## How many times is too many to take the SAT?

In general, it is better to limit the number of times you take the SAT and spend more energy on resources to thoroughly prepare for each test date. From our experience, we would recommend students taking it no more than three times or so.

**Are radians on the SAT?**

Radians will only account for a small portion (around 5%) of SAT math questions, but you still want to get those questions right! Radians are one of the trickier concepts. What do you need to know about radian measure?

**Is Algebra 1 on the SAT?**

Some questions on the SAT Math test may include concepts that seem unfamiliar to you, but don’t worry–all the topics tested on the SAT Math test are taught in your typical high school Pre-algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus classes.

### Do you need to know unit circle for SAT?

Some of the College Board’s free practice tests do not feature a single question requiring knowledge of the unit circle. That said, if you want a perfect score on the SAT Math Test, you should feel confident in virtually any topic that the SAT might throw on their test, including the unit circle.

**Is there a downside to taking the SAT multiple times?**

The most selective schools— like Yale and Stanford for instance—require you to submit every ACT/SAT test that you have ever taken. For most students, there is no disadvantage in taking the test as many times as they want.

**Should I have my calculator in radians or degrees for SAT?**

A question with angles in degrees needs the calculator to be in degrees, and a question with angles in radians needs the calculator to be in radians. Degrees are more common on the SAT than radians though.

## What’s the lowest possible SAT score?

400

**Is it bad to take the SAT 5 times?**

In general, we recommend not taking the SAT more than 5 or 6 times. Taking the SAT more than 6 times may cause schools to think you don’t take the test seriously or can’t figure out how to improve your score.

**Is Trig on Sat?**

In addition to the questions in Heart of Algebra, Problem Solving and Data Analysis, and Passport to Advanced Math, the SAT Math Test includes several questions that are drawn from areas of geometry, trigonometry, and the arithmetic of complex numbers.

### Do colleges prefer Math 1 or 2?

Do colleges prefer Math 1 or Math 2? It depends on the college. For selective colleges, (and especially if you are applying to engineering schools), it’s a safe bet to take Math II, which covers the same material as Math 1 (two years of algebra and geometry), plus trigonometry and pre-calculus.
