What is the best way to ace the SATs?
Practice paired with tutoring. Practice on your own, and we can go over anything you get wrong and work through why you got it wrong. The key is not just tons of practice, but using that practice to get better by figuring out what went wrong.
What is the difference between the analytical reasoning and the logical reasoning portions of the exam?
Analytical reasoning questions test your ability to analyze information. Also called logic games, these questions are a lot like brain teasers. If you know Tom is taller than Bob and Alice is shorter than Bob, you also know that Tom is taller than Alice. The logic games are all about synthesizing information and yes, there are tricks to these questions that can help you. Logical reasoning is about evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of arguments. Your language skills need to be sharp here to fully grasp all of the implications of the short statements the questions are based on. We can work through how words are used to signal certain answers and why the correct answer is what it is.
What is the rule against perpetuities?
The rule against perpetuities is a common law concept that seeks to limit how long a bequest can last. Basically, the point is to create a cutoff point so that some long dead person's wishes are not binding on a property forever. The rule against perpetuities is used in estate planning and the general rule is that the interest from a bequest must vest within 21 years of a life in being at the creation of the interest. In other words, the interest must vest 21 years after the death of some identifiable person who is alive at the time of the creator's death.
