The good folks at The College Board, the creators of the SAT, like to keep us on our toes—so the SAT is again getting a major facelift.
The October 2015 PSAT and the March 2016 SAT will be the first administrations of the new, “revised” SAT test.

The good news is that almost all of the preparation you’d do for the current SAT—the kind I cover in my lynda.com course SAT Prep: Getting Started—will apply to the revised SAT, as well.

So get out some paper and a pencil, and let’s learn some SAT math tips!
