I need help with ACT /SAT test taking and the best school for aerospace engineering.

Hi, I am an upcoming junior this year so I am starting to look for colleges. I have a 3.95 GPA and 8 (possibly more) extracurriculars. By the end of my high school career, I should have at least 7 AP courses and A LOT of honors courses. I haven't taken my SAT/ ACT and I was wondering if there were any amazing tips for the test. I have extremely bad test-taking anxiety and anxiety in general so I would love to go into the test feeling confident and not so nervous. My other question is my ultimate dream school is MIT, but it is a little of a reach for me at this moment I would also LOVE to go to Georgia tech. My question is what a school is also a good option for aerospace engineering. Thanks for all the help!!!!!

I'm not sure if I can give you any tips for the SAT since even I have trouble studying for it sometimes. But I can give you a super helpful resource that I use when studying for the SAT. Check out this link for more info: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/11TqmCUPCQfK9kER-f4755uKlMO8cacMv

The best tip anyone can give you for the SAT/ACT is to start studying by getting the Official Study Guides and enrolling in Kahn Academy. You should take a practice test in both and decide which format works for you.

Other great AE Schools are CalTech, U Mich, Purdue, Stanford, Texas A&M, UI Urbana-Champaign, U Colorado Boulder, UT Austin, UCLA,

For standardized testing I would do as many practice tests as you can. Instead of purchasing the official prep material, like the "red book" for the ACT, I would look up past test pdfs on reddit. They are the the exact same format as the actual test booklets and those should give you a better feel for the tests than tests written by third parties or even the practice material.
