Is there any way to determine what the ‘practice section’ of the SAT exam is?

The practice section of the SAT is a section that isn’t scored, but used for College Board’s testing purposes.  Unfortunately, there is no way to tell which section is the “practice section,” other than you know it isn’t the first or last section.  The first section of the exam is the essay, and the last section is distinct in terms of time given and number of questions asked. Ultimately, the best advice is to try your hardest on each individual section, and hope that your best scores were not in the practice section.
