The Reading section is passage-based and each passage has 10-12 multiple-choice questions (A, B, C & D). You’ll be facing 5 comprehensive passages in this section – One from US/World Literature, Two from History/Social Studies and the last Two from Science. 

 

Tips and Tricks are discussed below to overcome reading section problems.

 

 

REORDER THE PASSAGES-

It’ll take some practice for you to figure out the best order based on subject and skimming for complex language, but it’s important that you do the passages in the order you want.

 

 

READ THE PASSAGE INTRODUCTIONS-

The SAT includes a one- or two-sentence introduction before each passage in italics. These introductions often tell you who wrote the passage, when it was written, and where the passage comes from.

 

 

COME UP WITH YOUR OWN ANSWER-  

Just as you would solve the Math Test questions and find the answer that best fits your own, you should come up with your own answer for the Reading Test questions before looking at the choices
 

 

IDENTIFY THE “RHETORIC” QUESTIONS-

A little less than half of the SAT Reading Test questions fall under a category the College Board calls “Rhetoric,” which has to do with the structure and development of the passage rather than the ideas and information. 
 

 

REFER BACK TO THE PASSAGE-  

To answer most of the Reading Test questions, you should refer back to the passage rather than relying on your memory of the passage itself.
