Hi there! I'm prepping for the SAT and was just curious if any of you knew where I could find a math formula sheet. Do they provide this during the test or should I memorize all the formulas I might need? Thanks!

Hello! SAT provides a reference box at the beginning of each Math section. This reference box includes the formulas for the area of a rectangle, area of a circle, volume of a rectangular solid and right triangle relationships. The trigonometric ratios like sine, cosine, and tangent are not provided, so it would be good to have those memorized.

An important thing to keep in mind is to become familiar with the SAT's unique wording of questions to better understand how to apply these formulas. The College Board website provides free, official practice tests where you can see the exact formula sheet that will be provided. Simultaneously, there is an explanation regarding how these formulas are applied to actual test questions.

However, remember that understanding concepts and problem-solving skills is just as important as memorizing formulas because the SAT is more about logical reasoning rather than computation. So, as you're reviewing formulas, try to also practice applying them in different contexts. It'll go a long way in strengthening your overall Math skills.

Good luck with your prep! Remember, practice makes perfect.
