Preparing for the SAT and ACT

While many students take formal prep classes and private tutoring, motivated students can often accomplish as much with diligent self-study. The College Board (SAT) and the ACT have compiled sample exams in their study guides that are an excellent resource for any entrance exam preparation effort.  Khan Academy (the College Board’s partner for SAT prep) and  ACT Academy can be enormously helpful.

If you took the PSAT, your score report contains useful information about specific areas where you should focus extra attention as well as access to a customized SAT study plan through Khan Academy.
