What You Will Find on the Test

The SAT passages represent various writing styles and are taken from different disciplines, including the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. They are written at the college level, which means they are sophisticated, complex, and contain some vocabulary that may be unknown to you. It is not expected that you have any prior knowledge of the material in the passages, but rather that you have the ability to read, understand, and use the information in them. Each Scholastic Aptitude Test also contains a pair of related passages presented as one reading section. They may express opposite points of view, support each other's point of view, or otherwise complement each other.

Specifically, critical reading questions will direct you to:

■ infer the meaning of words from context

■ comprehend the information presented in the passage

■ analyze the information

■ critique the authors' arguments (singly and as opposed to one another in a dual passage section)
