8月北美SAT真题回顾:难度适中,重复旧题,打乱顺序,全员加试...
想留学,没方向?还不点我快来聊?

8月北美SAT考试终于落下帷幕,因为和8月考试临近,考生规模又比较大的就是10月份考试,所以8月考试内容备受关注。一方面可以观察CB出题动向,备考做出适当调整,另一方面也可以在通过考情回顾检测下自己的实力。

坊间传闻,此次试卷重复旧题,但大家不要因为重复旧题就觉得会有失公平,这套试题很少在网络上流通,并且这套试题也流传多个版本,真真假假。并且CB还放出了大招。

今天的考情比较有意思,出现了很多大家意想不到的显现,比如都有加试,但加试内容有阅读,有的是语法。并且“不同考场题目顺序不同的情况,并且伴有题目ABCD四个选项顺序不同。”就算看过真题,也不能轻易获得高分。

19年8月北美又双叒叕重复题啦!

而且这次重复的不要太太太近哦! 这次直接重复了 19年6月北美考试的14套实验卷中的一套

虽然是重复,但是这次官方是铁了心和作弊做对抗了。

为了扼杀作弊,这次考试阅读、语法及数学部分有新变化,出现了不同考场题目顺序不同的情况,并且伴有题目ABCD四个选项顺序不同。 北美的东西海岸均有此等状况出现。

阅读部分

阅读部分整体难度中等偏上,尤其是小说有点不是很好懂,问题问得比较细,可能很多同学会在这里卡住。 个别题出的顺序有点奇怪,第三篇的科学的主题题放在第三道,不排除是不同卷题目顺序不一样的情况。 预测curve不会特别严,估计错5题以内都是错1扣10。

Passage 1 文章: Dance of the Happy Shades 作者: Alice Munro 大意: 文章用沉重的笔调主要讲述女人的爱的快乐和痛苦,大意是女主人很喜欢办musical party,但是她妈妈嫌年纪大了不喜欢。 中间大概说女主人办的party很混乱没有以前好了,后面讲了一下大家已经不喜欢上音乐课了,但是女主还沉浸在自己的理想音乐梦里。

Passage 2 文章: Getting out the Vote 作者: Suprlys Syal and Dan Ariely 大意: 讲以前都以为大家不愿意vote是因为没意识到投票的重要性,只要让大家意识到就愿意投了。 文章指出一个新发现,就是放人们在大家都投票的context里就会更有利敦促人们投票。

Passage 3 文章: Human Activities Boosts Brain Size in Animals 作者: Stephanie Mao 大意: 动物的脑子越变越大。 有两种可能性,一是营养的问题让动物脑子变大,二是因为人类的活动让动物的认知技能增强,所以脑子变大。 文章中的实验证实了这个可能性,同时这样的观点历史上也证实过。 文章最后指出还需要进一步的实验来衡量结论的可靠性。

Passage 4 第一篇 文章: Oration on the Celebration of the Anniversary of independence July 4 1793 作者: Henry Brackenridge 第二篇 文章: Americans No.1 作者: Alexander Hamilton 大意: 说的是法国是盟友,美国人要好好帮助法国人; 第二篇说法国这趟浑水美国人不要参与,只会给自己带来风险。

Passage 5
文章: Ancient Volcanic Explosions Shed Light on Mercury’s Origins 作者: Brown University 大意: 讲火山爆发的痕迹能够推断出当时水星的情况。 说是星球上的crater可以测出年纪,这样就能大概知道水星上的火山爆发大概是什么时候发生的。 实验表明火山的爆发不是在水星刚形成的时候就有了,而是过了一段时间,而且持续了相当长的时间。

语法部分
语法部分出现了不同考场的文章篇幅排序完全不同(仅仅篇幅不同,但是一篇中的题目和题目顺序还是一样的)。

本次考试整体难度中等偏上。 有几个标点符号题需要仔细看清,不然会进坑。 所有考点没有超出我们的考纲范围,都在我们的冲刺班上有讲过,尤其是其中的双引号考点,更是强调了多次。 本次也出现了句子合并没有选最短的情况,也是在考前的19年6月北美做题中我们反复强调的。

如果亲们的加试是语法,会有一篇文章,18个题。

Science Says“让科学来说话”

一篇规整的说明文,介绍了科学家除了学术能力之外的一项重要能力: 交流能力。 一方面交流能力能够很好帮助科学家进行科普,建立科学和大众之间的桥梁; 另一方面科学家的交流能力可以为科学家们换来真金白银的科研资金。

作为第一篇文章,难度当然最低。 一上来就是以一个极其简单的平行结构开头,最后以一个毫无难度的时态题结尾。 有冒号用法的小坑,平行结构和单复数的考点结合,比较结构的一致性——但是只要细心,都能迎刃而解。 第8题语气题应该选most essential

Rock and Roll en Español “用西班牙语唱摇滚”

讲述了西班牙语世界的摇滚乐的发展。 之后还真有一个乐队,特别的牛,叫做Los Lobos,这个乐队得了好多次格莱美奖,甚至进入了摇滚乐名人堂。 然后摇滚乐今天仍然在西班牙语世界很火,而且有了自己的风格。

有两个非常讨人厌的标点符号题,第一题如果大家对括号的用法不够熟悉的话,就会很纠结,括号毕竟不会被其他标点符号覆盖,也不会覆盖其他标点符号。

第15题固定搭配应该选C选项for(be known for因为。 。 。 而出名) 第19题词汇题应该选D选项distinctive

Gwen Ifill’s Legacy “Gwen Ifill的遗产”

