do you guys have any tricks for SAT verbal
i think that i am understanding the material, but i consistently obtain a 540 every time i take the practice tests and the first time i took the real SAT.
i have studied the most recommended 1000 SAT vocabulary words and have them down pat, but most of my points are taken away on the critical reading section.
what do you guys suggest i do and are there any tricks for the critical reading that can help me?

critical reading - Be politically correct! (no lie)
I went up from 55th to 75th percentile in that section just from picking the politically correct choice...
Ex. What are the author's thoughts on African Americans?
A. They are black
B. They are colored
C. They come from Africa
D. They are intelligent
E. They are not white
Correct answer - D
You don't even have to read the passage to predict this answer. Of course, it's not this easy, but many questions are pretty similar...

i dont understand exactly what you mean by that
can you give me some more in depth examples because the questions are never like that on the test.

I also want to be provided with some depth
examples.Wow this sounded like an echo ;))
sorry Mike for not paraphrasing your question but i'm as interested as you about political questions and SAT Verbal as a whole.

Get a verbal workout book to study from. My mom got me Pr's book and my score's been going up a lot since I started using it.

D'oh, I feel stupid. I truthfully would have put "C" for technobanana's question.

what technobanana is saying is sad, but true. and the not reading the passage is also true - just eliminate the bad answers. if you get into their way of thinking, you'll ace the sat verbal. cheers & good luck!
