hopefully I posted this in the right place...I lurk around a lot but I have never posted before OTL
To get to the point, my SAT score is a 1660. I'm really upset with myself about that, but I sucked it up and now I'm going to study like a madwoman. I want to get a 1900-2000. I know the score increase is hard, but I am seriously willing to work for it. I didn't sign up for any tests yet and I'm a junior, so there is no super urgent time period ("I have to get a 400 point increase in two months!")
Critical Reading: 520
Writing: 560 (11 on essay)
background information that you might not really need to know:
I took this SAT in December. I'll be honest, I didn't study for it. The most prep I did was go to a summer class from July-August that did practically nothing for me (my SAT score went up around 50 points in that class...and I'm not even sure if it was thanks to that class because the teachers were horrible). Since I get As and high Bs in honors/AP classes I thought I was totally prepared. Clearly, I was wrong.
I am currently taking a Princeton Review course (so I have the PR 11 SATs and SAT manual) and own the blue book, barron's writing workbook, barron's critical reading workbook, and various practice SATs that I collected from my friends and free SAT pratice pamphlets. My cousin gave my the SATII math I and math II books from barron's so I just use them to study for math. I have to real plan going right now with the books, I just do them whenever I have free time.
I know that having a score increase is hard, but I am really willing to put in work. Please suggest ideas and give me plenty of suggestions/tips/tricks! I am willing to try anything out. If possible, after writing out your plan, suggest when I should take my next SAT (after following _____ method, try taking the June SAT, etc)
