ACT
The ACT is the leading US college admisstions test, measuring whatyou learn in high school to determine your academic readiness for college.
 
SAT
SAT Subject Tests are required by some colleges (ie. UT Austin, Rice). These subject tests are given on specific SAT test dates. Check with the college you polan to attend to verify whether this is a requirement.
 
SAT Reasoning exams are acceptable to most colleges and may be taken more than once. Students will register on-line with a credit card at www.collegeboard.com for the SAT Reasoning test.
 
One of our biggest goals in changing the SAT was to make sure it's highly relevant to your future success. The new test is more focused on the skills and knowledge at the heart of education. It measures:
  • What you learn in high school
  • What you need to succeed in college. If you think the key to a high score is memorizing words and facts you'll never use in the real world, think again. You don't have to discover secret tricks or cram the night before. The same habits and choices that lead to success in school will help you get ready for the SAT. The best way to prepare for the test is to:
    • Take challenging courses
    • Do your homework
    • Prepare for tests and quizzes
    • Ask and answer lots of questions
    • In short, take charge of your education and learn as much as you can.
