I have found the easiest way to study or prepare for the SAT exams is to make flash cards of words you do not know or quite understand also I find it helpful to Study Roots of words so that you can break down a word that you may not otherwise understand...I hope this was helpful

The magazine "Harper" provides plenty of SAT vocabulary and passages for critical reading.

Thanks that was really helpful advice.

I also find that i always have bias when reading the passage. Try to think in a neutral point of view helped me get more correct answers.

Studying prefixes and suffixes will help you figure out words you don't know or, at the very least, take a better educated guess and be able to eliminate some choices.

I came here to talk about what I experienced for last few months.
I thought I should achieve my SAT goal before getting into grade 12. (as many ppl do think so)
At first, I was shocked with my first SAT comprehension score. I depressed a lot that I could not succeed in this college competition. So I just go over all the test practices at random. However, this method didn't work for me.
I was just stressed out, but no progress at all.
Thus I decided to get over from the basis. After asking around, I got a book called "SAT Critical Reading Game" written by James Hong.
I first was attracted with the word "game" for the "hard task" that I was struggling with.
I wondered how this book would let my reading comprehension to be developed. To be honest, I doubted.
However, as I study with the book's guide, I realized reading needs not only one's basic knowledge and skill but also a strategic technique to find out what the examiner wants. This book led me how to solve the problems more easily like a "game".
I would recommend this SAT reading "game" book by James Hong to all of you.
It not only guided me not only how to solve reading problems but also the way I accomplish my future for college what I wished for a long time:)

Camille_c is merely spamming every part of this board with James Hong promotions. He and his toadies have already been banned from College Confidential, fwiw. Mods, I recommend following suit.
