I took the SAT and got a 1040 horrible i know, but then i got the 10 real sat book and improved to 1200's and then 1300's. I can now get 1300+ preety steadily, but are those book enough to help prepare you for the SATS, or are there other things i can do.

It helped me. Thank goodness I got that book. I didn't prepare for the SATs in my junior year and got an 1100. I bought Ten Real SATs and scored consistently between 1200-1340. I took the SAT twice in my senior year and scored 1220 and 1270.

You can use word lists, math workbooks or even pay for a prep course, but Ten Real SATs gets the job done when it comes to improving test scores.

Many posters on CC also suggest reading good literature. I did not have the time to do that during school and summer.

reading shouldn't be a chore and it don't have to be "good literature." Just read anything that interests you and will keep you reading. You can improve your reading speed and comprehension. It should be like watching TV

Aside from 10 Reals I would also get Cracking the SAT - the tips can help you on any weak areas. It also has 7 more practice tests.

Im getting constant high 1200 and low 1300s with im not done with 10 real sats i have about 6 test left, and ill probably check out cracking the SAT, but with the few precious month left how high do you think i can get my SAT score to be, im preety determined..

i went from 1220 last october to 1320 in march, and my friend went from 1430 in october to a 1550 in march using 10 reals so it works no doubt. if youre getting low 1300's you could be looking at upper 1300's to mid 1400's. it all depends on what comes through on test day.

should i be doing extra stuff besides just doing every test such as making flash cards etc.?
