Studying for ACTs, SATs

How do you get a better score on college entrance exams? Does cramming work? Should you guess "C" if you don't know the answer? Many students will be thinking about that in the next two weeks when they take their ACTs and SATs. Matthew Pietrafetta, founder of Academic Approach tells us what is true and what is just a myth when it comes to test preparation.

Let's go through some of the common things we've all heard about taking the test:

  • grammar myth: if it sounds good it probably is right
  • math myth: calculators make it easier
  • essay myth: can write about any subject real or not
  • reading myth: no need to read the passage, just test the question
