What content areas should I review over the course of my Cleveland SAT prep?

The SAT has three mandatory, multiple-choice sections: Reading, Writing/Language, and Math. Your Reading and Writing/Language scores are combined into a single number between 200-800, which is then added to your Math score on the same scale to produce your final composite score on the SAT.

In addition, there is an optional Essay on the exam. Some colleges and universities may require applicants submitting an SAT score to include an Essay grade, so you may have to take it. If you do, your work is graded on a scale from 6-24 and reported separately from your performance on the rest of the test.

Let's take a closer look at the material covered on each segment of the exam:

1. Reading

The SAT's Reading section consists of 52 questions over 65 minutes. All of the questions are based on reading passages, as this section is designed to measure a test-taker's reading comprehension and critical reasoning skills. Passages are drawn from a variety of areas, including contemporary and classic literature, the Founding period of American history, social sciences like psychology and economics, and scientific subjects like physics and Earth science.

2. Writing/Language

The SAT's Writing and Language section contains 44 questions over 35 minutes. Items on this section measure a test-taker's command of English language conventions such as punctuation, grammar, and sentence structure. You are also evaluated on your ability to utilize context clues to define unfamiliar words and identify how an author could improve the persuasiveness of their claims.

3. Math

The SAT's Math section contains 58 questions over 80 minutes, but it's actually divided into subsections based on whether you are permitted to use a calculator or not. For the calculator subsection, you have 55 minutes to answer 38 questions. For the no-calculator subsection, you have 25 minutes to answer 20 questions. Both subsections are designed to measure your analytical thinking, quantitative problem-solving, and familiarity with algebraic concepts.

4. Essay

The SAT's Essay section lasts 50 minutes. You are asked to evaluate another author's argument, including how they use evidence, reasoning, and stylistic choices to make their case. This section evaluates your written communication and argumentation skills. You are scored on your piece's organization, tone, style, grammar, and analysis, so it's important to put your best possible work on the page.

What are the advantages of each of the Cleveland SAT preparation options available to me?

As noted above, we can help you find a Cleveland SAT prep class or a private instructor to help you pursue your goals. If you choose a class, you'll study on our live virtual platform that provides an in-person classroom experience in your favorite study spot. We vet every teacher we partner with, so you can count on a great communicator who really knows their stuff when it comes to the SAT. Asking for help is also as easy as raising your hand, so you can seek clarification before a misunderstanding has an opportunity to spiral out of control.

Working with other students can also foster a collaborative learning environment that helps everyone improve their understanding of SAT subjects. You can exchange test-taking strategies to fall back on if you get stuck on a question. For instance, there is no penalty for guessing on the SAT. You are often best-served by eliminating any answer choices you can and then simply guessing if you're stumped. This way, you have an opportunity to read every question on the exam. Sharing your class with other students also allows you to split the cost, making test prep more affordable than it otherwise would be.

While you can arrange private study time with your class's teacher, a private instructor may be a better option for you if you want more individualized attention. A private educator can design study sessions around your preferred learning style to make it easier to retain the information. There is also no curriculum to follow with private instruction, allowing your needs to set the pace of every session. For instance, a student who excels in Reading can concentrate on other areas during their study sessions.

We also try to make all of our services as convenient as possible. For example, we offer two- and four-week class sessions to make it easier to find something that works for you. Likewise, we start new classes every week so that it's always a great time to get started. Similarly, our electronic Live Learning Platform allows you to meet with your tutor anywhere with a stable internet connection for maximal flexibility. You're also in complete control over when your study sessions take place so that you don't need to give up any activities you enjoy just for SAT prep!
