About Research & Education Association
Research & Education Association (REA) is an organization of educators, scientists, and engineers specializing in various academic fields. Founded in 1959 with the purpose of disseminating the most recently developed scientific information to groups in industry, government, high schools, and universities, REA has since become a successful and highly respected publisher of study aids, test preps, handbooks, and reference works.
REA's Test Preparation series includes study guides for all academic levels in almost all disciplines. Research & Education Association publishes test preps for students who have not yet completed high school, as well as high school students preparing to enter college. Students from countries around the world seeking to attend college in the United States will find the assistance they need in REA's publications. For college students seeking advanced degrees, REA publishes test preps for many major graduate school admission examinations in a wide variety of disciplines, including engineering, law, and medicine. Students at every level, in every field, with every ambition can find what they are looking for among REA's publications.
While most test preparation books present practice tests that bear little resemblance to the actual exams, REA's series presents tests that accurately depict the official exams in both degree of difficulty and types of questions. REA's practice tests are always based upon the most recently administered exams, and include every type of question that can be expected on the actual exams.
REA's publications and educational materials are highly regarded and continually receive an unprecedented amount of praise from professionals, instructors, librarians, parents, and students. Our authors are as diverse as the fields represented in the books we publish. They are well-known in their respective disciplines and serve on the faculties of prestigious high schools, colleges, and universities throughout the United States and Canada.
This book provides an accurate, comprehensive representation of the SAT II: Subject Test in Spanish. It is composed of six complete practice tests based on the format of the most recently administered exam. We also provide an extensive - yet concise-review section that contains 17 drills.
Each of our practice tests is one hour in length and is patterned after the actual SAT II: Subject Test in Spanish. Each practice test covers every type of question that can be expected on the actual exam and provides an answer key and detailed explanations. Our intention is not only to provide the answers but also to explain to the student why the correct answer to a particular question is more acceptable than the other possible choices. Our unique format enables you to review effectively the material you will most likely encounter on the exam.
By studying our review, completing all six practice tests, and reading the explanations that follow, you can discover your strengths and weaknesses and thereby become well prepared for the SAT II: Subject Test in Spanish.
ABOUT THE TEST
The SAT II: Subject Test in Spanish is offered five times during the year: in October, December, January, May, and June. (The SAT II: Subject Test in Spanish with Listening, which this book does not cover, is administered only in November.) Students can obtain registration forms at the school guidance or counseling office.
Although some colleges require the SAT II: Subject Test as part of the admission process, most colleges use the SAT II: Subject Test score only for student placement purposes. The Spanish test consists of about 85 multiple-choice questions to be completed in one hour. The questions vary in level of difficulty and measure the gradual development of competence in the Spanish language acquired over a period of years. Although most students who take the test have studied the language for three or four years at the high school level, some students take the test at an earlier stage in their studies.
The SAT II: Spanish Test evaluates your reading skills through the topics of vocabulary, structure use, and comprehension of a variety of texts. The reading questions test vocabulary, but some questions test word meaning in certain sentence contexts. Various parts of speech are tested (verbs, nouns, adjectives, etc.), as well as idiomatic expressions. Structure questions require you to identify usage that is contextually and structurally correct. Reading comprehension questions (based on various pieces of prose fiction, newspaper articles, and advertisements) test the comprehension of main ideas, themes, and temporal settings.
The Spanish Subject Test is divided like this:
- Vocabulary and Structure / 33% of the test
- Paragraph Completion / 33% of the test
- Reading Comprehension / 33% of the test
There are no writing, listening, or speaking sections in this exam. These sections do appear, however, on the SAT II: Spanish Subject Test with Listening.
