Since I am so stressed out about the SAT, I just want to know how much some of you guys have improved. Hopefully this will de-stress me a little. I've taken it 2 times and I've improved by 80 pts. Has anybody improved by over 250 pts, 300 pts, maybe even 350 pts????

Congrats on improving your score already! Eighty is quite a lot. Mine dropped 30 the second time, and I didn't take it again. I wasn't looking at very selective colleges.
I think its very rare for a score to go up that much, especially since you've already improved by 80. Unless of course, you did a lot on your part to improve the score. Even with taking a class, more practice tests, or vocab, it would be rare to have such a huge score increase as you're hoping for. Sorry. =(
Don't stress too much. Have you tried the ACT? You can also show your efforts in a certain subject with SAT IIs, which are also required by some colleges anyways.

Took me two years of studying off and on. Taking lots of practice tests during the summers and memorizing vocabulary.

PSAT 1350 (71M, 64V)
SAT 1520 (800M, 720V)
I took it cold, no classes or anything...
But then that's PSAT -> SAT...

130 pt increase in 1 year!
I don't like memmorizing vocab, but I did take all 10RS and the two other tests that were released by the collegeboard and the free kaplan test and the 5 sparknotes tests. Hard work definitely pays off

Some of you are mentioning score increases from your first time (taking it cold), to more recent. I assumed Stelikepalli has already done some review, and me said he had taken it twice. My score also went up a lot. My first practice test was a 1060, lol. Finally I got 230 points higher. Not much by the standards of CC, but I was happy. That was over the course of two years.

I started at an awful 970 (sophmore year) and have improved to a 1270.
300 points up.
Hope to break 1300 in the fall
