I wanted to address this topic in light of reports that a growing number of college applicants are opting to take both the SAT and ACT. Historically, we’ve recommended taking practice tests of each to gauge where your percentile ranks and then choose the test that appears to be the “path of least resistance.”
In light of the new SAT, we’re a bit more biased towards the ACT. Why be a potential “guinea pig” for the SAT, particularly when that test is essentially morphing into the ACT? Of course, your situation may be a bit more complex so, as always, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1.800.809.0800 to discuss your candidacy in more detail, determine which test may be best for you and select an optimal test preparation strategy.
