SAT Prep

<p>I just got back my P-SAT scores and was pretty disappointed. I got 61 CR, 63 M, and 60 W. Obviously, I need to improve before I take the SAT. I'm currently a sophomore, so I don't have too much time before I have to take the SAT. I'd like to be around 70 CR, 75 M, and 70 W. So my question is what techniques/materials do you think would be helpful? I realize that you can use "brute" studying to improve scores, and I'm willing to spend 5+ hours a week studying for the SAT during the school year, and maybe as much as 20 hours a week during the summer.</p>

<p>So any recommendations would be appreciated.</p>

<p>check out xiggi's thread and do a thread search. These questions have been asked hundreds of times. If you have any more questions after that, feel free to ask.</p>

<p>You should be taking the SAT when you're a junior, so you have a ton of time.</p>

<p>less than one year.... Anyways I read "xiggi's plan", and found it to be pretty useful, but I was wondering if anybody else did anything else than really helped them, especially someone whom had low scores to begin with like myself. My other question is - how much can I reasonably expect my scores to increase? I'd like to score at least 2100 or higher and right now I'm in the low 1800's. So I'd like to set a higher goal, but I wasn't sure how much I could reasonably expect to increase.</p>

<p>It's more efficient to self study. I was in about the same boat as you, and I got 2150 on the Oct. SAT. I'm still studying, and I'm hovering around 2250 right now. It's definitely possible, you just have to put in some dedicated study.</p>

<p>What materials did you use? Did you just take the practice tests over and over again?</p>
