College Admissions Tests

Should you take the ACT or SAT?
Which one is right for you?

Choice? You Have a Choice?

Choosing which test to take wasn't even an issue even 10 years ago. Until recently, the ACT was traditionally required by colleges in the Midwest, and the SAT was the test of choice in the Northeast and on the East and West coasts. But now increasing numbers of students are taking the ACT and the majority of schools in the United States now accept results from both tests.
