Accuracy of Actual SAT?

<p>Heya everyone,</p>

<p>Just wanted to ask a quick question about the practice SAT tests from the College Board. Are they an accurate prediction when it comes to the actual test in terms of difficulty and overall score?</p>

<p>I'm taking the SAT for the first time this Oct. as a senior (ACT taker) and the practice scores were as followed:</p>

<p>CR-680
Math-700
Writing-660
Total= 2040</p>

<p>Is this a good representation? Truthfully a little higher than I thought I'd get since it was my first try so I'm suspicious</p>

<p>From what I have seen, College Board-made tests are pretty accurate. </p>

<p>And YES. 2040 is AWESOME for first try in a practice test.</p>

<p>Thanks for the input kimhm92!! =]</p>

<p>I was just really surprised at my score since my goal on the SAT was to just score above 2000...</p>

<p>Well another test tomorrow will help determine if it was just luck ^_^</p>

<p>I'd like to know the result! I'll be taking mine tomorrow too! I take it every Tuesday and Thursday. I can't be like the CCers and take practice exams twice everyday.</p>

<p>You're pretty well-rounded. I'm in the 500-range for CR, and 700-range for Math and Writing.. :(</p>

<p>Tell me about it, I've read that some people just study for the SAT 24/7 and it's a bit much. And I don't know what the purple frown face is for? =]
You are solid in two areas and just need to brush up a little on CR!! CR in my opinion seems the easiest to remedy for you =]</p>

<p>Tell ya what. Let's have a competition...(friendly off course) on who gets a higher score tomorrow. We can PM our results to each other and truthfully it'll be nice to have someone to compare to once in awhile ^_^</p>

<p>I agree. I can't even look at an SAT book for one hour straight. I need break every like 30 minutes.</p>

<p>GREAT. I accept your little challenge lol. I am going to take the Princeton Review 2010 Edition Practice exam. #6 or 7. Princeton exams' difficulty is similar to the actual ones'.
If you're taking Barron's or something, it's not comparable though. Barron's mad hard.</p>

<p>Same here...one hour max but I switch from studying the SAT and ACT, each test has their own week. Also need to read Paradise Lost by the time school starts again <em>sigh</em></p>

<p>And sure thing, I grade my test next day so I won't have my score until the 4th. And I heard Barrons is a tough one so I stayed away. I'm using the CB SAT book. WellI look forward to tomorrow (strangely)</p>

<p>All right! But yeah.. I take SAT on Tuesday and ACT on Thursday. I can't really study for ACT, b/c I don't have like a guide/prep book for that. Just the official ACT prep book, which only gives 3 practice exams. I am loaded with 4 AP summer homework for my school as well. Ugh.. And I just finished a book called The Separate Peace, although not my English book I am supposed to read... God I am really behind on school work.</p>

<p>"I agree. I can't even look at an SAT book for one hour straight. I need break every like 30 minutes."</p>

<p>Same here, but this is with any type of studying. AP's, regular tests, I just get so bored... It's why I didn't study for the ACT.</p>

<p>The Real Act Prep Book isn't too bad...I use it =]
My goals as of now are a 30+ on the ACT and a 2000+ on the SAT! =]</p>

<p>And yeah...gotta love summer work! And if you mean "A Separate Piece" than I can vouch for it, I likes it.</p>

<p>Yup. I meants "A Separate Peace." I hope you are not like that on the Writing sec.</p>

<p>No worries, in my defense I am tired and typing on an iTouch which is rather challenging for me.</p>

<p>Well regardless I hear they don't take a lot off in the writing section for small grammar errors though I can see your concern as I re-read my last post =0</p>
