By Haruhara (Haruhara) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 04:52 pm: Edit

let's poll it up in this format:

math: (your thoughts here)
verbal: (your thoughts here)

By Haruhara (Haruhara) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 04:55 pm: Edit

here:

math: medium
verbal: hard

math:harder
verbal:easy anals.& sent. completions but harder critical reading

By Skapoor1 (Skapoor1) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 04:57 pm: Edit

math: easy(although 1-2 of them were a little bit tricky)
verbal: easy (i got 70 on psat verbal but i felt after taking this one and checking my answers w/ dictionary/forums, i could easily have gotten 800 and 770 at least. I did learn a lot of vocab on friday though, so that may have had something to do with it.)

By Crypto86 (Crypto86) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 04:58 pm: Edit

math: medium (not super hard, but tricky)
verbal: hard CR, mostly easy analogies and medium SC

All IMO though.

verbal: easy (it felt like almost all the words were from Xiggi's list--thanks, Xiggi!)
math: medium--not hard concepts, just tricky (ran out of time on last grid-in)

By Haruhara (Haruhara) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 05:07 pm: Edit

hm... maybe the curve'll be bad this time...

By Kevinkleinz (Kevinkleinz) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 05:23 pm: Edit

Math: really easy
Analogies and sentence completions: easy
Critical reading: medium

By Modestmouse (Modestmouse) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 05:27 pm: Edit

math: harder than any previous SAT I've taken(including 10 Reals)
verbal: same as math. Except I had taken June, 2003, so I was familiar with the passages a little bit on CR.

By Laurenh87 (Laurenh87) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 05:46 pm: Edit

Math: harder than usual... mainly just tricky problems (not difficult, per se) but I ran out of time on the last one

Verbal: easy

I talked to this pro guy who runs his own SAT course and takes all the SATs. He said that the math was average to a tad easier. There was only 1 or 2 visualization question and he said the only hard question that could not be solved easily was the palindrome question on QC. He said verbal was medium to a tad hard. The SC contained many hard vocab words. The analogies were easier than usual and the CR was average. So the verbal with have an medium curve due to easy CR and pretty easy analogies. Math will be average.

By Phantom (Phantom) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 06:23 pm: Edit

math: fairly easy
verbal: hard (how can anyone say it's easy when there are 4-5 questions being disputed right now? are you so sure that your answer is right?)

By Hobbes344 (Hobbes344) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 06:26 pm: Edit

Math: Hard (er)
Verbal: Medium

By Glory (Glory) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 06:28 pm: Edit

i agree with phantom

math: few tricky ones i figured out eventually

verbal: vocab a little quere (i.e. foppish , chichanery, even contrite); CR (very hard): memory passage - ugh, Roman numerals (asi asi)

By Neelesh (Neelesh) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 06:29 pm: Edit

math: not bad..easy to medium
verbaL: the analogies were not bad, and the sentance comepletions weren't bad either, so im gonna say medium on those, but he CR was way hard for me, so Hard for that

By Glory (Glory) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 06:29 pm: Edit

was the roman numerals one definitely not experimental?

By Sulskman (Sulskman) on Sunday, March 28, 2004 - 06:53 pm: Edit

Yes the roman numeral passage will be scored!

math: harder than usual (only got up to 21 on 25Q section{cry} and only did 6 grid-in {cry}{cry}

verbal: the vocab wasn't bad, my 700 word box from testtakers helped A TON!
however, many SC and analogies were tricky.
the CR was easier-average

By Hertish (Hertish) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 06:50 pm: Edit

math: soo easy
verbal: medium to hard

By 5sjoh (5sjoh) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 08:13 pm: Edit

verbal : very hard
math : medium

By Bcrichsolo (Bcrichsolo) on Thursday, April 01, 2004 - 07:35 pm: Edit

math: tad easier
verbal: tad harder

i think the curve is going to suck because the test balanced out to be an average test even tho some problems were disputable

By Gmf05 (Gmf05) on Thursday, April 01, 2004 - 08:42 pm: Edit

They curve it for each section separately, so it didn't balance out.

By Melissamelissa (Melissamelissa) on Thursday, April 01, 2004 - 09:59 pm: Edit

math- easy-medium (sum tricky ones)
verbal- very hard

By Osnapjew (Osnapjew) on Thursday, April 01, 2004 - 10:03 pm: Edit

verbal - VERY EASY, missed maybe 2 i hope
math - missed like 4, F(RI)CK... :(

praying for a 1500

By Astrobobocop (Astrobobocop) on Friday, April 02, 2004 - 01:18 pm: Edit

verbal: extremely easy
math : missed 5 gridins
hopefully in the high 1400s

By Bcrichsolo (Bcrichsolo) on Friday, April 02, 2004 - 05:54 pm: Edit

the math was very easy, not the verbal. Math had no hard questions at all except the palindrome question which wasnt even hard. There were no hard pattern questions or visualization questions except for the folded cube question. The verbal wasnt hard but the SC had alot of hard vocab as opposed to other tests. The CR were quite controversial in the answers which means they werent to easy. The analogies were pretty average-easy.

By Billiam2 (Billiam2) on Friday, April 02, 2004 - 06:29 pm: Edit

Verbal: So easy. Easiest i've ever seen.
Math: average compared to other tests.

Hoping for a 1200. (800 math and 400 verbal)

By Bcrichsolo (Bcrichsolo) on Friday, April 02, 2004 - 07:09 pm: Edit

if verbal was the easiest uve ever seen, how did u get a 400 on it? are you retarted?

By Socalnick (Socalnick) on Friday, April 02, 2004 - 08:40 pm: Edit

math easy verbal average
