Planning for College

Test Preparation

The SAT, ACT, and TOEFL tests are used to help college admissions officers make fair admissions decisions. The ACT is an achievement test that measures what you've learned in school, while the SAT is an aptitude test of your reasoning and verbal abilities. Most U.S. colleges and universities require that enrolling students have taken the SAT or ACT. International students are usually required to take the TOEFL exam.
