INTRODUCTION: PREPARING FOR THE SAT II: BIOLOGY E/M SUBJECT TEST Who Takes the Test and What Is It Used For? Students planning to attend college should take the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test if: (1) Any of the colleges they apply to require the test for admission; OR (2) The student wishes to demonstrate proficiency in Biology. The SAT II: Biology E/M exam is designed for students who have taken one year of college preparatory biology (either a general survey course or one with emphasis on Ecology or Molecular Biology), a one-year course in algebra, and have laboratory experience. However, due to the variation in high school biology courses, most students will encounter questions that test material with which they are not familiar. Who Administers The Test? The SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test is developed by the College Board and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS). The test development process involves the assistance of educators throughout the country, and is designed and implemented to ensure that the content and difficulty level of the test are appropriate. When Should the SAT II: Biology E/M be Taken? If you are applying to a college that requires Subject Test scores as part of the admissions process, you should take the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test toward the end of your junior year or at the beginning of your senior year. If your scores are being used only for placement purposes, you may be able to take the test in the spring of your senior year. For more information, be sure to contact the colleges to which you are applying. When and Where is the Test Given? The SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test is administered six times a year at many locations throughout the United States; most test centers are at high schools. For more information on specific testing dates and locations, consult the registration bulletin or your high school guidance counselor. To receive information on upcoming administrations of the exam, consult the publication Taking the SAT II: Subject Tests, which may be obtained from your guidance counselor or by contacting: College Board SAT Program P.O. Box 6200 Princeton, NJ 08541-6200 Phone: (609) 771-7600 E-mail: [email protected] Website: http://www.collegeboard.com Is There a Registration Fee? Yes. There is a registration fee to take the SAT II: Biology E/M. Consult the publication Taking the SAT II: Subject Tests for information on the fee structure. Financial assistance may be granted in certain situations. To find out if you qualify and to register for assistance, contact your academic advisor. Can I Use a Calculator? Calculators are not permitted on the SAT II: Biology E/M. The metric system of units is used, so review of metric units may be helpful. The Biology E/M is a one-hour exam consisting of 80 multiple-choice questions. Each question has five possible answer choices, lettered (A) through (E). The common core, which appears on both the Biology-E and the Biology-M Tests, consists of 60 questions. It covers Cellular and Molecular Biology, Ecology, Classical Genetics, Organismal Biology, and Evolution and Diversity. Its emphasis is on Organismal Biology. In addition to the common core, you will be required to take a specialty section comprised of 20 questions, making 80 the total number of questions you will be answering on any form, or in any administration, of the SAT II: Biology E/M. One of these specialty sections is the Biology-E Test, which covers principles and applications of Ecology. The other specialty section is the Biology-M Test which covers concepts and principles of Molecular Biology. Remember, these specialty sections are taken in addition to the common core. However, you will not be able to take both the Biology-E and the Biology-M Tests in the same administration. The following chart summarizes the distribution of topics covered on the SAT II: Biology E/M exam: Topics Covered in Core Section / Percentage of Test /Number of Questions Cellular and Molecular Biology / 12% / 9-10 questions Ecology / 12% / 9-10 questions Classical Genetics / 10% / 8 questions Organismal Biology / 30% / 24 questions Evolution and Diversity / 11% / 8-9 questions Ecology (Biology-E Test) / 25% / 20 questions OR Molecular Biology (Biology-M Test) / 25% / 20 questions Note: Every administration of the Biology E/M Test includes 60 common core questions. This book will provide you with an accurate and complete representation of the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test. Inside you will find a course review designed to provide you with the information and strategies needed to do well on the exam, as well as six full-length practice tests based on the actual exam. Three of our model tests are aimed specifically at students taking the Biology-E Test, and three are geared toward those taking the Biology-M Test. REA's practice tests contain every type of question you can expect to encounter on the SAT II: Biology E/M Test. Following each test, you will find an answer key with detailed explanations to help you master the test material. What Do I Study First? Remember that the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test is designed to test knowledge that has been acquired throughout your education. Therefore, the best way to prepare for the exam is to refresh yourself by? thoroughly studying our review material and taking the sample tests provided in this book. They will familiarize you with the types of questions, directions, and format of the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test. To begin your studies, read over the review and the suggestions for test-taking, take one of the practice tests (Biology-E if you are studying Ecology, or Biology-M if you are studying Molecular Biology) to determine your area(s) of weakness, and then restudy the review material, focusing on your specific problem areas. The course review includes the information you need to know when taking the exam. Be sure to take the remaining practice tests to