Dr. Gary Gruber, a theoretical physicist and educator, has dedicated his life to understanding the critical thinking skills essential in test-taking.

Gruber has dozens of books published and was even dubbed a "super genius" by the Washington Post in 1995

With impending changes to the SAT due to take place in just a few short months, his advice may be even more sought after than ever.

Gruber created a short quiz for prospective test takers (or just curious readers) to take to see how they would perform on the exam.

The new version of the SAT will revert back to scoring out of 1600, rather than 2400 as is the case for the current exam. There will also be four, rather than the current five, multiple choice answers in the new version. The College Board, the company that owns and publishes the SAT, also says these changes will align more with the skills that matter most for college readiness and success.

Ace it? Bomb it? Somewhere in between? Once you've taken the quiz, click here to see Gruber's full explanation of each correct answer.
