The new SAT exam is more focused on what you learn in high school and what you need to succeed in college. The same habits and choices that lead to success in school will help you get ready for the SAT. This means there is no more memorizing words or facts that you will never use again. The SAT Test contains multiple-choice and grid-in tests in four areas: Reading, writing and language, math (with no calculator), math (with calculator). SAT’s writing test is optional and will not affect your composite score.
