Realistic Goal??

<p>I just took the SATs again and scored a 1840 (old 1220)...i am using the Real ACT prep book to prepare for the June 9th testing.</p>

<p>Can I score a 30 on the ACT? Keep in mind I will have Junior year English/Math completed and I am solid at analyzing data, which the science questions are on.</p>

<p>Right now, it looks like I fall on the cusp of a 28 (when you convert the 1220), so it would be a pretty solid improvement. </p>

<p>Any other things I should take into consideration while studying (i.e. other books, strategies, etc)?</p>

<p>The math goes to precalc/trig, unlike the SAT. Many people do better on the ACT, so it's a realistic goal.</p>

<p>I scored lower than you the first time I took the SAT and I got a 31 on the ACT (but I'm retaking June 9th as well.) Don't feel like there's a limit on how well you can do, go in confident. Study and be confident.</p>

<p>The science thing DEFINITELY gives you a boost, so yes, I do think you can pull a 30 if you have really studied. If English is one of your weak spots, study grammar. It's not terribly time-consuming and it will help your score tremendously if you can get up in the 30's for English.</p>

<p>GOOD LUCK :)</p>

<p>EDIT:: Also, I recommend the Princeton Review book for reviewing. It helped me immensely.</p>
