SAT Investment Facts

Short-term Windfall!

High SAT scores can provide immediate economic results: A perfect 1600 scorer can expect scholarships of $50,000 annually for a 4 year total of approximately $200,000!

Long-term Lifestyle!

A high SAT can also transform one’s life and serve as a portal to a leading university and career. The candidate student may be wishing to become a Medical Doctor, drive a Mercedes, and change the world for the better. This is the acceptable student dream.

However, a high SAT score can also benefit the lives and retirement plans of the parents and caretakers involved. As such, parents need to invest!

Superior Return on Investment

An SAT investment cleanly outstrips other traditional investments. Potential best-case returns have bank deposits at 1-2%, real estate at 3-7%, stock market blue chips—depending on the year and the risk—anywhere from 10-25%.

However, an SAT education is unrivaled! A $1,500 investment in Florida’s best SAT program can realize annual scholarships of $6,000, $10,000, or $30,000+. These are massive returns of 400%, 667%, and 2000% respectively. Truly education is the best investment.

The Rich Get Richer?

Realtors, bankers, and brokers all agree with the above analyses. Economically advantaged families (often located in northern Ivy School neighborhoods) make absolutely sure to invest in SAT education. Many of these related SAT students begin studies in their freshman year. They fine-tune their SAT results as a sophomore and later put down near perfect SAT scores as a junior.

However, the SAT is open to all high school students to enroll. It is potentially the ‘great equalizer’ and indeed it was created in the 1950s to bring much needed balance and diversification into college populations. As such, it is incumbent on Miami residents of all cultures to participate in the opportunities offered by the SAT.

Florida’s Best SAT Program: Detail

The SAT Exam Format

The world-famous SAT exam from the College Board is organized into five components as follows:

  1. Reading (65 minutes, 52 questions)
  2. Writing and Language (35 minutes, 44 questions)
  3. Math (No Calculator, 25 minutes, 20 questions)
  4. Math (Calculator, 55 minutes, 38 questions)
  5. Essay (Optional, 50 minutes)

As can be seen, the SAT is a long, cumbersome exam with more information than can be practically processed in the short time granted. Therefore, a long-term and vigilant SAT preparation strategyis critical to success. At Wise Choice, we carefully plot and re-plot an effective SAT algorithm to guarantee student success.

Registration Information

Traditionally our no-fee SAT programs begin with a thorough registration process. Among other details we discover who the student is, what their cultural and educational background is, what their academic and behavioral strengths and weaknesses are, what their GPA is, what their college and career goals are, and, what SAT gaps or opportunities may exist.

Upon payment and registration in Florida’s Best SAT Program the student receives:

  • SAT study and strategy book (i.e., College Board’s The Official SAT Study Guide)
  • SAT 1600 book (i.e., Barron’s SAT 1600: Effective Strategies for Tackling the SAT’s Hardest Questions)

Individual Development Plan

From this we generate an Individualized Development Plan (IDP) which includes time horizons and, if any, economic constraints or goals.

Key to any plan are the specific test dates involved. In 2018 and 2019 the dates are as follows:

  • 2018 Exam Dates: August 25, October 6, November 3, December 1
  • 2019 Exam Dates: March 9, May 4, June 1, August 24, October 5

The individual development plan entails a specific path to SAT success. An expectation as to attendance times and dates are agreed to. Any holidays or work constraints are discussed. Methods of learning are discussed in light of academic successes (and failures or sub-optimal outcomes) of the past.

With in IDP in place the student is invited to realize his or her academic and career dreams now! The student is invited to used university and career-oriented vocabulary now! They are invited into an inner circles of like-minded perfect-scorers, academic professionals and high-achievement individuals. The student is invited to walk away from the simple and childish habits of the past for it is now—and not two or five years hence—that the dream and professional lifestyle begins!

Math and Vocabulary Head Start

At the first opportunity—often at the first meeting—materials are given to the student and perhaps a specific first drill is unveiled. Usually this has to do with vocabulary development—a specific topic that often requires a longer than shorter time horizon to gain proficiency on. The student can expect a quick drill and his or her first SAT Vocabulary book.

At the same time, a quick mathematical and arithmetic overview may take place. Research shows that approximately 25 to 33% of SAT math errors are, in fact, grade or middle school arithmetic errors. As such, we quickly review times-tables, squares and cubes in the pursuit of eliminating needless errors.

The SAT is a Stress-test

More than seeking SAT error-reduction, we review vocabulary and math basics to develop SAT test-taking speed and efficiency. This is done as in many circles the SAT is more known to be a malicious stress-test than any sort of normal standardized academic test. As such speed and accuracy are required. These qualities further enable the student to to prioritize SAT questions and manage the, at times, overwhelming stress of the exam.

