Anyone studying like hell over the summer for SAT I and II's. I need to study:

Writing SAT II
Math IIC
SAT I

The bad thing is, I suck at all of these so I have to basically start from scratch. Do you think that I will see a significant increase in my score if I finish these books:

SAT I:
Barrons + vocab
Princetons Review
Grubers
10 Real Sats

Math IIC:
Barrons

Writing:
Barrons, PR, and Kaplans

So how exactly do you guys plan to study for standardized tests over the summer?

Jason...

Summer is the time when kids take a "break" from studying.

You'll have a nervous breakdown by the time your 19.

Do fun things! Invigorate your mind and body for the fall/winter.

Gees. Enjoy your teen years!

what is your highest SAT 1 score???

Yeah, Jason I'll be studying like crazy too. I'm studying for the SAT 1, Math 1C, and maybe writing. (I'm taking writing in June, so if I don't do well I will retest) As for the books you got...they all have my recommendation. Specifically PR and Barrons for the SAT 1 and Kaplan's for the SAT II writing. It's going to be a pain spending all this time studying but it will have overwhelming benefits. The peace and mind I will have in the summer of my senior year (now THAT is the perfect time to relax) knowing that I got into the college of my choice is worth it. Good luck!

I agree, APguy

My latest SAT I record is 1340 (from 10 Real SATS). I think my May 3 score was lower though.

SAT I (math only)
