How long does it take?

<p>Based on your own experience, how much studying did it take for you to get a good score (2100+)? No super-scores.</p>

<p>You can't accurately assess your own situation based off of the anecdotes of others. There are people who can score 2100+ without any prep whatsoever, while others will probably never surpass that score limit no matter how much they study.</p>

<p>Hi Mariya,</p>

<p>I agree with the above statement. I scored a 2350, but my score only began to increase when I began really focusing and studying. </p>

<p>When I first began studying, I took a Princeton Review class but my score was still really low because I didn't care at the time. </p>

<p>I wouldn't think of how much time you need to study, but more think about how much you need to focus on the test.</p>

<p>I scored 2280 on the official practice test (without any prior preparation besides some PSAT practice tests and the PSAT itself) and 2220 on the official test after about 5-10 Kaplan practice tests and 10-15 cumulative hours of fine-tuning specific skills.</p>

<p>First time I took the official practice SAT, I got a 1850 (750 CR, 500 M, 640 W). That was on Jan. 1, 2010. The last time I took one (practice test) (yesterday) I scored a 2210 (740 CR, 700 M, 770 W). It took me around 5 months of concentrated effort to raise my score by that much. Hopefully I do as well on the June 5th SAT!</p>

<p>Mariya,</p>

<p>How are you scoring now? That'll definitely make a difference when setting your goal for a 2100.</p>
