The Scholastic Assessment Test known as the SAT (www.collegeboard.org) is designed to measure critical reading, math, and writing abilities. The American College Testing or ACT (www.actstudent.org) is a national admissions exam consisting of subject tests in the following areas: math, science, English, reading, and writing. Colleges will accept either the SAT or the ACT. Although it does not matter which test you take, these tests have different components and depend on different academic ‘strengths’. To determine which test is best for you, consider taking a practice test for both tests and see which one best highlights your strengths.