further test yourself and become familiar with the format of the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test. When Should I Start Studying? It is never too early to start studying for the SAT II: Biology E/M test. The earlier you begin, the more time you will have to sharpen your skills. Do not procrastinate! Last-minute studying and cramming is not an effective way to study, since it does not allow you the time needed to learn the test material. The sooner you learn the format of the exam, the more comfortable you will be when you take the exam. TEST TAKING TIPS Although you may be unfamiliar with standardized tests such as the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test, there are many ways to acquaint yourself with this type of examination and help alleviate your test-taking anxieties. Become comfortable with the format of the exam. When you are practicing to take the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test, simulate the conditions under which you will be taking the actual test. Stay calm and pace yourself. After simulating the test only a couple of times, you will boost your chances of doing well, and you will be able to sit down for the actual exam with much more confidence. Know the directions and format for each section of the test. Familiarizing yourself with the directions and format of the exam will not only save you time, but will also ensure that you are familiar enough with the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test to avoid nervousness (and the mistakes caused by being nervous). Do your scratchwork in the margins of the test booklet. You will not be given scrap paper during the exam, and you may not perform scratchwork on your answer sheet. Space is provided in your test booklet to do any necessary work or draw diagrams. If you are unsure of an answer, guess. However, if you do guess - guess wisely. Use the process of elimination by going through each answer to a question and ruling out as many of the answer choices as possible. By eliminating three answer choices, you give yourself a fifty-fifty chance of answering correctly since there will only be two choices left from which to make your guess. Mark your answers in the appropriate spaces on the answer sheet. Each numbered row will contain five ovals corresponding to each answer choice for that question. Fill in darkly, completely, and neatly the circle that corresponds to your answer. You can change your answer, but remember to completely erase your old answer. Any stray lines or unnecessary marks may cause the machine to score your answer incorrectly. When you have finished working on a section, you may want to go back and check to make sure your answers correspond to the correct questions. Marking one answer in the wrong space will throw off the rest of your test, whether it is graded by machine or by hand. When taking the test, you may want to occasionally check your answer sheet to be sure that you are filling in the oval that corresponds to the question you are answering. This is especially important for those taking the SAT II: Biology E/M Test. For the Biology-M Test, you will need to fill in ovals 81-100, therefore, ovals 61-80 on your answer sheet will remain blank. Be sure to pay close attention to this when you begin the Biology-M Test. You don't have to answer every question. You are not penalized if you do not answer every question. The only penalty results from answering a question incorrectly. Try to use the guessing strategy, but if you are truly stumped by a question, remember that you do not have to answer it. Work quickly and steadily. You have a limited amount of time to work on each section, so you need to work quickly and steadily. Avoid focusing on one problem for too long. Taking the practice tests in this book will help you to learn how to budget your time and pace yourself. Keep track of your scores. By doing so, you will be able to gauge your progress and discover general weaknesses in particular sections. You should carefully study the reviews that cover your areas of difficulty, as this will build your skills in those areas. To help you budget your time for studying, we have provided for you a detailed study schedule. The SAT II: Biology E/M Test, like all other Subject Tests, is scored on a 200-800 scale. Before the Test Make sure you know where your test center is well in advance of your test day so you do not get lost on the day of the test. On the night before the test, gather together the materials you will need the next day: - Your admission ticket - Two forms of identification (e.g., driver's license, student identification card, or current alien registration card) - Two No. 2 pencils with erasers - Directions to the test center - A watch (if you wish) but not one that makes noise, as it may disturb other test-takers On the day of the test, you should wake up early (after a good night's rest) and have breakfast. Dress comfortably, so that you are not distracted by being too hot or too cold while taking the test. Also, plan to arrive at the test center early. This will allow you to collect your thoughts and relax before the test, and will also spare you the stress of being late. If you arrive after the test begins, you will not be admitted to the test center and you will not receive a refund. During the Test When you arrive at the test center, try to find a seat where you feel most comfortable. Follow all the rules and instructions given by the test supervisor. If you do not, you risk being dismissed from the test and having your scores canceled. Once all the test materials are passed out, the test instructor will give you directions for filling out your answer sheet. Fill this sheet out carefully since this information will appear on your score report. After the Test When you have completed the SAT II: Biology E/M Subject Test, you may hand in your test materials and leave. Then, go home and relax! You should receive your score report which includes your scores, percentile ranks, and interpretive information about three weeks after you take the test.