果然日常政治正确的一篇。 黑人女记者见证了黑人在政坛一路上升的过程。 首先是1980年代,然后是21世纪,从地方行政长官一路到成为总统,黑人在国内政治的道路上高歌猛进。 同时,Ifill自己也在成为国家级记者的道路上一路成功。 最终,Ifill自己为新一代的记者树立了榜样,被人视为灯塔。

第一个难点是一上来的固定搭配,第二个难点是后面出现的标点符号,人名和非限制性定语从句的问题。 第三个难点是冒号前面加不加标点符号的问题,应该是within quotation(上过我们冲刺班语法课的同学应该都很熟悉),所以不加标点直接连。 排序题比较简单,按照时间线索就可以解决。

第23题词组词汇应该选D选项 start out in (开始从事,例句: Something like 70% of Harvard graduates start out in consulting or investment banking, not just for the money but because those jobs provide good training. 70%的哈佛毕业生毕业就进入了咨询公司或者投行,不仅仅是因为钱,更因为这些工作提供了良好的培训。 )

A Plant’s Response to Temperature “植物对于温度的反应”

自然科学类的说明文。 内有图表题,非常常规的考点。 文章详细解释了为什么温度会影响指物开花的时间。

有一个非常鸡贼的句子合并题,没有选择最短的那个哦~记得要看后文哦,最短的那个是个坑哦~其他题目全部常规考点。

第35题语气题应该选C选项 environmental cues; 前面说了这是一篇正式的说明文,所以应该用最正式的语气——什么mother nature就算了啦。

数学部分

这部分比较简单,大部分是带图选择题,比如三角形,立体几何,指数,统计问题等,几乎用不到计算器,考生只需要认真答题,难度不算大。

写作部分

这次写作的文章节选自洛杉矶时报,题目是关于象牙交易的话题,这类文章比较贴近考生日常学习,写起来相对容易。

题目: How to save both elephants and the iory trade 来源: Jul. 22, 2014 issue of Los Angeles Times

试题原文:

Because of British currency restrictions enacted just before World War II, my father had to come up with an innovative way of getting his cash out of England when, fearing a German invasion, we immigrated to the United States. He settled on silver. Before leaving, he purchased all the Georgian silver objects he could find, with the idea of selling them once the family reached America.

A few months after we arrived, he opened the Harris English Silver Co. in Manhattan. While wartime rationing made many everyday items difficult to obtain, the demands of holidays, birthdays and anniversaries still required special gifts. Antique silver answered that need for many New Yorkers.

By 1944 my father had made more than enough to move the family to California, where he sold most of the remainder of his original inventory. Things were going so well that he decided to take a buying trip to England in 1948, and he took me along as his 11-year-old assistant. At each antique shop we visited, he would slowly survey the goods on display, identify the pieces of particular interest, and then have all the items brought together in one spot where he could inspect them. I was told to pick out anything that caught my eye and bring those pieces, too, to the central collection point.

I soon found that the pieces I gravitated to — boxes, doll house furnishings, knife rests, small carvings, writing implements, hand tools and the like — tended to have one thing in common: They were nearly all made of ivory.

When the shipment from that buying trip reached Los Angeles, my father gave me most of the items I had selected, and that was the start of my ivory collection. After becoming a U.S. diplomat, I added to these original items during trips abroad. And I soon became fascinated by the different uses to which ivory has been put — some practical, because of the material’s special properties, and some decorative, because of its unusual beauty.

Ivory pieces, like other artistic expressions, reflect the time and cultures that produced them. That’s one of the main reasons people collect artifacts of any sort: to preserve the best examples of cultural expression.

Today, however, ivory collections like mine — and ivory collectors themselves — are being vilified. The current debate in Washington over ivory policy has far less to do with protecting elephants than it does with satisfying the assumptions of animal rights groups, making things simple for government officials and accommodating the special wants of hunters and the special needs of musicians and museum curators. Collectors have little voice in the debate, and their collections have been likened to blood diamonds or denigrated as vanity indulgences. Any harm that American collectors suffer from the new regulations has been dismissed by Dan Ashe, director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, as collateral damage for the greater good of saving elephants.

Ashe has issued an order that virtually eliminates all trade and movement in the United States of objects made from or with ivory — no matter their origin, age or provenance — by requiring unimpeachable, detailed documentation on the ivory contained in a piece. To buy, trade or sell such pieces, collectors must have original bills of sale or repair invoices or proof of the year of importation into the United States. No collector and very few antique dealers can produce that kind of documentation, especially since none of it was required at the time most of the pieces were imported or purchased. How many treasures inherited from a relative or given as gifts come with written proof of where they came from or how they got here?

These draconian new rules have not been promulgated casually. Ashe believes that virtually ending all trade in African ivory in the United States — thus sending a message that ivory is valueless — is the best way to protect African elephants from the ravishes of poachers.

But that’s unrealistic and unproven. Today’s poaching problem has its roots in East Asia, where there is still a strong demand for and an active trade in new ivory objects. Demonizing older ivory objects to discourage possession of newer versions of similar items will not bring back the mammoths or save modern elephants from the economic forces that drive poachers.

Indeed, the International Ivory Society, on whose advisory board I sit, believes that taking valuable ivory objects out of circulation will only increase the market price for raw ivory abroad and put elephants in even more danger than at the present.

Everyone is rightly concerned with the plight of African elephants and the horrors that poachers are inflicting on herds across the continent. All of us want to find the right solution to stabilize elephant populations in Africa through sound economic and conservation policies. But the answer must not come at the expense of collectors who play such an important role in preserving important, interesting and revelatory objects in our cultural history.
