How can some one increase their SAT score by 300?
im kinda smart. i have a 3.3 gpa i take hounors and some AP classes. on my SAT i got 410 on reading 400 on math and 410 on the essay. in school i do really well in Math ( i have an A in alg 2.) and i finished english with a B+. also i never took any practice tests nor any prep classes before this SAT. this was my first time taking them
In short: I think that since you’ve only taken the SAT once, experience / familiarity is the most important thing for you right now. Take one or two practice tests; it’s likely that this alone will raise your score. (Indeed, it’s common for people’s second SAT to be much better than their first — even if they didn’t do any studying in the meantime!) Experience with the test is important, and I think it’s the first stop in SAT-prep.
In the longer run: I’d get the College Board’s blue book (i.e. “The Official SAT Study Guide”), and work through the practice exams under test-like conditions. I’d also buy a general SAT prep book (such as the Princeton Review’s “Cracking the SAT,” Barron’s “SAT,” etc.) and read it cover-to-cover.
Let me also briefly mention that I recently helped write a book that might be of interest to you: It’s called the SAT Self-Study Bible, and is meant to help people who study for the SAT on their own (rather than with a private tutor or through a prep-class). The link is below:
I should also mention that  There’s now a free, abridged version of the guide available (you can find it by going through the link above), and  I think that the 35% off coupon that I gave in some of my posts a while ago is still active (i.e. you can still get 35% off of the full version with it).
I hope that helps! Good luck when you retake!