The practice tests contain every type of question that you can expect to appear on the SAT II: Math Level IC Subject Test. Following each test you will find an answer key with detailed explanations designed to help you master the test material. ABOUT THE TEST Who Takes the Test and What Is It Used For? Students planning to attend college take the SAT II: Math Level IC Subject Test for one of two reasons: (1) Because it is an admission requirement of the college or university to which they are applying; OR (2) To demonstrate proficiency in Mathematics. The SAT II: Math Level IC exam is designed for students who have taken more than three years of college preparatory mathematics (two years of algebra and one year of geometry). Who Administers The Test? The SAT II: Math Level IC Subject Test is developed by the College Board and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS). The test development process involves the assistance of educators throughout the country, and is designed and implemented to ensure that the content and difficulty level of the test are appropriate. When Should the SAT II: Math Level IC be Taken? If you are applying to a college that requires Subject Test scores as part of the admissions process, you should take the SAT II: Math Level IC Subject Test by November or January of your senior year. If your scores are being used only for placement purposes, you may be able to take the test in the spring. For more information, be sure to contact the colleges to which you are applying. When and Where is the Test Given? The SAT II: Math Level IC Subject Test is administered five times a year at many locations throughout the country; mostly high schools.

Consult the publication Taking the SAT II: Subject Tests for information on the fee structure. Financial assistance may be granted in certain situations. To find out if you qualify and to register for assistance, contact your academic advisor. What Kind of Calculator Can I Use? Your calculator should be, at the minimum, a scientific calculator. It can be programmable or non-programmable. Bear in mind, however, that for perhaps 60 percent of the test items, the calculator will afford you no advantage and, moreover, may actually work against you. No pocket organizers, hand-held minicomputers, paper tape, or noisy calculators may be used. In addition, no calculator requiring an external power source will be allowed. Finally, no sharing of calculators will be permitted - you must bring your own. Make sure you are thoroughly familiar with the operation of your calculator before the test. Your performance on the test could suffer if you spend too much time searching for the correct function on your calculator. HOW TO USE THIS BOOK What Do I Study First?

PASSING THE SAT II: FRENCH SUBJECT TEST ABOUT THIS BOOK This book provides you with an accurate and complete representation of the SAT II: French Subject Test. Inside you will find topical reviews packed with the information and strategies you'll need to do well on the exam, as well as six REA practice tests based on the actual College Board exam. Our practice tests contain every type of question that you can expect to encounter on the SAT II: French Test. Following each of our tests, you will find an answer key and step-by-step detailed explanations designed to help you master the test material. ABOUT THE TEST Who takes the test and what is it used for? Planning to attend college? Then you should take the SAT II: French Subject Test if: (1) Any of the colleges to which you're applying require the test for admission, OR (2) You wish to demonstrate proficiency in French. The SAT II: French exam is designed for students who have at least two years of strong preparation in the language. Who administers the test? The SAT II: French Subject Test is developed by the College Board and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS). The test development process involves the assistance of educators throughout the United States, and is designed and implemented to ensure that the content and difficulty level of the test are appropriate. When should the SAT II: French Subject Test be taken? Most students take the Subject Tests towards the end of their junior year or at the beginning of their senior year. You should take the SAT II: French Subject Test while you are taking a French class. You're likely to be rusty if you haven't been in a French class for several months. If you are applying to a college that requires SAT II: Subject Test scores as part of the admissions process, you should take the SAT II: French Subject Test in time for your colleges to see your score. If your scores are being used only for placement purposes, wait as long as you can to get the most preparation in your French courses as possible. Make sure to contact the colleges to which you are applying for more specific information. When and where is the test given? The SAT II: French Subject Test is administered six times a year - in October, November, December, January, May, and June - at test centers across the United States. The test given in November is the only one that includes a listening portion (which is not covered in this book). To receive information on upcoming administrations of the exam, consult the