ACT Test Preparation:

The ACT is a college entrance exam administered by ACT Inc. Colleges and universities across the United States use ACT scores to help them make decisions about the standardized academic performance of each college applicant. Another common college admissions test is the SAT. Please see our SAT test prep page for more information on the SAT. While standardized test scores are not the only aspect of a college application, they are often used to determine which applications will be given closer review.
