The math review that follows is designed as a self-teaching text to help you prepare for the mathematics sections of the SAT. At the beginning of each chapter, you will find a ten-question diagnostic test. Try this test before you read the chapter. Check your answers with the solutions provided at the end of the chapter. If you get eight to ten questions right, you may skip that chapter and go right on to the next diagnostic test at the beginning of the following chapter. Or you may prefer to skim the instructional material anyway, just for review, but not bother with the practice exercises. If you get five to seven questions right, you might do the practice exercises only in the sections dealing with problems you missed. If you get fewer than five questions right, you should work carefully through the entire chapter. At the end of each chapter you will find a retest that is similar to the diagnostic test. After working through the chapter, you should do better on the retest. If not, go back and review any instructional material dealing with errors you made before proceeding to the next chapter. Working diligently through each chapter in this manner will strengthen your weaknesses and prepare you to get your best score on the three Practice new SAT Math Tests at the end of this book—and on your actual SAT. Good luck. www.petersons.com Operations with Whole Numbers and Decimals 1 DIAGNOSTIC TEST
