SAT Math Prep: The BAR graph questions

Graphs and Tables are an all time favorite with SAT math test developers. The data is quite easily presented and it is also possible to frame at least three to four questions on a single diagram, giving ample opportunity to the test developers to grill the students in the right way.

However, you should know that by constant practicing, you can virtually ace all kinds of questions asked in SAT mathematics and get high SAT scores.
