The Difference Between the SAT and the SAT Subject Test

Julie wrote on Facebook: "what is the difference between a SAT and a SAT Subject test?"

The SAT measures reading, writing, and general math, and it's the college admission test.  If your state requires an annual assessment, this will probably take care of that.

The SAT Subject Tests measures just one subject, like economics or American history, or biology.  Some colleges require these tests, so look at your college requirements.

For more information: That class will teach you about the ACT, PSAT, PLAN, SAT Subject Tests, AP, and CLEP.

Now is the best time to register your children for the Spring SAT, SAT Subject Tests, or ACT.  I suggest children take the test between March and June of Junior year.
