um...do all the prep books of the old SAT, skipping over the irrelevant parts, and do current SAT II Writing prep books

the writing test will be copied in format onto the new test? or are only parts of it going to be implemented.

By Vermicelli (Vermicelli) on Thursday, June 10, 2004 - 01:28 pm: Edit

the SAT I writing part will be 25 minutes - MC improving paragraphs, sentences, and figuring out errors like in the PSAT and SAT II Writing. THe next 25 minutes will be the essay writing

For the New SAT,

Will it still be useful to study vocabs?

yes, although vocab won't be as important as before with analogies, a strong vocabulary will help you to get a better score on the "Critical Reading" section.

I'm takeing a reading/writing class this summer. I will probably get the new books that are coming out in Oct. and I'll take the Princeton Review classes next summer.

You still have sentence completions. However, the absence of analogies should NOT change much in your preparation as it was easily the least important part of the SAT-1.

thnx for the contribution! do you think the writing in the new sat is going to be similar to the one in toefl? cos the toefl writing is just seeing how fluent u are at writing and it just gives tells them you know ur grammar. and yeah, i'm definitely goign to work on my vocabulary. in the long run, it's going to help u in ur life, such as, goign to college, reading high-class mags.. lol.. and all. don't just think about COLLEGE.. i think it's kinda short term. anyways... that's my question up there!

By Thunder77 (Thunder77) on Friday, June 11, 2004 - 06:00 pm: Edit

Nope. The writing in SAT is harder than TOEFL I'm assuming. It is most similar to SAT II writing, if not the exact same thing. Think about it, TOEFL only test to see you know how to speak english. SAT II Writing is optional and it tests how much you really know about english and it assumes you're fluent already(considering they test you idioms).

Hey Xiggi,

were the analogies the least important part of the the SAT? They did constitute many of the questions of the old SAT.

Jenni87,
Yes, I know what you mean. Knowing more vocabs does make me feel better and this is certainly not just for college. But what I want to know from Xiggi is that will it suffice to place less emphasis on vocabs since they don't really test you about vocabs as much as the old SAT.

Thanks!:)
