SAT vs. ACT - Let's Review

Ok....  Here goes....

The SAT covers reading, writing & math and has a mandatory essay.  There is a penalty for guessing.

The ACT covers reading, writing, math & SCIENCE, and the essay is optional.  No penalty for guessing.

So, how do you know which one to take?

About 1/3 of kids will do better on SAT, 1/3 will do better on ACT, and 1/3 will do about the same on both.  The only way to know which one your child will do best in is to take a sample test.  You can find books at the library, and take a sample test there or find sample tests  online.  Give them a sample, and see which one they do better at.   That's the one you study.

Pretty simple, huh?

Yes, every college is VERY different, and the SAT/ACT is only one of the MANY ways they can be unique. It always help to choose with the colleges your interested in. Most don't have a preference, but it's always good to check.

Wonderful advice! So simple...just take a sample test and see which is best. However, may I also add that some colleges require one test or the other, so it's important to look into that, too. Some will accept either, but some want a specific test.
