There are two weeks to go before the SAT. No time for a prep course. Not even enough to work through one of those big test-prep guides. For the student who has unfortunately waited until the last minute to start practicing for the big test (and that's probably most students), it's usually panic time. Crash Course for the SAT offers a solution. At a slimmed-down 208 pages, it provides the ten most essential steps to scoring high on the SAT. They are:
-- Step I Do the Right Number of Problems
-- Step 2 Master the Process of Elimination
-- Step 3 Guess Aggressively
-- Step 4 Know Your Math Definitions
-- Step 5 Take Me Out to the Ballpark (arithmetic)
-- Step 6 Plugging In (algebra)
-- Step 7 What Else Do I Know? (Geometry)
-- Step 8 Speak For Yourself (Sentence Completions)
-- Step 9 Make a New Sentence (Sentence Completions)
-- Step 10 Treasure Hunt (Critical Reading)

More than 100 practice questions are included as well, featuring detailed answer explanations that analyze each answer choice. With all of the essential test-taking techniques found in our more comprehensive SAT guide, plus practice exercises, Crash Course for the SAT is the perfect last-minute study alternative.
