With the Spring SAT/ACT testing season behind us, students and parents can shift their focus to preparing for this coming fall’s exams.  The folks over at Method Test Prep have compiled a list of things for rising 12th graders to think about in order to get ready . . .

1.  Assuming that they took the SAT and/or the ACT sometime during their junior year of high school, students should watch the mail for their SAT Question & Answer and/or the ACT Test Information Release Service results . . . if they ordered them. This feedback is a student's best way of pinpointing what they need to study in order to improve their scores in the fall should they choose to re-take one or both of these exams.

*If you want to learn more about the importance of the SAT Question & Answer and/or the ACT Test Information Release Services, click here to see Method Test Prep’s article on this subject.

2.  Students should figure out if they scored higher on the SAT or the ACT (we recommend that students take each test once) by checking an SAT/ACT Score comparison chart (click here for the official College Board one).  Then they should focus on the test they scored higher on.

3.  Many students should use their summer break to at least do some test prep since the school year can be so busy.  An added bonus is that doing some prep also keeps students’ skills sharp over the summer months. Click here for a copy of Method Test Prep’s printable flyer about their summer classes.

4.  Students who are wondering whether a live, online class  is right for them (like those referenced in item number three above) can attend a Free SAT/ACT class on Monday June 24th, from 8 - 9 pm EDT to experience one for themselves.

* Remember . . .  military-connected students have FREE ACCESS to Method Test Prep’s online SAT/ACT prep through our™ College Planners section in the bottom-right corner of our home page.  Just follow the link to create an account or to log in if you already created one on a previous visit to our site.  This service is made possible by the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC)® . . . for the sake of the child.
