Frequently Asked Questions About the SAT
In short: yes, if you guess strategically.
On multiple choice questions with five answers, you lose points for
guessing incorrectly. But if you can cross off some of the five choices
that you know are wrong, then the gamble becomes worth it.
This is all part of the SAT as a reasoning test--you are rewarded for
knowing the right answer, and also for knowing that some of the answers
are wrong. Sometimes in a verbal question you can nail the right answer
just by eliminating the four wrong answers.
