    Need to improve the SAT verbal score by 50 points. Can folks share programs, approaches, strategies that have worked for them. There is so much promotional material out there it is overwhelming. Thanks.

    how do you know

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but how do you know if you need to raise your SAT by 50 points?

    Try March2Success.com -- its free!

    I would also suggest you buy the SAT Blue Book and focus on the Verbal section. You can go through the Verbal section and then take practice tests to help you gauge your progress.

    Of course, you can also pay for a tutor. There may be some recommendationson tutors from older kids that just graduated from your high school -- just ask the smart kids who are going to really good colleges if they used or recommend a tutor. Some tutoring services offer practice SAT tests where you may be able to get feedback for free the first time you take a practice SAT test.

    Take the SAT as many times as possible until you achieve the score you are seeking.

    Good luck!

    David - try going to College Confidential and searching for the "Xiggi Method".
    No personal experience, but many, many anecdotal reports from people who say it helped them improve their scores.

    Someone (RC, FF, coach, etc.) probably suggested that raising his or her score 50 points would help. It's probably not a definite 50, but more of a guideline.

    That's my guess, if I'm wrong feel free to correct me.
