The SAT rewards students who understand the material well; however, when we do come across a tough question, we can use our graphing calculators to squeeze out SAT points we would never have received. Over time, you will find your own tricks. They might be on the calculator or on the paper.

Let's take a look at a few SAT questions and pretend we have absolutely no idea how to algebraically solve it but we have some idea of the concepts.

Do we give up? Of course not! Like squeezing that extra bit at the end of your tube of toothpaste, pulling out your calculator and punching in numbers like a madman may save you in the long-run.

If you're a high math scorer (770+), consider using these quick calculator tricks to sanity-check your answer.

About Jie
Oh how I love to pet my cute and fluffy hamster,
Whose soft and silky fur brings me so much joy.
With gentle strokes I feel my worries scatter,
And peace descends upon me like a warm decoy.

But then there's Miami traffic, oh so vile,
That grinds my gears and tests my patience so.
The honking cars, the endless, crawling miles,
Make me yearn for escape from this endless woe.

Yet still, I hold on to my hamster's love,
His comfort shining like a guiding light.
