• One or two sections of math (25-50 minutes)
• One reading section (25 minutes)
• One writing section (10 minutes)
• Additional worksheets, reading, vocabulary, corrections, or new essay examples (15 minutes)
1 hour and 40 minutes total

    When I prepared for the SAT, mine was less structured (usually just did a few sections when I had the time). I didn't bother spending over 1 1/2 hrs on any given day unless I took a full practice test. My math was already solid 800's so I spent all my time on reading/writing, which seemed to help.

    @bhph11: That's a pretty rigorous study plan... When are you taking the test?

    Taking it in January and again in February. I've been more or less giving it around 5 hours a day so far give or take. I'm just always panicking and I feel like I never learn anything. I wish I had 50 practice SAT tests on a stack neatly on my desk and I could study off of those.

    I feel extremely overwhelmed. Perhaps it's because I'm disorganized, but this is ridiculous. I wish I had some confirmation that what I'm doing is working (doubt it btw!). I need to break 2100 sooo bad. I took the SAT once during Senior year cold and I did poorly. Now I need to transfer out of here and I'm panicking. It's great.
