How Accurate are SAT Practice Tests?

<p>Has anyone noticed any significant discrepancies in the scores they got from the Blue Book tests and that from the actual SAT?</p>

<p>No, I have not.</p>

<p>I'll tell you in 2 days.</p>

<p>ClubSandwichGuy,</p>

<p>I think in general practice tests are pretty accurate. You should take the average of your scores though, so if you score a 1900, 1900, and then a 2300, don't expect that on the test you'll necessarily score a 2300.</p>

<p>I'm trying to remember, but I think most tutors recommend that you average the scores of your last 3 practice exams.</p>

<p>Significant? No. Slight? Maybe.</p>

<p>The blue book is made up of actual SAT tests, so I can't see there being a large discrepancy between the two.</p>

<p>I somehow got lower scores in the Practice Book. However, the testing environment and the fact that doing the test is for practice are two factors why I receive lower scores.</p>

<p>I thought they were very accurate too.</p>

<p>Throughout high school I always wished that my scores could be slightly higher... but unfortunately, no, they were the same as the BB practice tests.</p>

<p>My BB tests were pretty accurate indicators.</p>

<p>It also happened to me sometimes that I would score lower on my practice tests because I subconsciously was not trying as hard as I did on the official exam.</p>

<p>I somehow got lower scores on bb tests as well... more than 200 pts less...</p>

<p>I have no idea why because I was trying just as hard and the questions seemed just as hard. Maybe the curves are harsher because they use one generalized curve for all tests?</p>

<p>Edit: I scored the sameish score every time i took a test even a couple days before the sat.</p>

<p>The BB practice tests are very accurate</p>
