How to Raise SAT score by 200 pts in 3 months?

Hi, my gpa isn't exactly fantastic so I'm depending on a great SAT test score. on the most recent sat I got an 1880. how can I improve by about 200 points to get 2100? I'm applying to colleges in November and I figured November and December are the last two possible times I can take it. (BIO-E retake in October) what's the most effective way to improve on the SATs? thanks

I've seen how much I can improve by studying. I had a 1st semester sophomore gpa of 3.0 weighted and it went to a 4.33 weighted gpa by 2nd semester of junior year

math: 590, cr: 630, writing: 660
goal: math 650, cr 700, writing: 750

I recently bought barron's book and have studied the included flashcards, and I got the blue book.

    You've bought the Collegeboard Blue Book, which is the first step I would've suggested anyways. Working through that entire book by November/December should give you enough practice. I was in your situation back in March with essentially the same score and i improved 190 points in 3 months. I didn't get through all of the BB, but i feel that if i had, i could have reached 2150+. Your math is the section you could improve the most on. You say you want to reach 650; I think you could reach 700+ with enough practice. Practice gets you used to the types of questions that are on the SATs, and prepares you the best!
