can i study for the sat in a week?

<p>Here's the situation. I am a freshman at the rather mediocre University of Houston. I want to transfer out bad. I ended the semester with a 3.97 gpa and want to continue my education at a top 30 school</p>

<p>I took the SAT during the October of Junior year and scored a 1520. I took that test completely unprepared at a point in my life where I did not care about school at all. </p>

<p>Later into high school I took both AP language classes and was able to pass both of them. This semester I took a remedial math course and did awesome so I pretty much got the fundamentals of algebra locked down. </p>

<p>My question:</p>

<p>Has anyone had success in studying for a week and making an improvement? </p>

<p>I'm aiming for at least an 1800.</p>


<p>Yes. Dedicate 100% of this week to the college board blue book and take the pratice tests/read around on CC like Xiggi etc. Take the practice tests. You can do it!</p>

<p>Yep. I will advise reading the threads on here for strategies before going on to take timed practice tests. Take a lot of timed practice tests, you might even bag a 2000+ score.</p>

<p>Thanks for all the advice, this week is the first week of classes but in all honesty, we never do anything the first week so I will be able to dedicate the majority of my time to studying.</p>

<p>I took a few of the practice math tests and damn geometry is killing me, gonna get tutored at the uni math center this week. Thanks again.</p>

<p>Hi everyone,</p>

<p>I’m in the same position as robertrulez. I scored 1700 on my first SAT attempt (I didn’t study or even care). I scored 1770 on my second SAT attempt (I studied a bit). I scored 1960 on my third SAT attempt (I actually put some effort into what I studied). I’m considering a fourth SAT attempt in January with standby testing. My goal is 2000+; do you guys think that it’s worth a shot?</p>
