I've seen a number of posts from parents discussing the difference between the SAT and ACT exam. As the president of Ashley Tutors, I am constantly looking for new information to provide for parents. Here's our latest article on the differences in the two tests.

SAT vs. ACT: Which One is Right for Your Student?

There is a lot of information, classes and books available on how to master your test taking abilities for the SATs and ACT tests. While it is important to practice the skills that are necessary to do well on these tests, it is also very important to know the differences between them. Being informed on each test’s highlights, challenges and implications will help you and your child decide which one is best for him or her.

Generally speaking, the SAT and ACT tests attempt to gauge a student’s readiness for college. However, each test has a slightly different focus when it comes to material.
