I have listened to your lessons on the different high school tests, but I still cannot decide which one to choose for my daughter. She is using the Kaplan SAT prep software this year, and while she had no trouble with reading and writing, she can't remember how to do the simplest math equations. She has always struggled with both math and science, so I can't just have her take ACT. Any suggestions?
We will likely have to take a 5 hour drive to take the SAT or the ACT. We live on an island
That can be frustrating, Kimberly. I know how you feel, though. We live on the Colorado prairie, so everything is a long drive for us too!

Unfortunately, in some parts of the country you only have the choice of one test. The SAT is not available in my town. The nearest offered SAT is over an hour away. Hotel? no; driving the distance that morning and expecting to get there on time without incidence? not going to risk it. So we're stuck with the ACT and I think my son would do better on the SAT. He'll just have to study harder for it.
How frustrating! Everything is a long drive for us too. We live on the Colorado prairie!

Yup! It's you! It's a great story with a great lesson for other homeschool moms. Thanks for giving me permission to share it! I know others will benefit!
Tee hee... I think Lee may be alluding to my dd. Madeleine was granted a full four year tuition/room/board scholarship plus $600 yearly book stipend as well as a month long summer abroad program (her only expenses during that are her meals). She is so excited and is even heading there this weekend for a Leadership Conference.
