I took the SAT1 (edited version) today. My arm was blazing from writing an essay in 25 minutes. Otherwise the test wasn't THAT bad.

So...
Have you guys taken it yet?

I took it today too. I am taking an essay writing class this year at school so for me the essay was a piece of cake. I pretty much found the test to be disappointing. It wasn't really THAT hard or anything. I may be sounding haughty, so forgive me, but I don't get why people spend so much money on help books and study aids. If you're doing well enough in school, then that's enough to do well. ^-^ I'm glad it's over with.

I have taken the SAT exam before, but I didn't need to write an essay. The older SAT exams had 7 parts, and usually there were 2 types of exams, one with 3 verbal and 4 math parts, and the other with 4 verbal and 3 math parts. This is to prevent cheating. I did fairly well on the SAT exam and scored a 1050, but I know that the grade could've been much better.

Agggghhhhh!!!!!!! I hate that stupid test! I've taken it twice, and twice the new version, essay and all! I guess I can't complain, I got 2000 on the last one, but I hate all forms of standardised tests, they're just so long and demeaning! >=0!! It's not that the test itself is hard, even though some math questions can be pretty tough, it's just that the entire process of "Do not turn to work an another section" speeches get on my nerves, and ten frickin' sections?! Why on earth is all this necessary?

Oh, the fond memories. Not only did I take it way back when (I got a 1500), but earlier this year I took it's big brother, the GREs, so I can completely sympathize with you.

Hope you did well, afan and aikoyamada!


Edit: Ugh. . . the new scoring scheme really throws me up. For the sake of geezers like me, if you note your scores, can you also give the oldschool equivalent?

Do not expect to be applauded when you do the right thing, and do not expect to be forgiven when you err, but even your enemies will respect commitment, and a conscience at peace is worth a thousand tainted victories.

Well I've taken school entrance exams in the US and in China and Japan. And lemme tell you, the SAT's are a breeze compared to what Asian kids need to go through.

Essay in 25 minutes for the new SAT? Try writing poetry in ancient chinese.

Hard vocab that you've never seen before? How about some kanji that's been out of use for the past 100 years??

the SATs really are nothing compared to other tests that I've taken.

Edit:
Though I do sympathize with you all. Really I do. I know how much it sucks to have to memorize words like crepuscular and termagant.

Haven't taken it yet, but i signed up for the SAT in June. The only reason why i didn't take today's was cuz i was too lazy to sign up >_<

Talking about the SAT, personally i think the essay is pretty pointless, as if they wanted to truly test a person's skills at writing, it would be better to have at least a 35 min writing period at the very minimum...but that's just me.

I took the SAT Subject Tests today, in Biology E/M and Math IIC. I'll be taking the regular SAT next month. ^^ I think I did fairly well on the biology section, have to wait and see the scores. Math...not so good. It's not my strong point, plus it covers up to PreCalc, which I haven't taken. I'll probably end up taking it again in the fall. It's only because UCSD and CalTech require it. >_<

I pity all the underclassmen. They all need to take the new SATs that's what, 4 hours long??? haha, and the even younger middle schoolers need to suffer whatever the else college board comes up with to change the test even more. hahaha

sorry, didn't mean to make fun of anyone. Just think of it this way, do well on it, and it'll help in get into a better college?

How do they score the new SAT? I took the old one a few years ago and got a 1500. My sister will be taking the new one soon, so I'm rather interested.

Whoa Shin! You got pretty high! My brother got a 1540 too. :D
The old one was score by
Math max- 800
English max- 800
for a total of 1600 points right? Now the people added SAT II Writing (which is 800 points) to the SAT I revised version.

Biri? You're going to CalTech?! I hope you make it! That's one hard school.

Lucky me, I have to take NCEA Level 3 in three years. Which is such a load of crap. At least the SAT is straightforward.

Nope. Just a practice test. But for most other people, it was real (because they were juniors/seniors). I took it just for the heck of it. XD
