- Getting an 800 on the Math section of the SAT is no herculean task as long as you familiarize yourself with the material well ahead of time and get a good number of hours of practice in. Still, many struggle to achieve this, and often the reason are careless mistakes made in a mad rush to finish the test.
- Work hard. Obvious enough? I surmised as much. The key is to work hard in areas you are struggling with, instead of strengthening yourself in areas you know you are already proficient with.
- Self-analysis is paramount for the SAT test-takers. Track your progress every step of the way, but try to take a multifaceted approach to this; work in regulated time frames, calculate your scores after every practice test and pinpoint all your weak links.
- Understand yourself. Decide which kind of learning style is best suited to your tendencies and/or needs. You may be a visual, aural or kinesthetic learner, or you may be none of the aforementioned.
