HELP studying for SAT for 5+ hours per day to raise score?

I'm going on to my senior year and i haven't taken the SAT yet. My projected PSAT score was around a 148. (I didn't study at all). Bad score I know. It's summer break and i want to study for 5+ hours a day for the SAT?

Any tips on how to get a high score? I started out with a 1500, average score, without studying at all and I want a 2000+. Please don't tell me that 5 hours is too long, I want to get a high score. Any tips that'll motivate or help me? Is it possible to raise it by a lot? Any similar inspiring stories? Thanks.

    Won't say a word because more than 5 hours a day of studying is too long and counterproductive to your goal of raising your score.

    So how long should I study to increase my score?

    Self-studying won't help you much. Get a tutor or a study group. And 5 hours a day?? That's way too much. Grab some friends and start an SAT study group, meet for a few hours every week. Best of luck!! :)
