I plan on studying for at least 3 hours a day, five days a week. I scored a 1900 without studying and I need to boost my score from a 1900 to a 2100 and would love a 2200. Isn't the SAT supposed to be "study proof". I've heard that your score can generally only be raised 300 points and that it's nearly impossible to do that. I need to raise both my writing and math score to something over 700. I understand this limit on score improvement for critical reading, but for the writing section I've found that the same concepts are tested over and over again. I studied for the writing section for maybe a total of 6 hours after taking the real test and I've gotten a 780,750, and 800 on college board practice tests (increase from 610). I would also assume that there is a similar, though less extreme, amount of predictability in the math section. Do you think putting 15 hours a week of SAT prep could yield a 300+ score increase? I don't know if this would be overkill but with my stats, a 2200 sat score could put me in the running for colleges like Amherst as opposed to colleges like Trinity.
