SAT Math Subject Tests Prep

(from someone who can actually explain it)

Chris is a Stanford-educated tutor with over 10 years experience tutoring math to students of all abilities and levels, from pre-algebra and middle school all the way through college algebra, calculus and the SAT. In that time he got a lot of experience learning how to explain this stuff in a way it actually makes sense to normal people, and he brings that experience to his videos, whether you are in class now or preparing for SAT Math Subject Tests.

How to prep for SAT Math Subject Tests using ThatTutorGuy.com -- The table below contains a list of all the topics you'll find on the SAT Math Subject Tests test. In the right-hand column of the table are links to all the videos on our site that you'll want to watch to cover those topics.

SAT Subject Tests: Mathematics 1 and 2

About the test: There are 2 College Board SAT subject tests in math: Mathematics Level 1 and Level 2. Level 1 covers Algebra, Algebra 2, and Geometry. Level 2 covers all of these plus pre-calculus and trig. Both also contain a small amount of statistics. Tests are on paper at a test center (likely your high school) and are given near the beginning of the month in October, November, December, January, May, and June.
Calculators: Calculators are allowed but must meet the guidelines of the calculator policy:

How to Study: Start by testing yourself on the appropriate practice test from the College Board. (There are lots of free practice tests online but the official one will have the most relevant questions). Use a similar calculator as you will use on your test.
