Improving in my second Sat test

rhshanksrhshanks Registered User Posts: 58 Junior Member
I took my first Sat early this year, but since I got a score of 1550, I decided to retake it. I have already registered for the Nov 3 Sat. I performed lowest in my reading section? The reason is both that I face difficulties in understanding the passage(s) and that I don't finish in time. Sometimes I might be left with 8 questions. In the writing section, I don't get the time to even start on the improving paragraphs questions.

Currently, I'm just cramming more of the vocabulary words and doing more practice tests and revising them.
Is there any advice you can give me to improve in my speed and in the reading section?

Sorry if this is not the right section for this thread

Thanks in advance
