This site might help. The difficulty level increases as you answer more questions correctly. Plus, every time you give a correct answer they make a donation of rice to charity - paid for by the advertisers.

I always try to visualize or interpret meaning from their sound (works most of times).
e.g. plausible = possible = something not bad = valid

that's a terrible method. modern languages don't work like that. better to take a word apart to figure out it's meaning.

what is your first language? french? creole? urdu?

I took the SAT a while back, and my only advice would be:

1. Build up your vocabulary. I didn't do so great on my Reading Comprehension/Critical Reading because I didn't know many words. Also, make sure you know English grammar very well.

2. Practice going through the questions quickly. In both the Reading Comprehension/Critical Reading parts I was barely finishing, and sometimes I didn't have time to finish all of the questions. However, if you know your stuff well, it won't be too bad. (I finished all my math sections with at least 5-10 minutes still left.)
