I now have an A in Math. Basically I had a really bad teacher at the beginning of my junior year and then I changed math classes so now I have a 6 (A).

I'm going to try to get a good grade on the exam and maybe bump my grade up to a 6.

On the other hand, I'm one of those kids who freaks out when it comes to standardized testing so my SAT scores haven't been very high but I'm going to study and practice a lot over the summer.

Thanks so much for the help.

Do you have anymore suggestions?

Sit yourself in a room with SAT past papers (is that what you call them?) and just practice with a timer. Try an imagine yourself in an exam room and try to make it as similar to exam conditions as you can. It's what helped me chill out about my exams. If not, if you can get hold of Propranolol it could help curb your nerves. It's probably only through Doctor's prescription though.

Est-ce que tu parle Francais couramment?

St, I disagree. I did that, and on all my prac tests, I got around 2000. On the actual SAT, I got 2200, so I guess it works for some people but not for others. I recommend buying the online course, it's awesome :)
