SAT and SAT Subject Tests Math, Biology, Chemistry, Physics experience?
Hey
Because I have to do the SAT test soon. I wanted to ask what experience you have with the above tests. And where the difference between math level 1 and 2 is.
I hope you can help me along with that ...

Re: SAT and SAT Subject Tests Math, Biology, Chemistry, Physics experiences?
So I did the Sat test in America in the spring of this year. The math part is really easy and no problem at all. With the critical reading and writing part it gets more difficult. I had spent more than half a year in America at the time I wrote the test and especially towards the end of each section it was difficult to get along with the vocabulary or texts and the time. But if you prepare for it (I had to deal with it specifically for 1 week, was in the middle of my finals) then it is really doable. I will also do 3 Sat Subject tests, but I have no experience with that yet. From my friends in America I know, however, that the difference between MathI and Math II is simply the level of math, i.e. 1 is easier, 2 is more difficult. If I didn't mix it up but as far as I can remember it was believe it.

OK thanks.
maybe you could tell me about your experiences with the subject tests

I did three subject tests (maths II, bio, physics). Basically, I would say: if you had the subjects in the GK, they should be feasible for you (depends of course on the targeted result). If you want something over 700, however, you should prepare a little. I've used the Princeton Review books - they're good for knowing what's next, but there aren't that many exercises. Math 2 had the peculiarity for me that I had never worked with a graphical calculator. It is not necessary, but recommended, so work in if necessary.
As for the SAT I: 99.9% of all universities (I'm assuming you want to study in the USA) also take the ACT. As a non-native speaker (despite 1 year of exchange), I found that a lot easier, especially when it comes to the language. Critical Reading has many words on the SAT that are simply not used in common parlance. Math and writing are about the same, and there is also a "science" part of the ACT - but you don't need any knowledge, you have to evaluate information from tables / diagrams. I didn't find it so difficult now either.
