- I took the PSAT back in October and got a 1280, and I have taken some of Khan Academy's practice tests, but my reading score actually really hasn't changed. The practices are pinpointing my weaknesses, but they aren't really helping me fix them. How can I improve my reading score more effectively?(10 votes)
- Like any great warrior, you need to identify the weaknesses and then strike them. I don't know your weaknesses, but if-for example-you seem to be having issues with grammar, perhaps you should read a couple of articles on perfecting your English grammar. You could also look for or google different tricks and tactics to get the right answer quickly and work more efficiently.(6 votes)
- How can you get less nervous/stressed for the test? I tend to get nervous for various things, and when I took a digital piloting test for the SAT I was very panicky and nervous even though it was not real. I tend to have a headache or stomachache, which bothers me very much.(5 votes)
- Your nervous/stressed not because of the actual test, but because you are attached to the results. Results are important, but whenever you do something just leave the results and DO YOUR BEST. Try it once.
Your performance will not decrease it will increase. By giving your 100% in the present moment, you are putting in the best of your mental and intellectual abilities. When you do this, don't worry the results are naturally secured.
And learn from your mistakes and try and improve even if you do bad.(12 votes)
- how much hours should i study per day to get a 1000 on the sat(1 vote)
- My first advice would be to take a practice test to get a baseline score for yourself, if you haven’t already.
Then you might want to follow Prepscholar’s estimate of how long you should study to get a certain score increase:
150+ hours(12 votes)

- If you can, you should probably study for longer. If not, I think Khan Academy has some 1 month study plans to get you started.(4 votes)
- What are the tricks to improve my reading section.and graphics questions in math portion(2 votes)
- For the reading section, one thing I can suggest is to make sure that you read the passage effectively. Your goal is to as fast as you can, comprehend the parts of the passage that will help you answer the questions. To do this, you want to do a high-level skim of the passage until you see something that indicates that the sentence may be important to the passage as a whole or that a question may ask about it. As a general rule, these sentences will be at the beginnings and ends of paragraphs, as well as in the introduction and conclusion. Also look for "interesting" punctuation such as colons or dashes, and transition words such as therefore or conversely. When you get to a sentence like this, make sure you slow down and really digest the meaning. You can basically just skim over all the other parts of the passage. If you get to a bit of confusing wording that isn't in a key sentence, just skip over it.
For the math section, are you asking about questions that contain graphs of equations like quadratics and absolute value equations plotted on a graph, or graphs and charts like bar graphs or histograms?(6 votes)