Abilities to manage time, stress, and prioritize questions in a pressure-packed exam sitting are required. As such we at Wise Choice waste no time in developing our students for a successful SAT exam sitting.

SAT Diagnostic Exam

With registration, IDP, vocabulary, math, and stress discussed—the student takes his or her first diagnostic exam. This usually occurs in the first or second meeting depending on the issues outlined, above.

Our SAT diagnostic exams come in at least four formats: a 45 minute brief diagnostic, a 60 minute diagnostic, a preferred 90 minute diagnostic, and a full 3 or 4 hour diagnostic exam (really just a standard SAT exam although our competitors label it as a diagnostic).

SAT Vocabulary

As mentioned, the SAT program covers vocabulary sooner-than-later as it represents one of the longer learning curves. Whereas mathematics is more factual and based binary right or wrong responses, vocabulary is less defined and takes time to develop.

Vocabulary can come in a few forms in any SAT: First, a good vocabulary will have the student reading and responding more timely manner, Second, there are the actual reading passage questions regarding certain vocabulary-in-context questions. Thirdly, there is the need to develop vocabulary for use on the essay question.

At Wise Choice we use SAT-researched lists of 300, 500, and 1000 SAT vocabulary terms. We use similar flashcards involving hundreds of SAT pieces of vocabulary. We also use SAT vocabulary book by other authors—one reviews 2300 SAT terms. This book is given to all our SAT program students.

SAT Mathematics

The SAT has two math sections: a no calculator, 20 questions, 25 minute challenge and a calculator allowed, 38 question, 55 minute section.

At Wise Choice we have split SAT mathematics into approximately 45 cores sections (e.g, linear equations, quadratics, circle geometry, etc.). Overlaying that is approximately 20 or so vignettes that cover SAT mathematics. Each of these sections explains the math topic is the clearest, most concise terms possible. They are often only a page to three in length and usually have a 5-10 questions quiz at the end.

We feel these 65 or so parts to the syllabus demystify SAT mathematics and grants the student the greatest possible chance for success.

The math sections are reinforced with actual SAT exam sections and half sections. The student initially completes part sections untimed and works his or her way up to complete full sections accurately and on a timed basis. Later, the student will learn to write two, three, then four or more complete SAT sections in sequence.

SAT Reading

With a handle on SAT vocabulary and the mathematics portion of the program in full swing the student is introduced to the SAT reading section. The reading section has 52 questions over only 65 minutes. The SAT College Board affirms the section possesses five passages—one on literature, two on social studies or history, and two on science.

Needless to say the reading section is an overload of information. The readings are at a high school (but in reality upwards to a university) reading comprehension level. The readings are intricate. There will be no common discussion of American football and, say, Dan Marino in Miami in 2010. In its place will the topic of classical music and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in Russia in, say, 1805. To be sure, the SAT will use five syllable names from different centuries and in far-foreign lands.

The SAT student must be academically and mentally well-prepared for the reading section—its is a lengthy, difficult section. At Wise Choice we counsel the student with our own in-house strategies. Prioritization of questions are key. Elimination of incorrect responses and educated guessing are also key.

There are also methods to get accustomed to literature sections—often the greatest opportunity to many of our young, male, sports-minded, Latino, students. These students need to understand—to an extent—the styles associated with old English; with writings by Virginia Woolf, Emily Bronte or her sister Charlotte Bronte; and, with novels entitled Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights. As such, lists of vocabulary terms, traditional phrases, and cultural idioms are recited time and again.

SAT Writing and Language

The SAT Writing and Language section is 35 minutes and 44 questions in duration. The section requires the student to know the proper use of English grammar, punctuation, and subject-verb agreement to name a few sub-topics.

At Wise Choice we have split the Writing and Language section of the SAT into approximately 10 various sub-topics. Like mathematics, the student can better navigate through SAT writing and language once the smaller components are known and rehearsed.

Regular Mock Exams

No SAT program is complete without regular mock exams. At the Wise Choice Center, full length SAT mock exams are usually completed on Thursdays. This is an optional exercise, however, the examination rooms, materials, exam booklets and exam answers are all readily available that day.

Regular, weekly mock exams help ensure high SAT scores. It is important to write SAT exams on a regular basis. It is important for the student to get used to the duration of the exams, the vigilance required, the need to manage one’s composure in light of stress, and the need to manage one’s energy level through a long, tedious process that can last approximately four hours.
