We have been tutoring the SAT for over 20 years. Not only does our founder Steve teach and tutor the SAT, he takes the SAT too! Here is a screen shot of his 2400 super score.
The College Board revamped the SAT in March 2016. The SAT features a reading section, a writing section (grammar and style), and two math sections (one allowing calculator use and one prohibiting it.) There is also an optional essay section (which we recommend for students.)
Steve noticed a trend towards certain types of questions on the recent SAT and this knowledge will be of great value to his students. Gone are the days of archaic vocabulary words. Instead, any vocabulary questions rely much more on contextual clues. The Reading test is markedly different than those of the "old SAT" and the ACT.
The writing test used to be largely ignored by college admissions offices, but that is no longer the case. This score now gets combined with the reading score. Together, the reading and writing scores make up half of the SAT score.
The math test emphasizes algebra far more than does the ACT. It also includes arithmetic, geometry and limited trigonometry.
Steve took the new SAT in 2018 and scored a 1560 on his first try. (760 reading/writing and 800 math)
