Your Score Booster will teach you methods that, if followed closely, will help you get the right answer even when you don’t know all the vocabulary words in the question.
The new SAT not only asks students to answer a question but also will require students to find the support for their answer in the passage.
Read a lot. Read fiction (novels) and non-fiction (science, history, biographies, newspaper articles and more.) The more you read, the better you’ll do on the reading section of the SAT.
Your Score Booster can help you boost your reading comprehension and find the main idea of SAT passages. Then we’ll help you tackle the questions. We’ll show you what the questions mean. (Before lessons, students find that some questions are hard to interpret.) We’ll show you why one question might mention line numbers 20-25 and the answer is, surprisingly, in lines 18-19, while other questions might mention lines 20-25, and that’s exactly where the answer is located. Without this understanding of how to tackle the questions, you cannot boost your reading score dramatically.
You don’t necessarily need to start studying SAT or ACT math this early. You could wait until you learn more math in school. But lessons even in 9th grade or earlier would help. Your Score Booster will teach you tricks that you could apply to any multiple-choice tests, even the provincial exams, and, of course, the SAT or ACT. You’ll also learn math concepts before learning them in school, so you’ll be ahead of the curve.
The essay will be optional starting in 2016. It was already optional for the ACT. However, your universities of interest may require the essay.
For the essay, the SAT will include some documents, such as the founding documents of the United States of America, and ask students to write an essay relating to those documents.
It can take a long time to develop skills for writing a good SAT essay. Remember that you have just 25 minutes to write your SAT essay, which is unlike your school essays. You need to use a plethora of SAT words to impress the grader, and you must strongly persuade the reader. An early start for the SAT essay can definitely give you an edge.
For the ACT, you’ll be given three perspectives on the topic, and you’ll need to develop your own perspective on the topic and support your perspective with a well-written essay.
