I didn't study at all for it until a bit on the last day, and I did just fine. I don't see what the big deal is about it, it really wasn't that hard, it was just boring and took way too long. Anyways, I may just end up going to a school in Canada. A very good education for a much cheaper price.

Like mweir, I also studied just a little bit on the last night. I did some practice test problems from the Princeton Review book and skimmed thru some vocab. It's impossible to study what's on the test because you have no idea what will be on it, so be very knowledgable on the rules and format andread all the test taking tips in the review books.

I took a class and improved my score about 250 points.

The classes are alright... but only if you have a good teacher. Otherwise I'd bet it's pretty pointless. I had a great teacher, really broke things down well.

Anyways, the most important thing is the practice tests... gets you familiarized with the test, and the more you take it the more you're just like "yadda yadda yadda this is a breeze." The classes help a lot if you pay attention cause you realize what general thing you're doing wrong, what you can do differently, etc. and it's all explained by a person rather than a book. Just remember that there's usually always a simple answer to every question.. reasoning test not an information test.

Also, I'd reccommend getting the newspaper everyday. Just read anything you can, but the newspaper is the best. Just every morning sit down and read some articles for about 20 minutes with breakfast. It'll increase your reading comprehension, vocabulary (if you look words up), and maybe most importantly it'll put ideas in your head and make you aware of what's going on in the world... this is extremely important for writing essays. You just have more things/issues to pick and choose from, rather than just fantasy baseball.

On test taking day make sure that the SAT isn't the first thing you read. Warm yourself up by reading the newspaper or something.

BTW, how were everyone's AP scores?


4 on History, 5 on English Lang, 4 on Latin Poetry.

Hopefully that should help me get in to where I want to go along with my SAT scores which were pretty good 2150.

I also got a 4 on the US History for AP. Your 2150 should get you in most places. Dont most schools not use AP scores as admissions criteria? I thought it was just for the college credit?

Eh, and they help quantify your class grade. If you get an A in the class and a 2 on the AP, or vice versa, it shows some different things.
