Check out the video for some expert tips to help you absolutely crush, demolish, devastate, annihilate the New SAT Reading test.
Now that you’ve checked out Part 1, let’s talk about Coordinate Geometry problems on the new SAT, classified under the Passport to Advanced Math question group.
SAT Passport to Advanced Math questions test the skills that lead into the stuff you’ll be doing in calculus and pre-calculus. Check out these practice questions!