publication Taking the SAT II: Subject Tests, which can be obtained from your guidance counselor or by contacting: College Board SAT Program P.O. Box 6720 Princeton, NJ 08541-6720 (609) 771-7070 Website: www.collegeboard.com Is there a registration fee? To take the SAT II: French Test, you must pay a registration fee. For a fee schedule, consult the publication "Taking the SAT II: Subject Tests." Financial assistance may be granted in certain situations. To find out if you qualify and to register for assistance, contact your academic advisor. HOW TO USE THIS BOOK What do I study first? The SAT II: French Subject Test is designed to test knowledge that you have acquired throughout your education. Therefore, the best way to prepare yourself for the actual exam is to refresh your knowledge by thoroughly studying our review material and test-taking tips and by taking the sample tests provided in this book. They will familiarize you with the types of questions, directions, and the format of the SAT II: French Subject Test. To begin your studies, follow this simple plan: (1) Read over the reviews and the suggestions for test-taking. (2) Take one of our practice tests to determine your area(s) of weakness. (3) Study the review material, focusing on your specific problem areas. The reviews include the information you need to know when taking the exam. Make sure to take the remaining practice exams to further test yourself and become completely comfortable with the format and content of the actual SAT II: French Subject Test. Consult our study schedule for a detailed test-preparation timetable. When should I start studying? It is never too early to start studying for the SAT II: French Test. The earlier you begin, the more time you will have to sharpen your skills. Do not procrastinate! Cramming is not an effective way to study, since it does not allow you the time needed to learn the test material. The sooner you learn the format of the exam, the more comfortable you will be when you take it. FORMAT OF THE SAT II: FRENCH SUBJECT TEST The SAT II: French Test is a one-hour exam consisting of 85 to 90 multiple-choice questions - the number of items has been known to vary from one form of the test to another. The questions you'll encounter on the SAT II: French Subject Test are designed to measure the gradual development of competence in the French language acquired over a period of years. The test measures your grasp of the language in three distinct areas: - Vocabulary-in-context: Approx. 30%. Tests your knowledge of vocabulary and basic idioms within culturally authentic contexts. - Structure: 30-40%. Tests your ability to choose words or expressions that are grammatically correct within a sentence or longer paragraphs. - Reading: 30-40%. Tests your understanding of main and supporting ideas, themes, and settings of a text. Passages are drawn from texts like essays, historical works, newspapers, magazines, advertisements, and timetables. ABOUT THE REVIEW SECTIONS The reviews in this book will teach you the skills and concepts needed to approach SAT II: French Subject Test questions. We cover sentence structure, grammar, verb conjugation, spelling, and capitalization. Systematic review will help you identify the kinds of errors that often appear in vocabulary-in-context and structure questions. By using the reviews in conjunction with the practice tests, you will be able to sharpen your skills and put yourself in the best possible position to succeed on the SAT II: French Subject Test. STUDYING FOR THE SAT II: FRENCH SUBJECT TEST It is vital that you choose the time and place for studying that works best for you. Some students may set aside a certain number of hours every morning, while others may study at night before going to sleep. Only you can determine when and where your study time will be most effective. Be consistent and use your time wisely. Work out a study routine and stick to it! When you take the practice tests, try to make your testing conditions as much like the actual test as possible. Turn your television and radio off, and sit down at a quiet table free from distraction. Make sure to clock yourself with a timer. As you complete each practice test, score your test and thoroughly review the explanations to the questions you answered incorrectly; however, do not review too much at any one time. Concentrate on one problem area at a time by reviewing the questions and explanations, and by studying the review until you are confident you completely understand the material. Keep track of your scores. By doing so, you will be able to gauge your progress and discover general weaknesses in particular sections. You should carefully study the reviews that address your areas of difficulty; this will strengthen your skills and build your confidence. TEST-TAKING TIPS Although you may be unfamiliar with standardized tests such as the SAT II: French Subject Test, there are many ways to acquaint yourself with this type of examination and help alleviate your test-taking anxieties. Here are ways to help you become accustomed to the SAT II: French Subject Test, some of which may apply to other standardized tests as well. Become comfortable with the format of the SAT II: French Subject Test. When you are practicing to