## The Absolute Best Book** to Ace the SHSAT Math** Test

**1- Work backward on math problems**

Can’t you figure out the math problem? Start with each answer choice and work back to see if it makes sense. If you still can’t determine the correct answer, this method can help you use the delete process to limit it.

**2- Support your answers in the ELA section**

In the ELA part of the test, it is not enough to give the correct answer. You have to justify your thinking. Be sure to link your choice to a specific point in the text related to your answer. If you cannot find support in the passage, you may not have selected the correct answer.

**3- Know how to pace yourself**

SHSAT differs from typical standardized tests because it does not set a time limit for math and ELA sections, allowing students to split test time as desired. Test-takers can take advantage of this feature by taking smart steps. Before starting the test, set a basic schedule for how long each part of the test will take. The ideal strategy varies from student to student.
