PSAT Math Review

Last night I ran a review session for math section of the upcoming PSAT examination. My screen recording of the session is below along with a few resource documents. A few helpful things to remember:

1) Always guess if you can eliminate at least one answer.
2) Make sure you guess randomly.
3) Make sure you are answering what the question is asking.
4) Just because the answer you came up with is listed as a choice doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the correct answer.
