Today, we’re going to talk about the one key math secret to propel your math score on the SAT private school exam.

Secret to Propel Your SSAT Math Score

When approaching the SSAT test and specifically looking at the math sections of the test, you’re going to have two different math sections: one at the beginning and one at the end. For a lot of students, the hardest thing to be prepared for the SSAT, whether it’s the lower level, middle level, or upper level, is just the breadth of potential topics that can show up in math.

So, one secret tip to help you prepare for this is to create a master list of math concepts, formulas, approaches, and processes of elimination that you can use to anticipate any kind of question.

Create a master list

Now a lot of times we talk about this secret tip. It is necessary to have someone such as ourselves at Prepped and Polished or another tutor to help navigate the path through the SSAT to identify the specific questions or concepts that your student is struggling with.

Now, I’m a firm believer that there’s no absolute list that every list can be added to, it can be continued on. So they need to be creating what I call a rolling style of the list in terms of the math, especially identifying different types of numbers or concepts, formulas, processes that need specific attention.

You can identify this list into three categories:

  • there’s stuff that you know that you struggle with
  • there’s stuff that you don’t know or are learning,
  • and then there’s stuff that you can make simple errors on: you know it, but you find that this one thing that I always seem to be making a mistake on.

So, by identifying those categories, filling out that list, and having what I call the rolling style of a list, you can continually add to it throughout the entire tutoring process starting day one.
