You have to answer 20 questions in 25 minutes duration. 15 of them will be multiple-choice ones and the remaining five are grid-ins. In the non-calculator section, you are strictly prohibited to use the calculator.

 

Tips and Tricks are discussed to overcome calculation problems.

 

 

MEMORIZE KEY FACTS 

In this particular section, knowing “math facts” can help you solve questions more quickly and efficiently, especially since you’ll likely be using at least some pencil and paper to find answers.

 

 

USE EASY NUMBERS 

While some SAT variable questions require you to work with the variables as variables, you can sometimes substitute numbers to help you find the answer when you are truly stuck
 

 

REVIEW WORKING WITH FRACTIONS

This one is especially important for students who are used to solving every question with a calculator. Calculators allow you to easily work with decimals, so many of the no-calculator questions use fractions specifically.
 

 

DON’T CONFUSE EQUATIONS AND INEQUALITIES 

Many of SAT problems involve equations, but word problems tend to deal with inequalities rather than equations. Phrases like “at most” or “at least” tip you off that you’re dealing with an inequality, and you need to see if the end of the range is included in the answer as defined in the problem.

 

 

GET COMFORTABLE WITH VARIABLES 

Along the same lines as fractions, many questions don’t give explicit values but instead use only variables, or they use values that are often treated like variables such as pi or e (Euler’s number).
