2190 SAT and 33 ACT: Which should I take now?

I've taken the SAT twice, and my superscore is a 2190. The issue I have is that my critical reading score is not up to the same level as my other scores (660 vs. 750 on Math and 780 on Writing).

2230 SAT superscore - should I take the test a third time?

How is vocabulary tested on the new SAT?

I know the College Board is getting rid of sentence completion questions on the SAT, but I'm not sure exactly what that means for me. I don't have a great vocabulary, so I guess it's good news, but how will they test vocab now? Do I have to actually study definitions or is that a waste of time?

Do I have a chance at top colleges with a 580 CR SAT score?

My Math and Writing scores are in the 700s, but I'm stuck at a 580 on Critical Reading. I've already taken the test three times, so I'm not going to take it again.
