Science measures the skills required in the natural sciences: interpretation, analysis, evaluation, reasoning, and problem solving.
Duration: 40-questions, 35-minutes
Strategy #1: Start with the last science passage and work backwards, as they are increasingly difficult when done in order.
Strategy #2: Read the questions first and refer back to the passages when asked. You may be able to answer them without reading the passage. Circle where each answer can be found as stated in the question (For example, “in Table 1” or “in Sample A and B”). In doing so, one is able to avoid choosing a true statement that isn’t the correct answer.
Strategy #3: The answers are in the passages and charts. Carefully use your time to understand the chart to search out the answer.
Strategy #4: Immerse yourself in the topic. You may have to pretend that you are interested in what you’re reading. This is an effective way to help you remember the material.
Strategy #5: Spend no more than five minutes on each section. Go through all the questions and skip any for now that you cannot quickly figure out and move on. If you finish a few of the sections in less than five minutes, you'll have time to go back and find the remaining answers or take a guess.
