Today I will present a few strategies to help you improve your math SAT score. Now, it is likely that, because this website is particularly aimed toward students who perform well in math, your math SAT score is not your area of greatest concern. Whether it is or isn't, I recommend you read these strategies to help ensure a higher score!

1. Do the easy questions first and quickly, but not so quickly that you make careless errors!

2. Plug and chug. Try to plug the answer choices into the problem to find the one that works.

(Note:

- Avoid picking 0, 1, and -1 in general
- If you need to pick an odd number, do not pick 1, -1, 3, or -3
- If you need to pick 2 numbers, pick numbers that are far away from each other
- For percentage problems, the number that is easiest to work with is almost always 100)

3. Look at the answers first, to get an idea of what range your answer should be in.

4. Estimate the answer to check yours.

5. Learn the language:

- Sum, more than = add
- Difference, less than = subtract
- Product, of, times = multiplication
- Twice = 2 times
- Quotient = division
- Squares = exponent
- Is = equals
- A number = a variable such as “x”
- Integer = numbers without fractions or decimals (…-2, -1, 0, 1, 2…)
- Consecutive integers = x + (x+1) + (x+2)…
- Consecutive odd or even integers = x + (x+2) + (x+4)…

I hope these tips help you raise (or maintain!) your score!
