    AoA, Xtremites!

    This thread is intended for all those who may have problems related to the SAT. Members here have made numerous posts regarding testing centres, registration dates, the importance of the SAT, etc. This post is not for the aforementioned issues. Instead, post specific questions related to the subject matter here and have your doubts cleared. Your problems may relate to any of the three SAT sections:
    • Critical Reading
    • Writing Skills
    • Math
    Happy posting and good luck! :)

    Register as soon as possible, because seats are only limited.
    Yes, you can.

    hii.
    well, regarding vocabulary you can learn the words here: http://www.xtremepapers.com/papers/SAT/1000 Common SAT Words.pdf. but i have heard that this is an old list. however, words are words and it's best knowing as many as you can. Also, buy the Barron's Hot Words book..thats ought to help you out a great deal!
    now, for the passage-based reading, i recommend going throw the passage thoroughly and understanding what is written. look up the words that you do not understand. many books tell you not to do this as you are likely to waste your time, but i'd say while practicing put in as much concentration as you can. once you know how the passages are written and are better at the vocabulary part, no time shall be wasted.
    good luck. :)

    I guess you should go with Grade 12; it probably doesn't matter. :)
    Since you're appearing for the SAT, I suggest you edit your signature to: "When you sit alone, you sit with your past." You're = you are. :)

    I'm curious as to why everyone here is doing the SAT. I mean why doesn't anyone else do the ACT? It's an equivalent qualification to the SAT-I and you don't receive guessing penalties! The science section in it is easy too and plus, the writing section is optional and most universities in my country don't require the writing ^.^ Please pardon me if it seems like I'm posting something irrelevant but I didn't know where I could post this, I'm just curious as to why no one's considering the ACT.

    You need some serious guidance.
    Go to Collegeboard.com to see the paper pattern etc.

    One thing I am not getting is that when registering for sat paper I am asked for my High school which is neccessary to fill.

    Unfortunately the list available on site doesnot have my school name??? there are only a few schools there. So nowe how can i move further without filling that portion. I need severe help. From those who have given sat papers
