I'm really satisfied with my score. On the Dec. SAT, I scored a 1090... very depressive.

I studied a lot, an average 2 hours a week. I took it may 3rd and scored a 1300.

I think this improvement is pretty impressive.

Dec: M 600, V 490
May: M 710, V 590

I used SAT 1600 by Kaplan and the Kaplan workbooks

Hopefully I'll score a 1400 next year. I really have to study for that verbal!

it's good to see that your work paid off. if you keep up the work, who knows, mabye you'll bump that score up another 210 pts.

M_Eduardo you have got to help me. I was in a really similar situation, i got a 1060 on my psats last yr but ended up with a 1350 on my first SAT in april.
psat 540V 520M
april '03 750V 600M
