SAT and SAT Subject Tests

The SAT is a test used for college admission purposes and is typically taken during junior year.  The test includes 3 sections: reading, writing and math.  The critical reading section includes reading passages and sentence completions.  The writing section includes a short essay and multiple-choice questions on identifying errors and improving grammar and usage.  The mathematics section includes questions on arithmetic operations, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability.
   
SAT Subjects tests are sometimes required by colleges to help with admission decisions, course placement and course selection.  They are one-hour, multiple-choice tests on a specific subject.  There are currently 20 SAT Subject tests in 5 categories: English, History, Science, Mathematics and Languages.
