A student’s SAT score is often the most important piece of their college application. While grade point averages can vary wildly based on schools, teachers, course selection, and other factors, colleges can look at SAT scores and know that each student took the same SAT test under the same conditions on the same SAT scoring scale. This allows them to more directly compare students’ college preparedness. For this reason, a high SAT score can open doors to college scholarships, honors programs, and acceptance to prestigious universities, while a lower SAT score may be the reason that a student is not admitted or placed on a college admissions waitlist. While many factors are also very important in the college admissions process--grade point average and extracurricular activities, for example--the SAT is the single biggest opportunity for a high school junior or senior to make a giant leap toward their academic future.
Because the SAT can put so much pressure on a single day’s performance, it is important for students to be properly prepared. Remember: you take the SAT on one day, but effective SAT preparation generally takes several weeks, if not months. While it is intended to be a test of how prepared a student is for college, in most cases the SAT is even more a test of a student’s ability to prepare for the SAT itself. Fortunately, Veritas Prep has an expert-led SAT prep course that can help students master SAT skills and strategies and be confident in their ability to maximize their SAT score on test day.
Live SAT Classes
The SAT test prep classes offered by Veritas Prep challenge you in a way that can help you reach past your previous limits. Classes take place online and are led by experienced, dynamic SAT instructors who themselves achieved an SAT score in the top 1% of all test takers. Our SAT classes maximize student engagement by offering several modes of participation and by regularly calling on students to both answer and ask questions in real time. Online SAT classes are not merely convenient; by making participation seamless and continuous, they are the most effective way to keep students focused and engaged in their SAT preparation.
SAT Learning Resources
Veritas Prep SAT prep classes also come with a suite of resources that serve as everything a student would need to ace the SAT. Every student gets a copy of Veritas Prep’s Conquering the SAT textbook, full of advanced strategies and thorough content. And all classes come with access to Veritas Prep On Demand, a series of pre-recorded SAT lessons--hosted by graduates of Yale and Brown--that supplement classroom learning while giving students the opportunity to review any SAT concept at any time. Veritas Prep also provides nine full-length SAT practice tests for students to get familiar with the pacing, timing, and overall challenge of an actual SAT test day. The Veritas Prep SAT prep course also comes with daily, live online office hours in which an SAT tutor is available to answer homework questions and provide individualized advice.
We also know that your SAT score is your gateway to the college admissions process, so your SAT prep course comes with a free, five-session “College Admissions Essentials” course. Hosted by former admissions officers from elite schools like Princeton and Yale, this course provides strategies for school selection, the personal statement and other essays, financial aid and college scholarships, and other critical elements of the college admissions process.
Discovering the SAT
The SAT has sections on Reading, Writing, and Math, as well as an optional Essay section. The exam is scored on a 1600-point scale, with the SAT Reading and Writing measures combining for a score up to 800, and the SAT Math measure representing the other 800 possible points. The essay score is calculated separately and does not impact a student’s total SAT score out of 1600.
On test day, students will face the SAT Reading section first. SAT Reading consists of 52 questions over five reading passages, with 65 minutes to complete the section. Of the five SAT Reading passages a student will see, two will be science-themed, one will be from the genre of social studies (e.g. economics, sociology, psychology), one will be a piece of literature, and one will be a “great global conversation” piece (e.g. a section of a United States founding document or landmark speech in U.S. or world history). In addition to reading, students should be prepared to interpret tables and graphs on the SAT Reading section.
Next, students will face the SAT Writing and Language section, a 35-minute, 44-question section spanning four written passages. This section tests grammar, rhetoric, writing style, and logic. Like the SAT Reading section, the SAT Writing and Language section also contains charts, tables, and graphs.
The next two sections comprise the SAT Math measure. First students will see a 25-minute, 20-question No Calculator math section. Notably, the questions on this section do not require the use of a calculator so students should not be alarmed, but this is a section worthy of some specific SAT math preparation so that students are ready to tackle it without their trusty calculator. The SAT Math sections heavily prize algebra skills, along with questions on geometry, word problems, arithmetic, and basic trigonometry.
The following SAT Math section permits students to use a calculator, and spans 38 questions in 55 minutes. On each of the two SAT Math sections, most questions are multiple choice (select one correct answer out of four possibilities) but there are 13 total SAT math questions that are “grid-ins,” or questions for which students have to supply the correct answer themselves with no multiple choice (and then bubble in the numerals corresponding to their answer).
Finally, the fifth section of the SAT is the optional essay, for which students will have 50 minutes to write an essay analyzing an author’s argument. Importantly, the SAT essay is a very particular assignment in which the goal is to analyze someone else’s argument, not for the student to persuade a reader of his or her own point of view. Before sitting for the SAT essay, it is helpful for a student to prepare by writing a handful of these essays to fully embrace and understand the unique format.
