### Transcript

• 1. SAT / ACT Which Test Should I Take?
• 2. Why Students Struggle with low SAT & ACT scores? ➢11th & 12th graders taking a test on 9th & 10th grade material. ➢Start early in 10th grade Test 1 + 11th grade for Test 2 & possibly Test 3 ➢High GPA ≠ High SAT scores. Most High Schools are NOT College Prep, but Diploma Prep ➢Take a Prep class, to help you understand the tricks & develop strategies for the SAT/ACT
• 3. SAT / ACT Math Differences ➢ SAT Math : Basic Arithmetic to Algebra 2 ➢SAT Math questions are presented in word problem form. The student’s critically thinking ability to problem solve is the goal of the test. ➢The SAT questions are shorter 20 – 25 min sections when compared to longer 60 -­‐75 min sections on the ACT. ➢ ACT Math : Basic Arithmetic to Trigonometry ➢The ACT feels like an advanced High school graduation test in Math, English & Science. ➢The ACT is a fast paced test, with 60 questions in 60 mins on the Math section. ➢The ACT has a Science section; simply English comprehension with scientific facts. ➢ On the ACT: Answer every question, ➢ On the SAT: Be more selective. You loose points for wrong multiple choice answer on the SAT.
• 4. What Test Should My Student Take? ➢ The ACT is a fast pace test (e.g 60 Math questions in 60 mins). If your student is a slow reader (75% of ACT requires heavy reading) and is intimidated by scientific facts and experiments; take the SAT Test ➢ Can your student process math that is not like their homework and excels at problem solving? if yes, take the SAT Test ➢ Does your student have problems with "shifting" (going from one thing to the next seamlessly)? If yes, take the ACT Test since there are less shifts from one section to another. ➢ Does your student hate reading & analyzing long passages to pick out the right answer? if yes, take the SAT Test since it consists of less reading compared to ACT test. 75 % of the ACT test involves heavy reading of long passages.
• 5. 3 Things that Increase your Student’s Scores. ➢ Start early, you only have 10th & 11th grade; consider 11th grade your last year of High School ➢ The Material on the ACT & SAT is 9th & 10th grade content, so you want your student taking the test when they still remember the material. ➢ Take a Prep course ➢ Students who take a good prep course know exactly what to do & NOT to do on each Test i.e. SAT: don’t answer every question, focus on the ones you know | ACT: answer all questions. ➢ A Prep course also makes sure your student actually sits down each week and studies just for the test. ➢ Online prep is ineffective and students can’t interact with instructor. ➢ Plan to take the test 2 to 3 times ➢ As the student gets more familiar with the pace and conditioning from prior testing & prep courses, they score better because they can better deal with the 4 hour stress.
