I am not a native speaker and I moved here in 8th grade....I am a junior in High School now..~
Im planning on focusing on the SATs over the summer, so I can take it in October of my senior year...(yes...I never took the real SATs before....
I took a lot of SAT classes and I have a massive collection of SAT prep books...but I found it hard for me to improve on my critical reading section....math and writing are relatively easy to improve on....the practice tests I did were mostly scored around 1900-2000...I usually get 700+ on math and 650+ on writing...but the 500+ on CR just KILLED me!!!!
I tried to memorize a lot of vocabs, but that doesnt help on the passages that much. I have trouble comprehending the theme of the essay, or when I do actually understand what they are talking about, I would screw over the questions...
I just dont get it...:(
How should I improve on this section? More vocabs? More practices? or more books?
P.S. I heard that the SAT II US History is harder than the AP exam...is that true? I am taking it in June.
