SSAT Instructor Terri of Prepped & Polished, LLC in South Natick, Massachusetts teaches you how use key strategies when answering tricky SSAT analogies.

You’ve been practicing analogy using tried-and-true strategies like determining the relationship between stem word pairs and applying that relationship to the answer choices, but it isn’t always that straightforward. SSAT analogies get increasingly difficult as you navigate through the thirty analogy questions in the verbal reasoning section. No doubt you’re gonna be confronted by analogy questions where you don’t know the meaning of a stem word. Don’t panic. Don’t let that stump you. I’m here to show you a strategy that will help you target the correct answer choice even when you don’t know the meaning of a stem word. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Use the answer choices to work backwards
  2. Test the relationships on the stem words
  3. Pick answer choices whose relationship seems to work best
