SAT and ACT Prep

Hi, I am a rising junior and am planning to taking both the SAT and ACT this upcoming year. How should I be studying for these tests and what are some good tips and tricks I could use in order to score well on these test. Also should I take the SAT or ACT first?

Hi! First off, congrats on entering your junior year (personally my favorite year of hs)!!

I took the SAT twice, and I did not pay for any boujee programs. All i did was get help from an SAT mentor from learners empowered for free. they all scored 1500+ and told me important tips and tricks, also about the best free resources. i personally found it very helpful to learn about the basics of the SAT and how to prepare.

let me know if you are interested in the SAT mentoring program because it really did help me and a lot of my friends reach our goal scores!

Other than that, I would recommend taking the SAT as early as you can (and still feel prepared) so that you have more time for retaking. I took it in August before my junior year and again in march of my junior year. If you see that the SAT is not for you, you can then choose to take the ACT. I was originally planning on taking both, but after reaching my goal score, i realized that i didn't need to take the ACT at all.

Best of luck!! (I hope I helped :))
