How to go from 2300 to 2400 on SAT: Those Last Few Questions

<p>Hi,</p>

<p>So I REALLY want a perfect 2400 on the SAT. Right now, my practice test scores are about 2310-2400. However, the "2400"'s are "imperfect" ones. </p>

<pre><code>I usually always miss 4-6 questions (total) on the tests.
</code></pre>

<p>As far as I can tell, there is no pattern to the ones I miss. Thus, does anyone know how I can study to get those last few questions down?</p>

<p>Right now, my only idea is to practice like crazy, but I'm desperately hoping for a better way....</p>

<p>There is literally no difference between a 2350/2400. </p>

<p>The only section I can give good advise on really is the math (got an 800 with ease). </p>

<p>Go as fast as you can through all the questions and mark in your answer book any that you might have gotten wrong. After completing the section in about 1/2 time, you go back to all the questions you might have gotten wrong and slowly, carefully, and painstakingly go through each problem.</p>

<p>Thanks, Greed.</p>

<p>Does any one know how to get perfect on reading comp? That the part that always gets me...</p>

<p>^Stupid Long Passages. :|</p>

<p>I believe that if you read a ton of books, you can improve that part of the test. </p>

<p>Im reading and taking practice sections alternatingly. I think reading comp. is improving.</p>

<p>If someone doesn't have an interest in reading, it will not help them. Your advice; however, is very good:

<p>Take practice sections. Can't really say anything else. I am in a similar situation, except in Writing.</p>

<p>@lolcakes: totally agree, but It's a necessary evil i guess..</p>

<p>And you know this how?</p>

<p>^^ well, obviously there is, But i think he meant that at that point-its just about a question or two at the most. So functionally there isnt really a difference.</p>

<p>If someone doesn't have an interest in reading, it will not help them</p>

<p>Who says interest is correlated with reading comprehension?
Even if you don't like reading, and you still read for comprehension improvement, you can still get better because the fact is is THAT YOU ARE STILL READING---and a little motivation/determination helps along the way if you're serious about wanting the improvement. But that doesn't necessarily mean you have to be interested.</p>

<p>People CAN eat cake and still NOT like it. Just saying....(i hope that's not true tho :))</p>

<p>^ The opposite is true too.</p>

<p>I love reading, but I suck at CR.</p>

<p>^well just reading is too simple (for some ppl ) to be a solution to improve scores on CR section, something that requires reasoning, not just reading skills.
Maybe try reading hard books, ones that can be found on sparknotes.
If you don't understand a paragraph or chapter, use sparknotes to help your comprehension; understanding hard books takes a lot of reasoning skills in itself. So that might be a viable alternative.</p>

<p>^I don't exactly suck. (700+ isn't suck). I just don't do as well as I know I can. XD</p>

<p>Ok then you're fine. </p>

<p>LMFAO you said "but I suck at CR." and then you said "I don't exactly suck. (700+ isn't suck)." LMFAO</p>

<p>ONLY on CC will you hear that.</p>

<p>I wouldn't really too much. I scored a 2350 and from what I've been told, its not much of a difference to a little higher score.</p>

<p>If you are motivated and determined, you are obviously interested. Fact of the matter is, just reading alone is not the most efficient way to improve your CR score. I was and am a very, very avid reader, reading up to a book a day before freshman year. When I took my first SAT practice, I got a 580 CR. I was astounded. After a couple of months of practice; doing 2-3 sections a week for maybe 2 months, my score is now in the ranges of 680-740 when I took my last full-length SAT practice exam.</p>
