Test Prep Survival: SAT, ACT, and PSAT/NMSQT

Standardized tests play an important role in the college admission process…and you can get through them! Read on and prepare for test success.

First stop: Acronym City
When it comes to standardized testing, there seems to be an acronym waiting around every corner — and the SAT, ACT, and PSAT/NMSQT play starring roles.

To start out, many students take a practice PSAT/NMSQT during sophomore year, which is optional. Wondering why you would elect to take a test? The more you know about your exams, the less apt you'll be to freak during the one that counts. As for the ""real"" test, you'll take that in October of junior year. (At an ""ACT school"" you'll take the PLAN during the fall of sophomore year.)

SAT vs. ACT
The choice of whether to take the SAT or ACT used to be determined by your school/region. Today, however, most schools accept both SAT and ACT scores, which means that you can decide for yourself.

Although the tests are similar, there are some key differences. On the SAT, the writing section is required and the essay factors into your overall score. On the ACT, you can choose whether or not to take the Writing section. Another difference is the way that the tests are scored. On the SAT, you'll get a small amount deducted for every wrong answer. On the ACT, only right answers count — so fill in every bubble. The SAT tests reading comprehension, math, and writing skills.
