Vocab Cramming: Worth it/Possible?

<p>I usually miss 1/2 sentence completion questions on practice tests. I have two questions:
A): Is it worth it to study vocab in the week I have until the June SAT, or should I just take more practice tests this weekend and hope for the best?</p>

<p>B): If the answer to A) is yes, then would it be wise/possible to go through the Direct Hits books in the coming week?</p>

<p>P.S.: I'm aiming for an 800CR.</p>

<p>Thanks All!</p>

<p>Aiming for an 800 when you get half the sentence completion questions wrong? </p>

<p>You can go with Direct Hits, but I would only do that if you have the time and if you already are very good on passage-based reading. I don't think it's normal to get all the passage-based questions correct and get half the sentence completion correct. Be realistic about that 800 goal...cramming doesn't work so well.</p>

<p>A) Just take practice tests.</p>

<p>lol, I just ordered Direct Hits and probably won't get it until Wednesday...that gives me about three days for 400 words. </p>

<p>I am pretty good at cramming though...</p>

<p>@Ammadsh: There are definitely about 15 sentence completion questions. 1 or 2 is not half of 15.
I'm already really good at passage questions (I usually miss 1 at most).</p>

<p>How much time would it take to go through the second volume of direct hits?</p>

<p>silverturtle in another thread told me that you could probably go through DH in a day...not sure how much work that would be though and how much you'd actually retain...but that's what I plan on doing, and then reviewing the next couple of days</p>

Sorry, I misunderstood your first post where you said you miss 1/2 of the sentence completion questions. I thought you meant one half, not one or two. Also, I'm not totally sure, but I believe that the actual amount is about 19 or so sentence completion questions in total. </p>

<p>In that case, go for it if you have the time.</p>
