Tips for Preparing for the ACT or SAT Tests
Almost all colleges require the ACT or SAT for admissions, and scoring well on these tests can not only open doors to colleges, it can affect your college course placement and scholarships. Most merit based scholarships are based on a combination of your GPA and test scores. With some much depending on the your scores on the college prep exams, it is important to maximize your scores. Here are some tips:
1. Plan in advance. The tests are generally offered about 7 times throughout the year. It isn’t unusual for those applying to highly competitive schools to take the test 4 or more times. A general rule of thumb is to plan on taking the test at least 2 or 3 times. That means that you will want to begin preparing after your sophomore year in high school or early in your junior year. It is ideal to obtain your target test score before beginning your senior year of high school so that you are not overloaded with college applications and testing during the fall of your senior year.
2. Set aside time every week to practice. Even if you feel comfortable with a section of the test, continue practicing so that it stays fresh and your score is solidified or improves.
3. Join a group test prep course or hire a private tutor. These sessions have proven to dramatically improve test scores of students across the country.
