Test Prep

College admissions tests are not like the tests students take in school. Therefore, many students need to prepare before the tests. The following links provide information about college admissions tests, as well as test prep strategies.

Test Information

SAT. The test includes two required areas (Critical Reading and math) with a maximum score of 1600. There is also an optional Writing section. 

ACT. The test includes four required areas (English, Math, Reading and Science) with a maximum score of 36. There is also an optional Writing section.

AP Tests. Advanced Placement (AP) Tests are administered by the College Board. Students can choose to take AP tests after taking AP courses in school. Some colleges give college credit for passing scores (3-5) on the AP Tests.

Fairtest.org. Many colleges have stopped relying on standardized tests to make college admissions decisions. Fairtest.org is an up-to-date list of all colleges that do not require tests for college admissions purposes.

TOEFL. Most widely used English language proficiency test for students whose native language is not English.
