Are you looking for extra SAT practice questions, but don’t have a lot of time to sit down and take an entire test? The SAT Question of the Day may be just what you’re looking for.
What is the Question of the Day?
The Question of the Day is a question that can be taken from any one of the three main SAT subject areas tested: critical reading, writing, or math. The purpose of the question of the day is to provide quick, daily test review. Because of this, the question of the day tests only those questions that do not require extensive reading. Questions presented in the question of the day are the sentence completion questions from the critical reading section, the sentence improvement and error identification questions from the writing section, or any of the math questions.
How Can I Access the Question of the Day?
The Question of the Day can be reached through the College Board website or the link below free of charge. Once on the College Board website, students can choose to do the question or have the question delivered via email. Additionally, students who choose to sign in prior to answering the question can keep track of their scores and note how they are doing compared to other students who have also taken that question.
When Should I sign Up for the Question of the Day?
The question of the day is a very brief lesson meant to be used over a long period of time rather than to help a week before the test. Because of this, one should sign up for it as early as possible upon entering high school. In fact, if a middle school student is interested in taking the SAT for possible placement into gifted classes or for other reasons, the question of the day may be a good way to get a look at the test questions without the stress of long study periods.
In addition, the College Board often offers hints after incorrect answers and to those who need them. Reviewing these hints can help build strategies for those willing to study them.
