On the March SAT, I think I got a much better Verbal score than I deserved (I usually get 680v-720v on the 10RS) But my math scores are usually higher than 710. I'm afraid of taking the test again and having my verbal drop 40-50 points. But I want a higher math score. Should I reake? Or should I not push my luck?

Gameguy56 - I was in the EXACT same position as you. I'm more of a math person. 80 M on the PSAT, 67 V but I got 710 M 740 V on the December SAT (I was SURE I'd gotten an 800 Math; I was shocked when I got my score back.) I took the test again in March hoping to improve my score, figuring that I could get the 800 Math at least even if my verbal dropped. Turns out I got a 1600; so, couldn't hurt to retake.
(This wasn't an entire surprise, given my verbal WAS consistently increasing and I had a few math slips ups. However, the fact is that a 740 V is within the capable range of getting an 800; if you think you can get an 800 math then you stand a great shot at not only 800 M but 800 V as well. Go for it)
