Q. When should I start preparing for the SAT/ACT?
A. This depends on the student, but to make sure you prepare appropriately, plan on ~5 months of sessions and taking the official test twice.

A. Absolutely! Once you start sessions, you will feel more confident with the test and the topics it covers.

Q. I am not sure if I should take the SAT or ACT?
