Helen’s handy hints – suggestions for study for the SAT
Use your computer and the internet intelligently:
1. Set your homepage to a daily newspaper, e.g., Globe and Mail and make time to read one article a day. You can choose a short article or an article from the sports section. This will greatly enhance your vocabulary
2. Check www.collegeboard.com once a week to keep up-to-date with SAT news. Sign up for SAT Question of the Day to have it sent to your e-mailbox. If there is any type of question that you find challenging, print it, save in a binder and review regularly.
3. On a word processor, begin your own dictionary of new words as you come across them. Do this in alphabetical order. Check for synonyms. Your word processor can do this for you. Have a friend or family member quiz you on these.
Reading the classics is essential to learning how to interpret complex sentences, a skill that is crucial to success in the SAT. However, you don’t have to wade through long novels like David Copperfield and War and Peace! Choose something short!
