ACT

Many parents and students are unfamiliar with the ACT, which is understandable given it is the newer college entrance test (first published in 1959); however, as of 2012 and beyond, more students nationwide are taking the ACT!  Both the SAT and ACT are accepted at all institutions. What does this mean for you as you consider which test to take?

Is the ACT the right test for you?

Many parents and students are unfamiliar with the ACT, which is understandable given it is the newer college entrance test (first published in 1959); however, as of 2012 and beyond, more students nationwide are taking the ACT!  Both the SAT and ACT are accepted at all institutions. What does this mean for you as you consider which test to take? Here are some factors that may suggest ACT preference: 

Pace

Are you a fast reader?  Can you make quick connections to text and data?  The ACT is generally an easier test, but it demands you move quickly.

Math Content

Math not your strong suit?  Do you favor Geometry? Math is only 25% of your composite score, whereas it is 50% of your SAT composite score.

Reading Comprehension

ACT reading is fast, but is sheds the rigor and complexity of the SAT Reading section.  Fewer questions, fewer passages – what’s not to like?

Science

ACT Science is the flip side of the ACT Reading section.  It moves very quickly but is fundamentally a speed data-interpretation section.  Do you like Science? Can you interpret data quickly? The ACT may be for you.

This is not something I could get from a test prep book: personalized, instant feedback on the efficiency of my problem-solving technique. I 100% recommend tutoring with Clayborne Education.
