**UPDATE 15 MARCH 2012** A great commenter told me that my first SAT question in the video below is ambiguous. I totally agree with her. So, instead of updating the video, I’ll just update the question here: “By approximately what percent OF HIS ORIGINAL WEIGHT would Craig have to gain back to get to his original weight?” It’s funny, because now that I think about it, it might make MORE sense to ask by what percent of his NEW WEIGHT, leading to ~50%, but the point of the video is the same (IE. Recognize what a silly person might think and try to eliminate those answer choices before rocking the math.)**
Okay, so I need to be 100% clear right now. I am super, super, duper, excited about today’s lesson. Normally, in these videos, I just give you some information on HOW to do certain things. Today, I’m going to really break down some tricky questions and show you a KILLER SAT strategy for doing well. My words on this page will be light, because the video speaks for itself, but I do need to introduce it so you and the engines know what I am talking about.
If the SAT was simply a math, reading, and writing test, you would have to do complex math problems and analyze poetry. But it is not, and you don’t. If I wanted to test your arithmetic, I’d ask: What is 1 + 1? But, the SAT doesn’t want to test your arithmetic. The SAT wants to test your logic and reading comprehension, and it does that through math.
Because that has been established, it is important for you to see WHERE the SAT attempts to mislead you so you can constantly move in a smart, dedicated way towards you goal. This is a mixture of strategy and technique, and in this revealing video, I show you exactly how the SAT writers attempt to confuse you.
How did you like this shorter post? It’s an experiment in amazing, I know. Comment below and let me know what you think. Thanks!
