Question:

What are the best ways to study for the SAT?

Answer:

The best way to study for the SAT is by taking official practice tests. These questions simulate the exam much more closely than questions crafted by 3rd party test prep services, and allow you to identify patterns in the way the College Board writes questions. You can also get a sense of your strengths and weaknesses on the test, and identify areas of improvement. After each practice test, you can go through the answers to see what you got wrong and make sure you understand why before moving on. Outside of practice tests, studying vocabulary lists, reviewing math fundamentals, and writing additional practice essays are also important ways to study for the SAT.

Question:

Sample college application essay prompt: Based on your experiences in high school, what advice would you give to a high school freshman? Answer in 200 words or less.

Answer:

High school is a time of enormous growth, and with it comes pressure from every direction – a pressure to morph yourself to society’s expectations. Throughout my four years of high school, I experienced that pressure myself and saw its effects on my peers. Today, if I could give advice to a high school freshman, I would utter these famous words from Hamlet: “This above all: to thine own self be true.” Upon entering high school, the first piece of advice you are given is to be “well-rounded,” because the key to “success” and college admissions is an assortment of clubs, sports, and volunteer hours. In 9th grade, I joined a swim team, trying to check off a box by being an athlete. Yet, sports have never been my talent or pleasure, and after a few months, I quit. After watching so many of my peers try and fail to match society’s expectations – taking challenging courses in subjects they hated, or striving to become doctors when their real talents lay in acting or writing – I learned that I could only be successful by pouring myself into my true passions: music, debate, and writing.

Question:

What are the three forms of democratic government with regard to executive-legislative relations, and what is an example of a country with each system?

Answer:

With regard to executive-legislative relations, governments can take three forms: parliamentary, presidential, or semi-presidential. In a parliamentary system, the executive, typically called the prime minister, is a member of the majority party or coalition in the legislature. This executive is the head of government, but not the head of state. The head of state is a usually monarch or other type of ceremonial leader with little political power. An example of a parliamentary government can be seen in the United Kingdom. In a presidential system, the executive, often called the president, is both the head of government and head of state. He is usually directly elected by the people, and is not a member of the legislature. One country with a presidential system is the United States. In a semi-presidential system, there are two executives with meaningful power: a head of state and a head of government. The head of state is usually a directly elected president, while the head of government is typically a parliamentary prime minister. Though the precise division of power varies between countries, typically the head of government is responsible for managing the legislature while the head of state handles other executive functions like foreign affairs. One country with a semi-presidential system is France.
