Jan 11 SAT & ACT Question of the Day

http://sat.collegeboard.org/practice/sat-question-of-the-day?src=R&questionId=20130111 (This link takes you to today's question. If you use my archive, you will see the question related to my SAT explanation for that date. However in my first few blogs, I didn't use a date in my link and you won't get the proper question. Sorry.) The answer is C, "dauntless." As always, an SAT Sentence Completion question is attacked by using the topic of the sentence. In this case we know "he" is brave. So, look for an answer that means "brave." if you don't know... Read More »

Jan 10 SAT & ACT Question of the Day

http://sat.collegeboard.org/practice/sat-question-of-the-day?src=R&questionId=20130110  (This link takes you to today's question.  If you use my archive, you will see the question related to my SAT explanation for that date.  However in my first few blogs, I didn't use a date in my link and you won't get the proper question.  Sorry.)

The SAT test writer's explanation is dead on and I would take it one step further. You don't need those words at all. This sentence makes complete sense without them. Then you would have two parallel phrases, "isolated..." and "perched..." that describe Lhasa. Bingo, all done. Let's take a look at the ACT question. http://www.act.org/qotd/ This is standard, com...

Jan 8 SAT & ACT Question of the Day

http://sat.collegeboard.org/practice/sat-question-of-the-day?src=R&questionId=20130108 After a delay, their website is now up and running. As usual, focus on the topic of the sentence.  There is a certain kind of critic who gets incensed/upset when something happens to classic plays.  "Purists" believe in staying pure to the original; so they would be upset when classics are changed or reinterpreted. If you were stuck, try reading the sentence and plugging in answers.  All the others make no sense. Let's take a look at the ACT question... Read More »

Jan 7 SAT & ACT Question of the Day

http://sat.collegeboard.org/practice/sat-question-of-the-day?src=R&questionId=20130107 This is a fun question.  Some people like to do crossword puzzles and I like to do SAT and ACT test questions!  It combines probability with simple inequalities. When you solve the two inequalities you find out that x is less than 4 and greater than -10.  Only two of the five values in the set (-5 and 0) are in that range.  Probability is expressed as "the number of correct ways/the number of possible ways" an event can occur.  In this case, 2 ways work ...
