I'm currently working through my Barrons SAT II books, and I was just wondering what I can expect on the real thing. If one is consistantly scoring 650-700 on Barrons tests, is a low 700 on the actual test a realistic goal?

i hear the barrons tests are the harder lot. So yer, i guess it is realistic. i've been working on Barrons too, and i've been getting the same score (650-700 range). So yah, i hope a low 700 is feasible....well, shrugs, we'll see anyway...

Last year I did Barrons chem, got in the 700s on practices and in the 600s on the real thing. The Barrons wasn't equal to the real thing, one question type was easy in the Barrons but hard in the real one, another was hard in Barrons but easy on the real thing. Did that make sense? I have SAT brain right now. . .
