The SAT and ACT are standardized assessments that most colleges use (at least in part) to determine the potential success of a student at the college level. These links provide more information about these tests as well as study tips, test taking strategies and sample questions.
However, NONE of these sites should take the place of a thoughtful discussion with your guidance counselor about these issues. Each student has different needs and only an individual meeting can make sure that your needs are met.
