Is test prep for the ACT/SAT necessary?
Just like subject exams taken at school, it is very important to prepare for the ACT/SAT test. The scores on the exams could be critical to the admission process for some colleges and majors.
Do I need to take practice exams ?
Taking full-length practice tests under timed conditions is essential to being ready when your official test date comes. You can set up timed tests on your own or go through a test prep company. The PSAT is offered to 10th and 11th grade students on our campus. We also offer mock exams through Revolution Prep on our campus.

Provide the best way to choose between the SAT and ACT. Even if you have taken the PSAT and ACT Aspire, you’ll want to take full-length SAT and ACT practice tests before selecting your testing path.
Should I test prep for both the ACT & SAT ?
It is recommended that you pick the ACT or SAT to dedicate time to test prep. After reviewing the types of questions on the testing website and/or doing practice or mock exams, note which test timing and questions you preferred and then choose which test to study. At this time most colleges accept either the SAT or ACT, however, if you have colleges you are interested in applying to you can check their admission website to confirm both tests is accepted.
Due to COVID, we do not currently have any Mock Exams scheduled.
