On the official SAT, I got a 660 in Critical Reading and a 710 in writing with a 10 essay. I'm looking to improve my Critical Reading score to a ~750 and a 800 writing.
Can anyone give me tips on improving Critical Reading? I missed around 7 questions: 3 difficult vocabulary ?s and 4 reading passage comprehension ?s. I'm studying up difficult difficult vocabulary over the summer and trying to understand the pattern in Critical Reading ?s (main purpose, tone, author's purpose, literary technique, structure, etc). Usually, I get suck between two answer choices for reading passage questions and end up picking the wrong one.
For writing, I dont think I can score a 11 on the essay since I'm consistently getting 10's. I'm looking to improve the multiple choice questions. I usually get 3-5 wrong. Any ideas as to how I should study grammar rules? I keep getting identifying errors questions wrong. Sometimes, I mistakenly circle "no error" when there is an error deeply hidden within the sentence. Other times I circle a word that's already correct, so the answer is indeed "no error."
