Test Preparation Library Guide: ACT / SAT

What is the ACT / SAT?

The American College Test (ACT) and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) are nationally administered, standardized paper-and-pencil tests that help colleges evaluate candidates.

Colleges now accept your ACT or SAT scores interchangeably. This means that you have the opportunity to decide on which test you'll perform better. And in many cases, students prepare for and take both exams.
