Which Standardized Test is for You?

Many students and parents begin the college prep process by comparing the ACT and SAT.  Two of the most common questions they ask are:
  • Is the ACT easier than the SAT?
  • Do colleges prefer scores from the SAT or ACT?
Generally speaking, both test cover the same types of content.  Both ACT and SAT scores are used for college admissions and merit-based scholarships.  The biggest differences between the tests are that the ACT has a Science Test, and there‚Äôs one SAT Math Section for which you cannot use a calculator.  Colleges don't prefer one over the other, so explore both tests to decide which one is right for you.
