Does anybody know how reliable the PSAT practice test, that you get when you sign up, is? I did it today.... and got like a 58 writing! Which sucks because I'm going to need around an 65 to get national merit. Anyways, I was wondering if it was officially college board sanctioned material.
Lol...I hope it's reliable b/c my CR score was 79, which I thought was a big joke, considering that I don't usually score higher than a 60 on CR section..
Well I can give you guys some advice. I bought a lot of PSAT booklets and I scored reasonably well on CR S.C. 15-17 correct, but the real SAT shook me up.
A 221, by all means, is not bad. If you got that on a real SAT, your SAT score will not be the deciding factor on why you got in to the school you wanted or did not get in.
Can someone explain the last grid in math question in the 2009 PSAT booklet. It was the only one I had a problem with.
It was the one where 2.5 was the answer. Anyone please?

This is from another thread in which I responded to this question:
"Draw it out. The line x=3.5 is 2.5 from the vertical line drawn through the circle's center. The radius is 2.5, so the exterior point must be a radial distance away. Therefore, the y is unchanged."

when i did the practice, i felt like i had already done the exact same questions last year...
So, I hope it's reliable.
I did every math section in less than 11 minutes and every reading section in less than 15 minutes. I didnt check over anything and still got 219
Being my pathetic self, I only got a 221.