take the test, simulate the conditions under which you will be taking the actual test. Stay calm and pace yourself. After simulating the test only a couple of times, you will boost your chances of doing well, and you will be able to sit down for the actual exam much more confidently. Know the directions and format for each section of the test. Familiarizing yourself with the directions and format of the different test sections will not only save you time, but will also ensure that you are familiar enough with the SAT II: French Subject Test to avoid anxiety (and the mistakes caused by being anxious). Work on the easier questions first. Within each group of questions, the easier ones are usually at the beginning. If you find yourself working too long on one question, make a mark next to it in your test booklet and continue to the next question. After you answer all the questions you can, go back to the ones you have skipped. If you are unsure of an answer, guess. However - if you do guess, guess wisely. Use the process of elimination by going through each answer to a question and eliminating as many of the answer choices as possible. By eliminating two answer choices, you give yourself a fifty-fifty chance of answering correctly, since there will only be two choices left from which to make your guess. Mark your answers in the appropriate spaces on the answer sheet. Each numbered row will contain four ovals corresponding to each answer choice for that question. Fill in the circle that corresponds to your answer darkly, completely, and neatly. You can change your answer, but remember to completely erase your old answer. Any stray lines or unnecessary marks may cause the machine to score your answer incorrectly. When you have finished working on a section, you may want to go back and check to make sure your answers correspond to the correct questions. Marking one answer in the wrong space will throw off the rest of your test, whether it is graded by machine or by hand. You don't have to answer every question. You are not penalized if you do not answer a question. The only penalty you receive is if you answer a question incorrectly. Try to use the guessing strategy, but if you are truly stumped by a question, you do not have to answer it. Work quickly and steadily. You have a limited amount of time to work on each section, so you need to work quickly and steadily. Avoid focusing on one problem for too long. Taking the practice tests in this book will help you to learn how to budget your time. Before the Test Make sure you know exactly where your test center is well in advance of your test day so you do not get lost on the day of the test. On the night before the test, gather together the materials you will need the next day: - Your admission ticket - Two forms of identification (e.g., driver's license, student identification card, or current alien registration card) - Two No. 2 pencils with erasers - Directions to the test center - A watch, if you wish, but not one that makes noise, as it may disturb other test-takers On the day of the test, you should wake up early (we hope after a decent night's rest) and have a good breakfast. Dress comfortably, so that you are not distracted by being too hot or too cold while taking the test. Also, plan to arrive at the test center early. This will allow you to collect your thoughts and relax before the test, and will also spare you the stress of being late. If you arrive after the test begins, you will not be admitted or receive a refund. During the Test When you arrive at the test center, try to find a seat where you feel you will be comfortable. Follow all the rules and instructions given by the test supervisor. If you do not, you risk being dismissed from the test and having your scores canceled. Once all the test materials are passed out, the test instructor will give you directions for filling out your answer sheet. Fill out this sheet carefully, since this information will appear on your score report. Remember - since no scratch paper will be provided, you can write in your test booklet. After the Test When you have completed the SAT II: French Subject Test, you may hand in your test materials and leave. Then, go home and relax. You should receive your score report about five weeks after you take the test. This report will include your scores, percentile ranks, and interpretive information. YOUR SCORE REPORT You should receive your score report about five weeks after you take the test. This report will include your scores, percentile ranks, and interpretive information. When you register for the test, you can also take advantage of two different reporting options: Score Choice and the Writing Sample Copy Service. Score Choice allows you to review your scores before instructing the College Board to send them to the colleges you have chosen. If you decide your scores are too low, you can take the test again. Only you and your high school will know your original scores. The Writing Sample Copy Service provides you with three copies of your graded essay, which you can send to colleges for admissions purposes. Additionally, if you plan to take the test again, a copy of your essay with graders' comments can be invaluable in assessing your strengths and weaknesses.
