    I'm screwed with essay. Can't write much because I currently write in print only. Now I'm deciding on whether I should start to learn cursive writing just for the essay section.

    I'm screwed in everything except for essay and writin! (Sigh!)
    HOW to improve in less than 2 weeks?!

    Beaten by Critical Reading here :sigh:
    I am practically STUCK im the mid 500s.
    Any tips?
  • eagle4022eagle4022 Posts: 79Registered User Junior Member
    I'm hovering around the 2050-2100 range right now. The one thing that I need to most improve on is critical reading. Other than that, I'm hovering around 800's for writing and math.
  • HYPMSCHYPMSC Posts: 38Registered User Junior Member
    eagle, me too! I'm stuck at 700 for CR and it just doesn't budge no matter how many tests I've taken..sighh
    Tips for CR would be http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/sat-preparation/1024138-how-i-got-800-sat-critical-reading-story-guide.html
    I''ve done a little better after reading that guide but it's still not making the necessary breakthrough to the high 700
    As for essays, one trick is to make up your own story and author to save time and make sure you fill out EVERYLINE of the two pages. Longer essays= better scores. Doesn't matter if it is total bs

    Hyp im with you. 700 stuck in CR. that guide is a great help though, especially the part where it says there is no "sounds right" in the CR section - every right answer is supported by the text. once I realized that I scored significantly higher.
  • HYPMSCHYPMSC Posts: 38Registered User Junior Member
    I have yet to make that break through..in like 9 days :((
    I realize that every answer is in the passage but I get answers wrong because I comprehended in a different meaning. Also the tone questions are annoying. I can never sense a statement when it is "wry"
  • sassygingersassyginger Posts: 17Registered User New Member
    I got a 1900 on the May SAT; 630 Math/CR and 640 Writing /8 Essay.
    I didn't really study for that one, and I put in some more preparation for this upcoming SAT. I'd love to get a 2100, or at least have one section in the 700s. :p any tips? i struggle a little with vocabulary and the harder math problems.
  • pwn2400pwn2400 Posts: 34Registered User Junior Member
    Can anyone predict what the heck the essay topic will be...just slightly nervous for essay otherwise probably can get at least a 2250
  • eagle4022eagle4022 Posts: 79Registered User Junior Member
    well, sassyginger...

    The vocabulary: you have to study. There's no other way.
    Harder math problems: the only way is to think...that's what the SAT is testing for. The problems are solvable
  • 5am69965am6996 Posts: 243Registered User Junior Member
    Do you think Essential 500 is good enough for the vocab?
  • HYPMSCHYPMSC Posts: 38Registered User Junior Member
    yeah not much time left anyway lolz
  • sassygingersassyginger Posts: 17Registered User New Member
    when do you guys think we'll be getting the scores back after the exam is taken? late october, early november?
