The ACT®, one of the leading US college admissions test, is coming to Middle Creek on Feb. 28th, for ALL 11th graders and FREE of Charge. A question I get a lot is: “which test should I take, the SAT or the ACT”? My answer to that, being the cheapskate that I am is:  you’re getting the ACT for free and during school hours, so make the most of it and do your best. Here’s a great resource to help you prepare:

But what if you need to retake the test? Should it be the ACT or the SAT? That depends on the type of test taker you are and the types of knowledge that interest you most. To better understand each test I found the following article to help explain the differences between the ACT and SAT:
