How long did it take you to prepare for the SAT when you got a 1450+/1500+?

I'm starting to study now for the August 2020 SAT and hoping to get a 1450+ then (higher would be great). I'm also saving October/November to retake it. So I have about 4 months. Please let me know how long it took you to study and achieve a 1450+/1500+ and any tips you have. Thank you!

    That is solely based on each individual. Some people don't need to study at all and can get a 1600.....others may spend hundreds of hours and can't get a top score. Figure out what YOU need to do to succeed.

    You have almost 4 months to prepare for August SAT. Spending several hours a day to practice will improve the scores. If you never take SAT before a lot of practice is needed. Now it is good timing to start preparing. Good luck!

    Do some practice tests. Check online for reviews of different practice test books, and make sure to time yourself or have someone time you. My D20 got a 1400 with no prep and a 1490 at the next test sitting by doing some practice tests. Now, she is a naturally good test taker, so that is certainly a factor in her success. She also took challenging classes in school.
