it'll all be worth it when you get a high score. By the way with the shortness of your last post I wouldn't call it a rant. maybe a ra since it was really short. :-D

Never took them. Went the JC route, maintained a 3.5 GPA and got into a decent University.

Could have probably gone to better schools, but I wanted to go to ASU. USC is my dream school, but not worth the money for me. Too close to home too.

ooo man...SAT work. Tough times. :-°

But in the end, the work really does help you and you hopefully do well. ;-D I had to go to an English tutor and my English grade rose 50 pts from where I started from (practice test).

The best part in my case was, if I got a 1250 or better, my parents wouldn't make me retake it (just counting Math/English). I got exactly 1250 (620 on writing and 11/12 on hte essay, but it averages to pretty much a 1250 anyway).

Again though, the work is very draining, but worth it in the end.

we just got the PSAT's back...basically you go in blind (well at least I do, some take PSAT classes :-t ) to see what your strengths are etc.

I got

Math: 720
Reading: 610
Writing: 630

That is 1330 out of 1600 or 1960 out of 2400...

I may take a class in the spring, if not I will do other work to improve my grade. Honestly, I should have gotten every math problem correct. IMO, the math section was a joke. Idealistically, I could get 800 math and at best 720 english 720 writing...but we do not live in an idealistic world so of course that will not happen :-t

I didnt think the PSAT's were very long, tiring or stressful...they were just another test.

If you think the SAT's are hard then just take the ACT. It took me 3 tries to break 2100 for the SAT, but only one try to break 30 for the ACT. ACT's are extremely easy compared to the SAT. }:-)

Mine will be back then soon, I guess. I found it pretty easy, from what I remember.

Not necessarily hard, more like annoying.
