I got a 1650 on my SAT, and I was expecting to get at least an 1800. I did a fair amount of prep work before the test on my own and with Princeton Review books. Where am I going wrong? How can I make sure I reach my goal next time?

I recently took the SAT without any prep, and I got an 1100. My target score is a 1400, but I don't have much time to devote to studying right now. Could one month of intensive studying leading up to my second attempt be enough to raise my score by 300 points?

I know that the two tests are pretty different, but will studying for the SAT make you more prepared for the English, Reading and Math sections of the ACT? I've already taken the SAT, but I want to try out the ACT too, and I'm not sure what my game plan should be or if I even need to study more.

I hear there's no longer a guessing penalty on the new SAT. If this is the case, should I always guess on all the questions I can't figure out? Is there any situation where I should avoid guessing?
