Preparing for College

SAT's for Soph?

Question: I read that you recommend us sophomores taking the SAT test once during May to improve our weaknesses. I was going to do what you said by registering for the upcoming SAT test on May, but I was wondering about the results. When I get my scores, will colleges see that I took the test since it will be recorded into my SAT record? What happens if I don't send the scores to them? Should I send it to them?

I am still deciding on whether to just take the SAT practice test from one of those study guides or to take it at my high school by registering online. If I take it at my school, will colleges see it and be like, "Oh, this student took it during sophomore year, she must be really dedicated into doing good on the test!"? Please help me!
