I did atrociously on the Math SAT Level 2 and think that even if I take it again I won't do THAT much better, but I have a feeling I could do very well on the Math SAT level 1. Given that the colleges already see my horrible SAT Math Level 2 score, would they disregard it if I did well on the Math Level 1 or do I need to take Math Level 2 again to make up for it?
650 still isnt that great for competitive schools. i suggest you really study your ass off for that math 2 if you take it...make sure you are confident with the material because if you mess up the sat math iic that wont look good at all
I'm in same situation...deciding on 1c or 2c...from today's practice exams...1c score - 760 .. 2c score - 680 - which one should I take? I'm more confident w/ 1c..2c I struggled with and left a lot blank.
paungle: 720 is fine. anything above 700 is pretty good.
kchen: i would recommend barron's...it's more challenging than the exam itself and might drive you crazy, but hey, it gave me an 800. if math is your weak point though you might not want barron's...it could stress you out too much.
muchas gracias. ^^v yea i hate the people who post flames. i mean hellooo...i think we're all kinda stressed out right now...don't need to make it worse for some poor panicky guy with a derogatory comment...
If you know Precalc you should have no problem with the Math IIC. It is much more lenient than the IC. I bought the PR book and looked it over. Thought it was pretty simple stuff so just didnt bother studying and still did pretty well.
btw I dislike the Barrons book. Use that if you are over obsessive and wants to over prepare. Some of the math in there was pretty difficult compared to the actual ones.
I feel like an idiot......i took physics, math level 2 and level 1......how nerdy can i get.....attempted to take world history but chickened out.....what else can i take?
What's better to report? I score well on Math I and Math II and got the same score. Is it better to report the higher percentile Math I or the more challenging Math II, if I need to pick one to put on the application.

Having a 540 SAT Math I! C and a >700 Math I C
or
taking over the SAT Math II C and getting probably around a 650

Congrats on the 800 btw! =)
