Hi, im taking SAT in october
i've taken about 7 or 8 of the 10 reals as long as with some Princeton Review tests..
whether @ home or @ priceton review i usually take 1 or 2 tests a week and never on consecutive days.
THE PROBLEM is that my scores fluctuate like crazy.
My last 8 test scores have been like
1410, 1480, 1540, 1300, 1510, 1310, 1490, 1350
Usually my verbal is 600-640 on bad days and 680-730 on good days
MAth is 680-730 on bad days.. 770-800 on good days.
anyone else have this problem or am i insane.

i have the same thing on my math IIC
Try to keep the exact same setting, time of day, etc. as you would on test day
then if u mess up, u better work!
i like to take a jog around the block before i take my test (dont be too tired)
it gets your body and mind goin

i think you're insane!!
lol, just kidding, but I can't understand how one can go from a 1540 to a 1300!!! Just hope it's one of your good days.

Figure out your problem areas and work on those.

The 1540-1300 variation is a lot. Factors could include:
1) Blood sugar level / Food (a heavy meal - or no meal at all)
2) Medications (e.g., allergy medicine)
3) Sleep (or lack of it)
5)The test itself (luck of the draw vocab words)
6) Environmental distractions - exterior and interior
1,2 and 3 you have some control over - you might think back if any of those came into play. With #6 you also have control of how you handle things. Were you a bit cocky taking the test after you obtained a 1540? Did it take a while to get your confidence back after the 1300?
From your scores, you are very capable of obtaining high 1400's, and mid 1500's with a bit of vocabulary luck, I suspect. Confidence is important - so is getting enough sleep. Good luck!

Do you actually finish the test? I never ever finished a section. I hate timed stuff.
