I took the May SAT thinking I would easily get 1800ish without studying. I received my score the other day and turns out I got 480 reading, 580 math, and 520 writing. I was so disappointed in my self for not studying.
I told myself that for the next 4 months, I'll study as much as I can and hopefully increase my score to around 1800. 1900 if I try really hard.
I mainly need to get my reading section up since its my weakest. I ordered the blue book, Princeton Review's, Cracking the SAT book, and Barron's vocab flash cards.
My question is, how can I best utilize my time to get the highest increase? When people say they do a practice test every week or so, do they mean all 10 questions? It's really tough for me to do that since they're so many people in my house and I can never concentrate.
What is the proper way to study for the SAT? I can't afford a tutor so i'm not going yup be deterring one. Id like to do everything on my own please.
