How to score high on SAT?

<p>So next year i'll be taking my SAT for the first time. I would really like 2250+. I've asked this before, and everyone says to get the blue book and they say it's good but it doesent give you strategy. What books will give you strategy??? Also, which flashcards should I get? PLEASE HELP!</p>

<p>Direct Hits and Blue Book.
Do the practice tests in the Blue Book and check the answers online and learn from them - it's all the "strategy" you need.
Contrary to popular belief, there's no "secret key" to the SAT. Practicing is what gets you your score (as well as intelligence and paying attention in school) so do that.</p>
