There's no getting around it: The more time you put in preparing for college entrance tests the better you'll score. If you've already taken the SAT or ACT, you may still have time to take them again and squeak out a few more points. At the Test Prep Center, you'll find lots of tips to help you study and improve your scores.

SAT/ACT Practice

"Practice makes perfect!" You have heard that lots of times. Amazing, but it's true. The better you do on your SAT or ACT, the wider your choice of colleges may be. It's all true that SAT and ACT scores are not the only ticket to admission to college. Grades, challenging courses, extra-curricular activities and a great application essay all contribute to helping you stand out. But, if you are going to do well on these tests, you need to practice, practice, practice! Both the College Board (SAT) and ACT offer great sample questions on their websites as well as helpful hints and practice software.
