Overview

ARCO Panic Plan for the New SAT has been completely rewritten to reflect the changes to theSAT. A brand-new SAT will be administered for the first time in March 2005. Changes to the test include: the elimination of analogy questions, as well as the math quantitative comparisons. Also, the verbal sections are now called “critical reading”. In addition, the new SAT will include short reading passages and math will be expanded to cover Algebra II along with algebra I and geometry.

Crystal (SAT Math Flash), provides test-taking tips and practice exercises for all areas of the new SAT I exam. The book includes How to Answer Sentence Completion Questions, How to Answer Critical Reading Questions, and Exercises for Basic Math, Fractions, Exponents, Square Roots, Geometry, Algebra I, Algebra II, and more.

  • Updated for the new SAT with practice for all types of questions that appear on the exam: sentence completions, critical reading comprehension, math multiple choice, and grid-ins
  • Two-week study plan and checklist
  • Vocabulary and math reviews
