For those of you who have completed some or all of the practice tests, how have you faired?

How many did you get right? Did you get more and more right as the practice tests went along?

And how did you do on the test in 22 Real SAT II's?

Myself, I got 30 right on the first couple. By the last few I got about 35 of them correct. I have one more to take in Barron's, and I am yet to take the one in 22 Real SAT II's. I will post what I get on the real one after I take it later today. My expectations are high; I'm hoping it's a lot easier than the Barron's practice tests.

I have a thread about how Im freaking out about the tests b/c of the impossible Barrons practice ones! Im getting a raw score of 31-32 but I usually run out of time. There are many old threads on how Barrons is much harder, but I guess we'll see...

barron's is harder...i got 600s in barrons and i got 2 800s in the real subject tests book and sparknotes book

If I recall correctly, I got something like a... 28.5 and 31 on my two Barrons' I took and aced the SATII. It's a great study guy, but remember that Barrons' is notorious for making their tests harder than the actual thing. (Especially so for Math IIc.)

how are you guys getting a scaled score from the barron's tests? The only scale they provide is something of the sort, 41-50 "excellent" etc...

Also, the barron's cover matrices? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

They dont, but thats because theyre practically never on the test, but if you really want to learn about them, just get a pre-calc book

The barron's...oh jeez, I got like a 650 on the first test I took in the book and switched to sparknotes (where I got three 740s). 790 on the 22 real's, then 770 day of. So for me at least, barron's really was ridiculously much harder.

I just practice the barrons diag and got 35...the test is in a week, i need more practice!

got a 38 on the barrons practice test... but an 800 on the real sat II test... HOpefully the real test will be more like the Real than the Barrons.

730 on Barron's, 800, then 760 on Princeton, 800, then 780 on Kaplan, and 800 on Reals.

Zas...you made me jump up and scream. I just got a 38 on a barrons practice, and from what I've gathered the real thing is like the "real" tests. May we both be blessed with 800s, although for me, anything in the 700s would rock hard.
