ACT or SAT?

I recommend taking both the SAT and ACT no later than the end of 11th grade. By taking both, you are able to determine which test is a better fit for you! Then, you can focus preparing and studying for that specific test. There are tons of free online test resources!

Free Test Preparation Resources!

This is a free resource for students taking SAT, ACT, and AP exams!
