SAT READING SECTION TIPS
Read the questions before the passage.
This is a good way of saving time when you’re taking the SAT because you will most likely go back to the passage over and over again after reading the questions. Instead, read the questions first then read the passage. Doing so also allows you to read only the information and key points that are related to the question.

AND NOW…TEST PREP WORD OF THE DAY
TEST PREP WORD OF THE DAY
sanguine
adjective: cheerful; optimistic
With the prospect of having to learn 3,000 words during the course of the summer, Paul was anything but sanguine.
