Hey there! I totally understand that geometry can be a bit tricky on the SAT. Don't worry, I've got some suggestions that could help you out.

First, consider using resources like Khan Academy or CollegeVine. They have a lot of free materials to help students with various aspects of college applications, including SAT prep. Specifically, Khan Academy is an excellent resource for learning and practicing geometry content. They have instructional videos, practice problems, and explanations which cater to different learning styles.

Second, try breaking down the geometry questions into smaller parts or simpler concepts. Often, you'll see that those questions may involve multiple geometric rules or properties. Identifying them may make the question less daunting and more manageable. It's also helpful to have a strong understanding of the basic concepts and rules of geometry so you can apply them with confidence.

When working on these questions, don't hesitate to draw diagrams, even if one is provided. Sometimes, drawing your own diagram helps you visualize the situation and can lead to a better understanding of the problem. Label your diagrams with relevant information to make it more effective.

Lastly, practice, practice, practice! The more you tackle geometry questions, the more comfortable you'll become in identifying patterns and approaching various types of problems. Make sure to review any mistakes and learn from them so that you can improve your skills.

I hope you find these tips helpful! Good luck with your SAT preparation!
