The new SAT test, arriving at a test center near you on March 5, is expected to be more closely aligned with classroom curriculum.
Forget the $10 words. In the reading and writing sections, you may be able to figure out meanings based on context. But there will be lots more reading, according to test prep tutors. In the math section, more questions will relate to real-life situations, though there will be plenty of algebraic equations and even some trig.
Before you run scared and sign up for the last sittings of the current test (there are three), try the practice tests posted by the College Board, which are aligned with the new SAT test.
