Familiarize yourself with the exam.
The reading portion of the SAT will include five passages, 52 questions about those passages, and 65 minutes for completion. Expect to see a range of questions regarding these passages including main ideas, context clues, supporting details, graph interpretation, organizational structures, and much more.
Answer questions in the order that’s best for you.
Questions on the reading portion of the test will be in the order as seen in the text rather than order of importance or order of difficulty. Many students find it helpful to note difficult questions and come back to them after answering the easier ones.
Develop your own reading strategy.
Some students read quickly and can easily read through the passages time and time again with time to spare. Others need to devise strategies that allow them to read the necessary information and not waste time. Some prefer to read the questions first and answer them as they come across the answer, and others skim the passage, answer the easy questions, and save all main idea questions until last.
Rely on the text for your answers.
When taking the SAT reading section, you’ll encounter questions that require an understanding of inferences and suggestive nuance. These questions may not have an obvious answer in the text, but the text will suggest the answer. Rely only on the text to form an answer, not your opinions or prior experiences.
