How do you prepare for SAT I and SAT II - URGENTWatch
For those of you who want to study in the US I want to ask you a very important question: How the h**l you prepare for the SAT I ? Do you prepare by yourself or do you attend any courses? I really need some info, and I'd appreciate any help. Telephone numbers of companies and tutors etc etc. (Just except Kaplan, as I know that their course is 700 quid).
Many thanks in advance,
I found that sat 2 isn't a problem since we usually take the subject at school. i had lots of problems with sat 1 verbal *thank god it's over!!* (especially since english isnt my native language). hmm.. best to read a lot of books (e.g jane austen books: full of sat vocabs!) to increase you vocab, and do practice questions --> use '10 Real SATs', it's quite useful. good luck!
What year are you entering uni? Its a bit late for 2004
No I'm going next year but a goot SAT prep takes a lot of time, and now that I have some spare cash I need to know what am I gonna need for the prep before that money flies away for something else.
English isn't my native language either. So Kosine, would you be that kind to tell me how you learnt the vocab apart from reading books - e.g. memory cards or something else?
P.S.: I also think SAT II is ok, but SAT I Verbal is probably the only exam in my life I think I'm not gonna do good at.
i did some kind of vocab mind maps. i put words that have similar meanings in one large groups and memorize their general meaning. and then, connect this group with another large group which is the antonym, etc.
also, know words that come from the same root; some parts of these words are similar to each other and have similar meaning. This helps you decode the meaning of a word. oh, also know the meaning of suffixes and prefixes.
(somehow, memory cards dont work for me , it really depends on each person, just try different methods and pick the best one)
still, the verbal part also has reading sections, so reading is still on top of the list
