iFrame is not supported!


Key Takeaways


  • Maximum scores on the English section come from going beyond the status quo procedure of using your ear to see which option sounds the best
  • Your answer choice must be selected based on grammatical correctness and contextual relevance, not whether it sounds good or bad
  • The SAT knows that students will default to reading the answer choices into the passage, and there are questions designed to trick anyone using that strategy
