I just took the March SAT, and as a Junior in high school, it was my first SAT experience. I just got my scores back: I got a 2000 combined; a 650 reading, 690 math, 660 writing, and a 10 on the essay. Although everyone I tell my scores to says I should be happy with the scores and forget about re-taking, I can't help but feel that I could have done better. I didn't study at all, and truthfully do not see how studying could really be very helpful for a test like this. What do those of you who have taken the test multiple times think? How would you recommend I go about studying? Should I just take the ACT and forget about it? Lastly, if you think that scores can be raised by studying, how much do you think I can expect to improve my scores by doing so?
(As a side note: this is my first post, and I am confused about the "Tags" section of the forum post. It says that I can use 25 tags, but when I entered 11 it told me I had 6 more than I was allowed. I then deleted 6, and it told me that I had 3 too many, in the end it only let me use 2 tags... can anyone explain why that would be?)
