As for me, well, the SAT was really easy, but I'm just one of those crazy test-taking people, and I got around a 2300 on the 2400 scale. I would take some practice ones to find out how you're going to do first, I think there are some available online. If you do good in practice, you'll be a lot more confident going in, and if you don't, then you can figure out where you need to focus your effort.

My suggestion is to buy or borrow one of those review books and go through that. Then go out and get involved with Habitat for Humanity or some sort of non-profit, service-based organization like that. Or start your own organization. College admission offices love entrepreneurial types. See a need, fill a need. Plus you can write all about it in your essay.

Math - 680 out of 800
Reading - 540 out of 800
writing - 470 out of 800
I'm a senior now and I'm thinking about retaking the SAT again.
I think that the SATs are important, but college admission shouldn't be based purely on it; because, as said above, some kids can get the grades without really learning anything (hm, reminds me of me a little). Also, somebody said above that some colleges only accept ACTs and therefor ACTs are more important; however, there are also colleges who only accept SATs so it is important to look at the colleges you plan on applying to in order to see which test to take. I think the SAT is easier because the questions are from easiest to hardest so you know to look for trick questions the farther into the test you go; however, the ACT the questions are random, but some people do better with that too, so it's up to your skills to see which one to take.

Some scholarships, however, require SAT or ACT scores. That being the case, I would recommend doing the best you can on whichever test you choose to take. Studying beforehand and trying your best can only help you. But don't, you know, give up on college if you DON'T do well.

i didn't even bother with the sat...
i took the act and got a 33 which was more than enough to get me into college and more or less get me a full ride scholarship,
most colleges look at your act/sat scores and gpa/strength of schedule about equally... my experience has been that extracurriculars (church, sports, work, etc) have been a bigger issue for private scholarships.
