How can I get good at SSAT Verbal?
No one likes SSAT Verbal, not even its own family. To improve at a such a loathed section, you must learn at least 12,000 high-level English vocab words. If you don't have time for that, learns prefixes, suffixes, and stems. Also, get high-powered vocab lists of the most frequently occurring words to get the most out of your study time.
What can I do to prepare for SAT Reading?
Read old texts. There are plenty of primary source documents available at the library of congress. Some of these texts might even actually show up on the exam someday. And, even if they don't, familiarity with the subject matter, especially issues related to early American history, will help you understand related texts, events, and ideas.
How is ACT different from others exams?
Time, time, time. The strict, very ungenerous time limits of the ACT, especially of its Reading and Science sections, are widely regarded as its primary challenge. Students must put a sense of the time pressure into their bone marrow and take plenty of practice tests to prepare for pacing problems.
