My friend recommended your guide and told me that it helped her scored 2360
I would like to know is it possible to raise my critical reading score from 540 to 750 in 4 months?
If so, what would be the best way to prepare for it?
Is it better to read a lot or practice CR a lot or both in 4 months?
ps. I memorized 2400 vocabs and managed to get only one wrong in sentence completion. I just need a lot of help in long passages
I am usually making around 7-8 mistakes per section in Critical Reading.But today sat and with no time-restriction made only one mistake in 1 section.I think i needed around 40 minutes or more.
I started practicing only one month.
Is it a good strategy to spend such a great deal of time and focus on performance or not?
If yes,when do you think is appropriate to move on time restriction?
Everyone on CC are talking about this book "Rocket Review Revolution" as the ultimate for SAT Prep. Do you recommend this? It is over $150 on amazon! Is it still being published?
I have a question on #7 of the improving sentence section.
7. To persuade his parents to let him study abroad, Kenneth described other students' positive experiences, [explains how foreign study would benefit his future career, and assured] them that he could get financial aid.
(A) No change
(B) explained how foreign study would benefit his future career, and assured
(C) explaining how foreign study is beneficial to his future career, and assures
(D) he explained how foreign study would benefit his future career, and assuring
(E) in explaining how foreign study would benefit his future career, and he assures
The answer is B but if i were to plug it in it would sound really weird...
my daughter has 2380 in SAT 1 and 800 in math 2 and hoping to get atleast 760 in Litt in October. Her GPA is 3.5 and she has 2 C's , one in Freshman year and one in her Sophomore year. We are looking at bottom 10 of the top 20 schools. Vanderbilt is the one we are seriously considering. Duke and U of Chicago are other choices. Pre-med is what she wants to do. Should we look at Ivies? Having been an active CC observer I think with Low GPA and High SAT Vanderbilt will be a good choice for her. Please HELP>
23. The number of travelers which reached the Americas, by accident or design, well before Columbus is enormous, if we are to believe every claim. No error
I still don't get this one. I know which or that have to be used for objects and who is used for people, but shouldn't which/that be correct over who since a "number" is an object?
Any help would be much appreciated.
@Silverturtle May I ask where you ended up going to college? Just curious where a 2400'er (yes, I just made that a noun) chooses to go to college.
Your box is full and I can't get chanced! :L
@Silverturtle (or anyone else) do you have any tips for a high school senior, who wants to go to med school, who's checking out colleges? Such as what factors to consider? Any ones that you recommend?
Any update on the book's progress?
Hey Silver! Do you think the best time to take the SAT is in Dec. or Jan.?
I just read one of your explanations for a question silver turtle. I saw how I just memorized basic grammatical patterns and structures without delving deep enough into them.
The ACT/SAT is literally testing the same concept every time for grammar, and you have to follow the basic rules 100% as they exist. My ACT English sub scores were 17/18 for Grammar and much lower for Rhetoric (I still managed a 30).
What would be the best way to improve my rhetorical questions so I can improve my score? Is it likely that there were patterns between them that I may have not realized?!
Thanks Silverturtle for the amazing guide! I have a quick question. You say that being an international adversely affects one's chances, listing examples of China, India, UK. I'm from Australia and I'm wondering if that applies to me too?
This question's over-analyzed, I thought, but in spite of it I got it wrong.
What's the answer here?
In (areas where deer roam freely), residents must dress to protect themselves against deer ticks that might transmit diseases.
A) areas where deer roam freely
B) areas roamed by deer freely
C) areas, freely roamed by deer
D) areas, in which there are deer that roam freely
E) areas which deer roam free
What is the answer and why are the rest of the answers wrong? Explanations? Gracias.
Silverturtle please advise. Two of my children need advice in studying for the SAT. My daughter is in 10th grade and son is in 8th grade. Both children were born in October and could of been held back a year (should of?). Mastery of public school material gives older daughter some challenges more then my son. Daughter has taken PSAT with not the greatest results. My oldest child, daughter didn't make time to really study for SAT. She is a senior now and took the SAT twice, May in junior year, 1,980 or so and September senior year 2,190. She had the self study Princeton review book and I don't think it was used intensively. My senior was very busy with clubs and year round athletics.
I want to take corrective action with my younger children and you seem to be the expert. Can you recommend a direction for me to pursue so my children can learn the necessary skills to test well?
