NOTE about calculators

Use of calculators during the SAT

Every question in the mathematics portion of the SAT can be solved without a calculator. However, we suggest that you bring and use a calculator, especially one with which you are familiar.

You may not use a calculator while working on the critical reading or writing portions, and must put the calculator away during these portions of the test.
