I took Kaplan's SAT prep course in the summer and I received a final SAT score of 2230. I thought the classroom course was really brilliant and there is no way I'd have gotten anything close to that score without Kaplan's help. Definitely huge positive feedback from me!

Which should you take?

How do you know whether to take the SAT or ACT? It really is a personal preference and it also depends on what your preferred university accepts in terms of college entrance exams.

While the SAT plays to some students' strengths, it isn't the best choice for others. Same goes for the ACT. While both exams have a similar structure, the tests are challenging in different ways. For example, the SAT emphasises reading and vocabulary while the ACT includes a science section. Whatever your preference, it's important to choose the right exam for you! Or, if you're unsure, there is no harm in taking both!
