Here is a clear comparison chart for the ACTs, the SATS and the new SATs. This is helpful when a student is faced with deciding which score(s) to send along with the college application process.
Some students will find the SATs easier and some will find the ACTs more manageable. If you have the opportunity to take both, study for both! Studying for the SATs does not mean you have studied for the ACTs. It is especially important to review the directions for each section of each test so that you do not have to spend time figuring it all out the morning of the test. WilsonDailyPrep offers excellent guidance for both exams.
