5 SAT Sentence Completion Strategies
Here is a list of 5 SAT Sentence Completion Strategies:
1. Read the whole sentence first. On sentence completion questions, read the whole sentence, saying "blank" in place of the missing words, and try to understand the logical gist of the sentence. Don't even look at the choices before you understand the whole sentence.
2. Come up with your own word. If you understand the sentence and its structure, you should be able to generate your own word or phrase for each blank. Write them down if it helps.
3. Work by process of elimination. Once you have your own word(s) in mind for the sentence, go through the choices and eliminate those that don't convey the same idea in the sentence.
4. Focus on tone. Pay attention to the tone of the words (positive, negative, or neutral) as you try to complete the sentence, and eliminate those choices that give the wrong tone.
5. Analyze for roots and prefixes. If the words in the choices are tough, try to guess their meanings based on their prefixes and roots.
