On the SAT® Critical Reading section, the College Board is testing a multitude of skills. For example, one tested skill is the ability to read two short paragraphs about the same topic, written by two different authors for two disparate purposes, and then to assemble an accurate picture of each author's perspective or argument. The test makers scour award-winning and lesser-known publications to find prose upon which to create highly testable environments.
The SAT® Mathematics section is a comprehensive review of arithmetic, geometry, algebra, statistics, and more. However, the College Board tests these concepts within frameworks that are often foreign to the ways in which a student performs similar operations in a high school math class. Moreover, the SAT® Mathematics section manipulates language in a way that one could consider this portion an extension of the Reading Comprehension material. Many students wind up performing lengthy, intricate operations, only to produce the right answer... to the wrong question.
The SAT® Writing section is a composite of different formats intended to optimally examine a student's general and specific writing skills. From choosing the best answer that correctly forms a complete, succinct thought, to isolating one grammatical error within a sentence that is seemingly riddled with mistakes, a student has plenty of chances to have his or her confidence shaken. Also factored into a student's Writing score is an essay, through which the test makers can judge whether a student can apply the same skills, only within his or her own prose.
