wsup ppl
i was wondering if anyone could give me tips on how to improve my score. the thing is whenever i take a timed practice test i get a horrible score like 1100-1190. but wen i take an untimed test with no pressure i get around a 1350. wut are some ways i can get done with each section faster and be more confident in my answers w/o triple checking them. im takin the sat in march (27th) so i really need ur advice. thanks

I would tell you to be more confident with your answers so that you won't have to triple check them. Do the problems at a pace where you get the ones that you should get right and still have time to complete the section. What it all comes down to is how much you know...just take the test naturally and don't get all nervous. Basically...if you want to do the section faster, you have to know the material better and confidence is something that is gained from your knowledge.

Work on your fundamentals more, before taking any more timed tests. Also I would use the strategies in Cracking the SAT book. They are very good for timing.
