New SAT Math Test: Order of Difficulty

The questions in the two parts of the Math Test (No Calculator and Calculator) are arranged in a loose order of difficulty. The earlier questions are generally easier and the last few are harder, but the difficulty may jump around a little. Also, "hard" on the SAT means that more people get it wrong, often due to careless errors or lack of time. In addition, the questions within the Grid-In part of each section will also be arranged in a rough order of difficulty. Because difficulty levels can go up and down a bit, don't worry too much about how hard ETS thinks a question is. Focus on the questions that are easiest for you, and do your best to get those right before moving on to the tougher ones, no matter where they appear.
