Wood5440, are there any books you recommend that are difficult? I want to begin reading more novels in general because I regret reading so little. I doubt I have time for any improvements on the SAT by reading books in such short time, but, I want to become a better reader overall. That thread you found seems extremely useful and I will definitely try that technique next time I take a practice test. I will practice as much as I can before I take the real SAT and hopefully I can at least break a 600.
