Writing is required for most, chemistry is SUPER easy if you take at least honors chem, i would try math1c too but the curve is brutal for that test.

it really depends on what your strengths and weaknesses are. !! obviously.

"chemistry is SUPER easy if you take at least honors chem"
not true. the top chem student at my school only got a 660 or 680. but, he took the physics sat ii and scored 780. so, i agree with jenny that it all depends on your strengths.

Warriorlax, SAT's require a different approach. It has more to do with the test itself than with what's on the test. I know many people who've aced all their life in Math classes but ended up getting 700ish on their SAT math. One person I know got world distinction in A'level Mathematics(which is no joke) and much much much higher than American highschool mathematics but ended up getting 730 on Math IIC not that he didn't know the stuff, just that he wasn't skilled in taking standardised tests.
For SAT's even if you know everything from A to Z, you need to approach them differently from the way you do your school tests else you're score will be low.

we're talking about SAT II's, not SAT I's. for the I's, you need to have a pretty good understanding of how to solve puzzles. for the II's, you need to know what you're doing. they're subject tests, if you don't know the subject, you're going to fail. yes, you approach the II's much different than you approach the I's. for example, i can be in terrible condition and still do well on the II's, but i can't do that on the I's.

CHEM SAT2 - that killed me, i skipped a year in science and took chmem in 10th grade, got ok grades in the class, then studued for two weeks, and averaged a 750 on practice tests. Took the tests and got a 590, dam

chem sat ii
chem honors - 550
chem ap - 730
so after taking AP chem, that test is pretty simple

i'm a b-student in chem (last year.) i hadn't taken any chem class for about 6 months and i got a 720. it all depends on how well you grasped the curriculum in the class (i took regular, my school doesn't offer honors or AP.) i got the princeton review book for it, read it the week before the test, and i did ok. you have to score really high to get a good percentile score though (i was in the 82nd percentile. not cool.)

math IIC and math IC was easy for me (i took IC for fun :p)

try literature...im a pretty bad test taker but ive always done well on the critical reading sections of the SAT 1,and i ended up scoring a 700 on the lit

I think a SAT II becomes much easier once you have taken an AP/honors class in that subject. I got a 700 Bio-M after taking AP bio, junior year.

sat II chem = cake.
dude there are NO INHERRANTLY EASY SAT IIs! it depends on what you excel in. just picking 3 at random is STUPID!
|By Korinfox (Korinfox) on Friday, December 05, 2003 - 08:04 am: Edit|
Sat II biology is pretty hard, because it is mostly memorizing stuff. I crammed for one month before the test after taking honors bio, and I got a 750 (I'm a pretty good studier....) It really depends what your strengths are tho, but I think you should take Math IIc instead of Ic, IIc has a far easier curve....
|By Awe02 (Awe02) on Friday, December 05, 2003 - 09:13 am: Edit|
world history is by far the easiest SAT2, generous curve and the questions arent all that difficult.(but i always screw up standardized tests, ive never done a history test multiple choice, maybe coz im international and our tests dont work that way)
|By Alphachimp (Alphachimp) on Friday, December 05, 2003 - 06:59 pm: Edit|
world history= easy (the curve is around 10 questions wrong for 800) me...800
math IIc= easy (of course I took precal and calculus at the same time as the test, imagine that had an effect) me...800
mathIc= harder than IIc me...740
physics= hard, but very, very generous curve
writing= a necessary evil
chem and bio= incredibly hard if you are not in ap or honors

How is Latin? Has anyone ever taken that one? What is the curve like??

The chem test was ridiculously hard for me (and I got a 5 on the AP exam). It tested really strange concepts and several of the answers were outright wrong. I only got a 750.
The Math IIC exam was easy.
If you're good at cranking out formulaic, trite essays in short periods of time and have a basic understanding of grammar you should do fine on the writing test.
