SAT Ⅰ

Insight, Inspiration, & Involvement

 

Tell them, they'll forget.

Show them, they'll remember.

Involve them, they'll understand.

Inspire them, they'll cherish.

 

It was well after I entered college that I realized the importance of “logic.”

 

A confident and excited newbie, I soon realized that among this selective group of smart, well-educated kids, probably some of the best in the country, simply a brilliant “idea” wouldn’t quite cut it. Ideas are great – but unless you are able to express them in a coherently organized, beautifully styled prose, let’s face it: No one in the academia will take you seriously.

 

Later, while running my business and leading a team, I soon realized the same thing holds true in the adult world: No matter how insightful and creative your views are, if you don’t use “clear” sentence structures to convey them “logically” and “persuasively,” your views are just as useless as a cell phone out of battery power.

 

THEN, I had a moment of epiphany when I became an SAT instructor and started reading the SAT textbooks again. The books, which I used to dread and had nightmares about, were surprisingly full of tips and info to help me to use – wait for it – LOGIC, an ability I was dying to have back in college.

 

The SAT I knew and hated as a student was testing how to pick correct answers and use “behind-the-scene” (yet somehow universally-known) so-called “test-taking tips” such as “do the easy questions first” or “use process of elimination” (like duh?). My first impression was wrong, however: The real SAT that I got to know better was actually testing how to use critical thinking so that we could maximize our inner potentials to let the world know that our views and ideas MATTER.

 

Interestingly, the moment I realized this was the moment I started to really get the SAT. I started getting 2400’s in a row and really started to see how the test is intended and structured. Of course, when I teach, I’m not going to tell students to work on their logic, or read New York Times, because no one’s going to do it anyway. Let me ask you a question instead: When you, for example, exercise and don’t see results you expected, what do you do?

 

Right, you work with a personal trainer who knows what s/he’s doing (you have a problem if you answered “steroids”). They teach you the right way to position your body and use the equipment, because if you use the machines the wrong way, it won’t be as effective as could be.

 

That’s analogous to what I do. If your score’s not a 2400, then you must have been using your brain muscles the wrong way. So I’m here, not to tell you what the CR passage you just read was all about, or what kinds of “test-taking tips” there are, or simply give you explanations that any book could give you, but to tell you how to actually start identifying your logical fallacy and simply apply it to the SAT.

 

I’ve identified 20 types of logical fallacy, 10 for CR and 10 for Writing, which students often commit on the SAT; each type also has subcategories, of course. But since the term “logic” sounds daunting to some, I use “문제유형” and “오답유형” as vessels to convey that logic. So you’ll start picking up on logic without even knowing you are, sort of like a cell-phone plugged into an outlet while off. When you turn it back on after a while – BAM, 100% (or 2400 in your case).

And this subliminal logical power will improve not only your SAT score but also your ability to think and write critically, which you’ll soon thank me for since it will save you numerous sleepless nights (and Red Bulls) in college.
