The SAT is a 3 hour multiple-choice
exam that tests basic math and verbal skills. In addition, the
SAT tests your ability to take the SAT. What do we mean by that?
Well, the SAT--like most standardized tests--primarily tests your

when preparing for the SAT is to learn about the test itself:
Understanding the way content is tested on the SAT is as important
as knowing the content itself.
