Please help raise my score

<p>Okay I know these scores are very low compared to others on here but here goes,</p>

<p>I took the SAT I in June for the second time and got this:
Math: 610
CR: 560
Writing: 590</p>

<p>Im planning to take the test again in October so I have about 2 months and this would most probably be the last time I take it. As I'm in the IB it would be hard to study every day but I'm ready to manage 5 days a week as I really do want to get a better score.</p>

<p>So can someone please help me in answering:
1. By approximately how much can I increase my scores from now to October studying 5 days a week say 2 hours everyday? (I'll do practice tests on weekends)
2. I have the Princeton, Barrons and will get the blue book, which 2 should i focus on most?
3. Do you know any other resources out there except books that I could use to prepare from?</p>

<p>If any more details are needed please don't hesitate to ask.</p>

<li><p>Depends on what you're studying. 2 hrs a week for 5 days for 2 months (60ish hrs) is somewhat iffy for a significant point increase though.</p></li>
<li><p>Definitely BB. I'd say Barrons, but some people would probably disagree with me.</p></li>
<li><p>Search function. Google. Stickies.</p></li>
</ol>

<p>Hey said 2 hrs a day, 5 days a week.</p>

<p>If you study effectively than you will raise your score.</p>

<p>Being in IB doesn't neccesarily mean your a genius, but it does mean you're smart enough that you should spend the majority of your time studying content.</p>

<p>Try and focus your energy on studying the ins and outs of the test, the certain techniques you need to use in order to most effectively use your knowledge.</p>

<p>being able to think like the test is the majority of the SAT battle</p>

<p>How do the scores you posted compare with the scores you received when you took the SAT for the first time? If these scores are significantly higher than your first attempt it would indicate you are on an upward trajectory as you become more familiar with the test and rigorously preparing for the test should result in significantly higher scores on your next attempt. On the other hand, if these scores are about the same or lower your chances of a major increase in your scores is less likely.</p>

<p>You should be studying every hour of the day.</p>

<p>^ hahhahahaha.</p>

<p>Not quite that, but consider stepping your study time up to 3-4 hours a day.</p>

<p>I honestly dont think 3-4 hours is necessary, but thats just me.</p>

<p>^ Assuming that he doesn't do anything else the rest of the day, 3-4 hrs isn't that much of a sacrifice. Enough time to go through a 3-4 sections and review them. And, there's a little extra time to do vocab, brush up on math, etc.</p>

<p>Use only the blue book!</p>
