Would you score better on the SAT or the ACT?
While many students try their hand at both the SAT and the ACT, most still only take one of the two tests.
But how do you decide which to take? Try Kaplan’s SAT/ACT Combo Sample Test
Kaplan’s 90-minute sample test provides 10 practice questions from each section of both tests. This gives students a taste of what to expect on test day whether they decide to take the SAT, ACT, or both. The sample test is followed by answers & explanations. Scores are given to provide a general indication of potential performance on each test.
