*Many advise that students should take both ACT and SAT and see which test fits them better. Students tend to score better on one or the other. Students should plan on taking these tests more than once (with additional study time). Many students begin by taking both tests in summer before or fall of junior year as a baseline so that they have time to see what topics that they might benefit from some additional study
