What do you think of this?

<p>Hi guys,</p>

<p>As for a SAT study. What do you think of this idea and how effective it might be.</p>

<p>For the remaining "x" weeks until the SAT, what if I was to focus one one subject for entire week, then the second subject another etc. So the first week, study math and practice only on math. Second week, just critical reading/vocab. Third week, only writing skills/essay practice. Then the fourth week, kinda bring it all together again for an entire test. And repeat for the remaning weeks if necessary.</p>

<p>What do you think of that, I would love to hear suggestions or other ideas.</p>


<p>I would think splitting up a week into 2/2/2 then 1 day of testing would be better than what you're doing. That's just my opinion though</p>

<p>I think that is a very balanced plan. If there is one subject you particularly need to do better in, either focus more, do more practice, and spend more time on that section. </p>

<p>I would still recommend taking 4 practice tests if you follow that format- one after each week of studying. As we all know, practice makes perfect, and if you carefully review what you missed on practice, you will be that much more prepared and comfortable for the real thing.</p>

<p>Thank you guys.</p>

<p>I kinda like magentaturtle's idea. Just thinking about studying 1 subject for an entire week seems somewhat boring. But mixing it up every 2 days actually sounds smart. I think I'll try that.</p>

<p>@Archite. Do you think there is a max number of practice tests someone should take before it just becomes pointless, or is each time you take it another step forward?</p>

<p>Doing practice tests are great. That's how most people get better I would think.</p>

<p>Interesting plan. I like the idea or focusing and rotating, though when I did my study I started with mostly doing bits of each subject each day, sometimes just one subject, sometimes all three. Towards the end, though, practice tests are the way to go.</p>

<p>And csninja, my opinion is that each practice test will help, even if the return decreases each time. Practice tests are also the best way to maintain an SAT mindset, which is very important, like staying in shape for a sport. I took over 20 tests, and it never got pointless</p>

<p>That's interesting. Thank you guys.</p>

<p>I need to get the grudgingly 2200+ in order to get my EC's noticed. How did you guys study for score around that?</p>

<p>just saying, i know it's stressed to get a 2200+ for ivies, but <em>disclaimer</em> most colleges don't give a **** about SAT's anymore.</p>

<p>^ completely false...</p>
