Once you have completed the assessment, they provide links to site that will assist you in the areas you need to practice. To obtain a free SAT study guide or practice test you can either stop by the Academic VP’s office or you can download them here. If you plan to take the ACT, you can find the ACT test prep site here.
If you are taking either exam, this free site registration. You may receive email from them or their partnered organizations, but the reviews of their test prep are very positive and they have a good process for practice questions and brushing up in your weaker areas.

The strength of this site is that it allows students offer suggestions to the site once they have completed their exams, which is extremely helpful to help out other students. We encourage your participation.
