Trebor.
04.08.13  Remember when we had a contest to see who could get to 5 reviews first lol

04.08.13  Did he struggle because he wasn't sure how to count to 5?

04.08.13  there's no easy secret to get the score you want
buy a book, put the effort in, and then the sat's become an absolute joke

04.08.13  Any recs as far as self instruction goes?
I need to brush up on algebra and geometry.
I never went higher than geometry so I'm clueless about Trig, Algebra II.

04.08.13  if you need to brush up on algebra and geometry, i don't think i can be of help. what i do know is that you're not alone, and marketers are smart, which means there's a book that's directed right towards you. maybe it'll take a bit of digging. if it doesn't exist, maybe buy a normal math sat prep book and just start from the beginning. if you're stuck, google something and try to get the mechanism behind it?
i dunno, i just say find a book and start studying asap. you prob don't even need alg 2/trig to get like a 500/800 but don't quote me on that

04.08.13  smoke a quarter right beforehand

04.08.13  I'll definitely do that for the SAT. I've heard it's a bit easier if grammar is one of your strong points. I've also heard the math section is a little easier.
I know the ACT has alg 2 and trig though.

04.08.13  I don't know what Algebra II is, but it seems important. The only way to crack those standardised
tests in general is practice. I got a 770 on the old math SAT and 700 on the old math SAT II by just
doing one test a day for a week.

04.08.13  The more you practice the format the more comfortable and faster you get at solving the problems. Solving the problems (or even figuring out that you don't know the answer quickly) used to be just as important as getting the answer right. I don't know how it is now.

04.08.13  Algebra II is the most important subject to go back and become knowledgeable at, mathwise.
