Volume 1 covers the topics of Number Theory, Algebra, Functions, Complex Math, Real World Problems, and much more. These two volumes are sold separately and contain 766 hard problems: enough hard problems for 50 SAT tests, and plenty to allow students to concentrate only on the subjects they find difficult, if they wish. Written by a tutor with many years of experience, the goal of New SAT Math: Huge Guide to Hard Problems is to help good students move from an okay math score to a top math score on the newly formatted SAT, first given in March 2016. It is a complete guide to the most difficult problems found on the test. This two-volume set is the product of an exhaustive analysis of the new SAT, the author’s many years of tutoring SAT students, and includes all new subject areas included on the test. These two volumes together present, in one plan of study, the archetypes of the most challenging math problems found on the test. There are over 300 such archetypes covering every math subject and problem solving technique a student will need to score an 800. The framework of this guide is anchored on these archetypes. They form a basis set of problems designed to minimize the virtual distance between them and any math problem a student will encounter on the SAT. Subject reviews are included along with 452 additional challenging practice problems that reinforce, fill in, and expand the areas covered by the archetypes. Few practice problems simply replay the archetypes; almost all are unique variants. Some practice problems are more difficult than their corresponding archetypes. A few problems, identified with the word CHALLENGE, are probably more intricate than problems appearing on the SAT. These, however, are great practice for the warrior class – and require only the same basket of problem solving techniques as will be needed for the test. A total of 766 problems are fully explored in these two volumes. The bulk of these math problems are very challenging for most students - a 4 or 5, out of 5, in difficulty. Every one includes a hint and a clear solution presented as a tutor would teach it. Hundreds of alternate solutions illustrate shortcuts and other clever methods that are less obvious, but save valuable time, if employed. Their purpose is to impart creative intuition and insight into the multiple paths a solution may take. With easy questions filtered out, this collection contains enough hard math problems for about 50 different new SAT tests.
