If f(x) = e^x and g(x) = sin x, then the value of (f comp g)( sqrt 2) is ?

Hi Mike,

Do you accept SAT II questions ?

If f(x) = e^x and g(x) = sin x, then the value of (f comp g)( sqrt 2) is ?

A completely new program that connects teenagers of every culture.

A completely new program that connects teenagers of every culture. It is a huge money-making for its designer

Is this correct? I think the first sentence was a fragment.

Hey man, I got caught out by T7S4Q35 in the BB. I went for B as I figured a dash is the same as a colon (since cirrected). E is a pretty easy answer to spot in hindsight, but my Q is, what does one need to know about dashes in the SAT?

Unsure that he was prepared for the championship boxing match, Carlos’s day off was spent practicing and refining his strategies.

Splicccccce?

Unsure that he was prepared for the championship boxing match, Carlos’s day off was spent practicing and refining his strategies.

I narrowed it down to
B) Carlos was unsure that he was prepared for the championship boxing match, he therefore spent his day off practicing and refining his strategies.
And,
C) Feeling unsure that he was prepared championship boxing match, Carlos spent his day off practicing and refining his strategies.

I see no error in either, is B a comma splice?

In your experience of students who achieve 800 are they finishing a lot quicker ? Going back and checking at least once ?

Bonjour Mike,

Timing / 800 question. I’ve been practicing with old SAT papers. I’ve got a decent sample size now, and the trend has been that I will oscillate between 0 wrong and 2 wrong. What has been constant though is that I always finish with less than or a minute to spare (without rushing). (There have been a few occasions where I’ve got stuck and had to go back). In your experience of students who achieve 800 are they finishing a lot quicker ? going back and checking at least once ?

I know I’ve asked about memorising formulas before, but I came across my notes from Diag Drill #3 and found a parabola question where I used x=-b/2a.

over too ey ?

I know I’ve asked about memorising formulas before, but I came across my notes from Diag Drill #3 and found a parabola question where I used x=-b/2a. Am I mistaken here ? Whats the pwn stance one this formula.

What I am looking for is more practice material, which effectively mimics test questions.

I have a schedule laid out for my BB test, and for the review of them. With CR (my weakest area), I am struggling with the timing, it’s taking me a lot time to eliminate the wrong / justify the right, when down to two. What I am looking for is more practice material, which effectively mimics test questions. The CR was good for this, but didn’t last long in the way of examples. The CB quizzes were exact examples of what I am looking for. I made some nice improvements using it.

Company officials announced that there would be no major changes made to the eligibility requirements for its benefits package, an offering that makes its plan more generous than other major retailers.

A real duzi.

“Company officials announced that there would be no major changes made to the eligibility requirements for its benefits package, an offering that makes its plan more generous than other major retailers.”

How would you correct this bugger ?

I think we are comparing one benefits package with another, despite the change being made to the ‘eligibility requirements’.

Therefore I would change the end of the sentence to read, “than that of other major retailers”

How long would you set aside for dedicated essay preparation (using probably only your book and focusing on writing extensively)?

Essay preparation.

Firing them at you thick and fast. How long would you set aside for dedicated essay preparation (using probably only your book and focusing on writing extensively) ?

I am planning on writing the Oct 3rd SAT, and had set aside ten days two weeks immediately before the test date to focus solely on the essay (probably some revision as well).

Would you cut this a little differently ?

If I were to have time myself, what would a comparable (to test day) amount of time be for each drill?

Not as relevant now, as I’ve completed all four drills. But out of interest sakes, if I were to have time myself (which I did for the last two), what would a comparable (to test day) amount of time be for each drill. Figured this may be helpful for people who repeat the exercise or who are yet to smash ’em.

Along the side of the winding country road stretch a long line of pine trees and a low, crumbling stone wall covered with both moss and snow.

Grammar Q.

“Along the side of the winding country road stretch a long line of pine trees and a low, crumbling stone wall covered with both moss and snow”

The answer seems to come intuitively to a good student. But I just want to make sure know what is being tested here (ie, why this version is incorrect).

Does, “a long line of pine trees and low, crumbling…….”, constitute a compound noun and therefore requires the plural “stretch”?

As always, your diligence is appreciated man.

I came across the topic of “gerunds as the subject” today….

Magic Mike,

I came across the topic of “gerunds as the subject” today. The example used is; “Playing parlor games such as charades were a popular……”. This error seems easy to spot, but my immediate thought was that in the heat of SAT battle this would type of Q would be tougher. I haven’t been able to find any other examples testing this, or any other mention of it in the book (EM grammar) or on other SAT tutor sites. Is this a high frequency error, should I pursue more examples of it ?

What are your thoughts on using the permutations and combinations formula?

In a post I read of yours you said that with the exception of 3 things (lines, ……) there are no other formulas you should memorise. In other posts of your I have seen you use the combinations formula. What are your thoughts on using the permutations and combinations formula ?

Could you point me in the direction of any posts you have made (or section in your book) where you discuss counting problems specifically.

Thanks man
