    @Dika99 Practice makes perfect. Work on getting familiar with typical SAT questions. I took the SAT in June, and scored a 1480/1600 ( 760 Maths / 720 Reading&Writing ) . I have spent two hours each day working on my READING/Writing. I am an international student, so reading is my weak point. I advise you to explore more the Khanacademy and have a will to finish at least 60 questions per day. Consistency is the key.
    If you need anything else, you can go ahead, and ask.

    @theultimatedream I have been practicing for 6 hours everyday and i don't know what is the problem
    i'm not worried about the math but the reading is my huge problem ( also an international student)
    what else were you doing ??

    @Dika99 : I read a lot. I also used a lot of reading from the previous SAT tests so I can get used to the verbose, complicated texts- I DO NOT know if this might help you or not- . Did you take practice tests from College board? If yes, did you witness a little bit of progress?
