What's tested on the SAT?

Your course will follow the content of the SAT to make sure that you get a chance to review everything you need to know for your upcoming test. Therefore, it's worthwhile to spend some time reviewing what's actually tested on the SAT. The exam was designed with the purpose of helping colleges assess which of their applicants are most prepared to succeed at the collegiate level of study. It is split into three required sections and one optional Essay section. The required SAT sections focus on Math, Writing and Language, and Reading.

The SAT's Reading section has a 65-minute time limit and features 52 multiple-choice questions. The score that you earn for this section will be combined with the Writing and Language section for one score that ranges from 200 to 800 points. This is called the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score. On the Reading section, you'll be asked to read a series of written passages that cover things like literature, historical documents, social science, and science. The questions that you're asked on this section will assess your command of evidence, your ability to identify the meaning of words in the context they're presented, and how well you can analyze selections in social studies and science.

The SAT Writing and Language section has a 35-minute time limit and consists of 44 multiple-choice questions. Similarly to the Reading section, all of the questions on this part of the SAT will be based on a series of written passages. In addition to the skills assessed in the Reading section, this part of the SAT also assesses your understanding of the expression of ideas and standard English conventions.

Finally, the last required test section focuses on Math. Here, you'll be given 80 minutes to answer 58 questions. This is a two-part section that is split based on the questions you're allowed to use a calculator to answer and the ones that you can't use a calculator on. You'll be tested on a variety of math topics, including algebra, data analysis, and introductory advanced math problems.

If you choose to complete the SAT Essay section, then you'll be given 50 minutes to do so. You'll read a passage and then will be asked to write an essay that responds in some way to what you've just read. To perform well in the Essay section, you'll need to be able to craft a compelling essay within a short time frame. You'll be graded based on your use of evidence, the strength of the arguments you make, and the quality of your writing.

Taking a test preparation course is a great way to review the topics you need to know for all of these SAT sections. The following section will explore how a New York City SAT course can help you get more out of your study sessions and improve your understanding of core SAT topics.
