Is 176 an ok score for the PSAT if I did not study at all?

A PSAT score of 176 places you in about the top 25% of PSAT test takers. According to the website of the College Board, for 2009 the average score of PSAT test takers was 141. A PSAT score can be multiplied by ten to get the rough equivalent of what a student is likely to make on the SAT unless he engages in serious SAT preparation efforts. If an SAT score of 1760 is likely to be sufficient to allow you to gain admission to the colleges that you want to attend, then 176 is an "ok" score on the PSAT. If you would like to make a higher SAT score than 1760, then you should go to the website of the College Board an register for their online course about how to improve your SAT score. You should be aware that a few random hours of study is unlikely to impact your SAT score. You may need to spend five hours or so per week for many months taking practice SATs and studying SAT preparation materials in order to improve your SAT score. But it can be done! Good luck!
