Students can start on any section they prefer, however, the test must be completed in 2 hours and 30 minutes. The verbal section is broken down into three parts. The recommended time spent on this entire verbal section is 75 minutes. Scrambled Paragraphs - 5 Questions This section requires students to structure a 6 sentence paragraph that has been placed out of order. The first sentence is given, and students must arrange the 5 sentences so it is in chronological order. It is important to note that these questions are worth twice as much as any other question on the test. For every scrambled paragraph that is correct, the student is awarded 2 points on their raw score. There is no partial credit, so, all 5 sentences must be arranged in the right manner to receive credit. This is the section most students find difficulty with. Logical Reasoning - 10 Questions This section requires students to draw valid conclusions from the information provided in the questions. There are specific types of questions in the logical reasoning section such as but not limited to: contrapositive of a conditional statement, deciphering codes and determining positions of objects. Reading Comprehension - 30 Questions This section requires students to read and answer questions. There are 5 passages in this question, each asking 6 questions. Math - 50 Questions The math section tests on algebra, arithmetic, statistics, geometry, probability and word problems. The math section contains 50 questions and the recommended time spent on this section is 75 minutes.

Organization. Time management. Study skills. These are the three critical skills students need to perform well in school. Most students lack at least one of these skills; many lack all three. Yet without a sound understanding of this all-important learning trifecta, students are likely to fail--over and over again. In this practical hands-on guide, Thinking Caps founder Alexandra Mayzler outlines the unique approach that has made her one-of-a-kind tutoring program such a success with students, parents, and educators alike. This interactive program steps your child through these crucial three areas, providing the worksheets, exercises, and anecdotes she needs to master them in record time. The book also features stories throughout, based on case studies of real-life clients. Special emphasis is placed on helping students understand how their own personalities, behaviors, and habits affect their work. Your child will learn to identify short- and long-term goals, and come to see how good study habits can help him achieve those goals. With this book, your child can get through school with flying colors! Endorsement for Tutor in a Book: “Finally, an easy-to-read book about study and test-taking strategies! Passionate and caring educators, Alexandra Mayzler and Ana McGann, have taken knowledge gleaned over many years of working with struggling students and created a valuable road map. Each chapter communicates information clearly and provides systems, worksheets and achievable strategies so students can take charge and become organized self-advocates. This volume should be part of every student’s toolkit and a necessary addition to the family library.” Susan J. Schwartz, MA Ed.
