.
The SAT is an opportunity. Colleges
use the SAT as a common yardstick by which to measure candidates.
See the SAT for what it is--a great opportunity to strut your
stuff and prove that you are eminently qualified for the college
of your dreams. With adequate preparation, it really isn't hard
