Both the SAT and ACT test companies emphasize that the best way to improve scores is to take a challenging academic curriculum which includes higher math (at least through Algebra II) and advanced classes in as many areas as possible. Test preparation classes or resources usually serve to increase awareness of test procedures and questions. They also give hints on how to be more efficient in timed situations and how to reduce anxiety as a result of being more familiar with the test.

Kaplan is a national test preparation company that periodically gives students an opportunity to take a "real" ACT, SAT, or PSAT that is not scored. These sample tests are free, but remember they will encourage you to sign up for an expensive test prep course. Call 1-800-KAPTEST for schedules and reservations. Test are given at UWF.

Many companies sell items for test prep. The best materials are usually those produced by the test makers themselves (See links above for on-line purchase). Local bookstores carry resources.
