Written by fellow student and Amazon best-selling author Silpa Raju, Dissecting the SAT offers readers a glimpse into the mental-processes of a high-scoring student. Silpa shares the test-taking techniques, shortcuts, and critical thinking skills that allowed her to achieve a high score. With an emphasis on how to think conceptually about and approach questions, not just how to answer them, Dissecting the SAT effectively reveals the thinking-patterns of a high-achieving test taker, in a manageable, clear form that any student can use to raise his or her SAT score. Based on personal experience and the analysis of numerous real SAT exams, Silpa describes the tried-and-true testing tactics that she herself used to achieve a high SAT score. Dissecting the SAT is written for students, by a student, lending a unique and relatable perspective to SAT preparation that other books cannot replicate. Silpa is a recent high school graduate and wrote the majority of Dissecting the SAT while she was still in high school, offering her the added advantage of being directly immersed in the student life of test taking whilst writing this book. The result is a unique prep guide that includes the most essential information and skills, as designated by a student who has recently taken the SAT, and that leaves out the unnecessary and outdated techniques championed by other authors, who are paid by test prep companies to write prep for an exam they havenat taken in decades.
