SAT Subject Tests: Math
- Read the text and do as many practice problems as possible. Check
your answers with those in the back of the book or with a friend. If
you're really lost, look at the sample problems or ask a teacher. If
you're at the stage where you're still a little unsure with the
material, practice all the types of problems that will be on the test
until you know them cold. Once you've done all of the problems that
the book offers and you think that you know what you need to
know.well, then go over your notes and read in the textbook to make
sure there isn't some tiny rule that you've overlooked.
- If you have to study formulas, do that at the beginning of the
study period so that after doing all those practice problems you'll
know them. I recommend that you write them on the top of your homework
or classwork as you're learning the material and then test yourself to
see if you can do each problem without looking up at the formula. By
doing this, you'll be surprised how quickly you'll learn them.
- Make a study sheet to look at right before the test. Put formulas
and sample problems on it so that you can have one last study session
during the passing period before the test. While you're writing the
study sheet, you'll reinforce your knowledge of the concepts as well.
