The only way to score well on a standardized test is to study materials directly developed by the test-maker. The Ivy League Education Center is uniquely equipped to maximize SAT/PSAT scores because our curriculum utilizes real SAT questions and SAT preparation materials from the College Board. Rather than try to mimic the College Board’s questions, the program purchases all exams directly from the test maker.

We have a long history of close collaboration with the College Board and the Educational Testing Service. Actually, we are only one in the Washington DC metropolitan area having a contract with the College Board to use all real questions from the past SAT tests in our SAT Prep program. Our students have gained great benefits from the program and received top scores on the SAT. In particular, 461 students got a perfect score of 800 on the SAT Math Section, including five 6th graders, twenty 7th graders, and forty five 8th graders. Please view here: Notable Achievements of Our Students

The best way to prepare for the SAT is to practice by solving College Board’s official SAT problems. We have collected a total of 1596 Redesigned SAT math questions from the College Board as described in Table 1: 483 questions on which no calculator can be used and 1113 questions that are calculator-optional. More details can be found in Table 2-5. All these questions have formed our “big data” system, a golden resource for our students, who are the ultimate beneficiaries. We have used data mining and predictive analytics to examine the types and the frequencies of questions, and then completely decode the SAT. We always show all the “secret code” cracked from the above big data to students, and teach them to totally grasp and “control” the SAT.

The College Board published a series of materials describing the redesign of the SAT, such as:

  • Test Specifications for the Redesigned SAT
  • Getting Ready for the Redesigned SAT (REVISED FOR USE FOR MARCH – JUNE 2016)
  • The Redesigned SAT and SAT Suite of Assessments (Online) Math Sample Questions
  • The Official SAT Study Guide (2016 Edition)

These materials provide meaningful information and knowledge about key elements of the various components comprising the Redesigned SAT. We have compiled 180 math sample questions from the above four documents. See more details in Table 4 below.

Every official SAT included one test section that did not count towards a test taker’s score. By design, students could not tell which section was experimental, which allowed the College Board to effectively pretest questions for future exams. With all the changes being made to the new SAT in 2016, the experimental sections in recent years from have been especially novel and different from what students are used to seeing on the SAT. We have collected redesigned SAT math questions in the recent experimental sections of real SAT tests from May 2014 to Jan. 2016, as shown in Table 5.
