Tutoring SAT – reading section, vocabulary, passage structure

We spent about 2/3 of the hour on the reading section. For some questions, it was about really knowing the definition of words and how they function.

Other times, it was thinking about what a paragraph was about or what the entire passage was about and how certain parts functioned within them.

One question was about punctuation, this could be good to read, http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/semicolons

But there were not a lot of questions on punctuation, just a few.

Also looked at some math problems. Sometimes a few words in the question are very important to focus on, words like “constant”. A few questions were significantly harder than the others, including one about decibels and pressure.
