Question:

What is your best tip for mastering SAT Reading?

Lindsay M.
Answer:

If you're a pretty quick reader, take the time to read the whole passage. Pay attention to how the reading makes you feel. The SAT likes to ask a lot of vague questions about the passage tone and what sentences do or don't belong in the passage based on that. Those questions are answered based on word connotation (the feelings/ideas associated with the word, rather than just the dictionary definition of the word). If you've read the entire passage and "just feel" that Option A is the right answer on questions like these, it's because you're subconsciously picking up on word connotations. Go with your gut, answer Option A, and move on.

Question:

Do I need pre-calculus or calculus for ACT Math?

Lindsay M.
Answer:

Nope! The ACT Math section only tests up to Algebra 2/Trigonometry. If you haven't taken those classes yet, there's no need to worry! A lot of ACT Math can be "spot-learned" in tutoring.

Question:

5(3x - 2) - 12 = 7(-4x + 3)

Lindsay M.
Answer:

1. Simplify the equation. 15x - 10 - 12 = -28x + 21 15x - 22 = -28x + 21 2. Move both X's to the same side of the equation. 15x - 22 + 28x = -28 x + 28x + 21 3. Simplify again. 43x - 22 = 21 4. Move all numerical values to the side of the equation opposite X. 43x - 22 + 22 = 21 + 22 5. Simplify again. 43x = 43 6. Divide both sides of the equation by 43, so the coefficient of X is 1. X = 1
