**Question**

I am good in maths, i get perfect on most of my test, but on the SAT Math sections i only manage to get close to 600. I wanna get at least 750 - 800 on math. I practice a lot but somethings the answer to the question doesn't hit until after spending 2 minutes on it. Somethings I run out of time and other times the problems seems to abstract so How do I increase my score?

**Answer**

The best thing is to answer all the questions you know you can answer the fastest then go back to the harder ones. It should save you a little time.

**Question**

What type of maths is on the sat? for example, is it geometry, algebra I, algebra II, or pre-calculus. could someone please help me out. thank you for your answer.

**Answer**

The new SAT covers all of these topics, but the emphasis is still on algebra and geometry.

**Question**

How to avoid silly mistakes on sat math?. I've been practicing several sat papers and still making silly mistakes on math section. Any tips or suggestions on how I can avoid them?

**Answer**

Three ways of lessening the problem though.

1.) If you can guesstimate quickly, then use this as a common sense check. For example, Lets say that I was finding the volume of a box that was 32*21*9. I could guesstimate using 30*20*10 or 6000. If my number comes up as much different, I did something wrong.

2.) Many algebra problems, you can plug your answers back in and see if they work.

3.) Mark difficult problems for review. So go on with the test and when you finished all of the questions, go back and check the ones you have marked. This takes your mind off the question for awhile. Sometimes just looking at something with a fresh pair of eyes makes mistakes more apparent.

Also do not stress out about the test. If you do badly you can take it again and in the end it is your knowledge not your test scores that will get you the job.

How to study for the SAT math section if your not good at math?. I know i will do well in critical reading and writing but math is just so hard for me. My brain freezes. Also i have a IEP in math. which means I'm really bad math. and i need a 475+ on the math to get into the college i want. Any advice?

**Answer**

Yes, get an algebra book with problems at the end of each chapter. Make sure there is a key at the back of the book that has answers for some of the problems. Only do the problems that have answers. Do as many problems as you can, but don't rush. Do each problem until you get the right answer, and then make sure you understand how you got to that right answer, Also, you can do two little things on the side to help. One, practice your good old times tables, 1 X 9 = 9, 2 X 5 = 10, 3 X 4 = 12, 8 X 7 = 56, etc... Get some index cards for this. Practice these until you can do them really fast. This will help you from making little math errors during the test. Also, always remember PEMDAS. (P)arenthesis, (E)xponentials, (M)ultiplication, (D)ivision, (A)ddition, (S)ubtraction. The order of operations. This always applies. Practice it.

How can I bring up my SAT Math score from 620 to 720 in 3 months?. I would like to take the SAT in May, but my SAT math score has been bugging me. As of now, I have nothing in my day to do but study, so can you please advise me on a regimen that maybe you have done, or something that I can do?

**Answer**

I experienced a very similar situation when I prepared for and took the SAT. Here's how I raised my score in Math: practice, practice, practice.

I spent hours completing problems in prep books (the official SAT guide, Princeton Review, etc.) the week before D-Day until I ingrained every type of problem presented on the test into my mind. The SAT is all about becoming familiar with the test and figuring out what the questions are actually asking-- this test does not measure your intelligence in mathematics. In essence, it can be learned.

Here is how I reviewed all of the basic material covered on the test: I downloaded an ipod app called SAT Math Prep for my ipod touch; I studied each section in the app's curriculum by writing out each problem and solution (although tedious, writing out each question and answer helped reinforce the concepts); and, I reviewed each section I was still semi-unfamiliar with or forgot the day before the test.

No matter how you review the concepts for the exam, make sure to take practice tests. I cannot say this enough: practice, practice, practice. The more practice exams you take, the better the test taker you will become. Getting a good score on the math section is not about always knowing all of the math. Learning how to pace yourself through each section and how to guess and check for plug in solutions efficiently can make the difference between a 690 and a 720.

Two final math hints: always make sure to underline what the question is asking for--to make sure you answer the question being asked--and be sure double check your answers. These may seem obvious, but there is nothing great about receiving a lower score than you deserve because you forgot to square a solution or because you forgot to answer the entire question--meaning you completed part of the problem correctly but unconsciously did not answer the question asked.

Also, do not just study for the math section. In fact, study even more for the reading section. Although colleges do not say this, they value a high verbal score (reading score) more than a high math score because higher verbal scores are harder to achieve. In terms of the writing section, make sure to write a prolific and logical essay.

How can I best improve my SAT Math section?

I got my SAT scores online today. (First time taking them)

I got a 1780

Critical Reading:630

Math:460

Writing:690

as you can see, math KILLED my chances of reaching my goal. How can I improve my math score for next time around, are there any specific formulas repeated on every test that i should know?

**Answer**

The best advice I can offer you is to just keep practicing...buy SAT review books and keep taking practice tests, and for whatever questions you get wrong, figure out why you got it wrong. Anybody dedicated to improving their math score would do that - practice does make perfect. Also things like the Pythagorean Theorem are a must.

**Question**

How do I do well on SAT Math?. I am aiming for 700+ on SAT Math. What are some of the best websites or books for doing good on the Math Section?. What are some general tips?. Is there anywhere I can take a FREE pretest to see how well I'll do before studying?.

**Answer**

Basically, once you have take Geometry, all you can do is hope that you don't make careless mistakes. I use Princeton Review and Kaplan books, and practice does help. When you take the real test, be sure to check every answer at least once.
