Strategies for the SAT Reading Test
The Reading Test on the SAT comprises half of your Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score. It consists of 52 questions divided between five different passages, each of which ranges from 500-750 words long. There will be one literature passage, two science passages and two history/social studies passages. Each passage will be followed by 10-11 questions, which will begin with general ideas and become more specific.
You only have 65 minutes to read all the passages and answer all the questions, so it's essential to have a plan! Consider these eight steps to help you conquer the exam.
