But while classes may start slowly, the SAT and ACT are already upon us. Fall prep for juniors and seniors alike starts now. Will you be test ready? Summer may bring a welcome break from school, but local students certainly kept the dreaded brain drain at bay by working diligently towards the August SAT and September ACT.

We at Chariot Learning administer a lot of practice tests. Make that a LOT of practice tests, most of them free. That only makes sense, as taking official practice SAT & ACT exams under simulated test conditions is a cornerstone of effective test preparation. Committing so many mornings to proctoring feels worth the effort when we see so many motivated students showing up time after time. With a self-selected population of test takers at hand, I can’t help but conduct surveys at different testing sites. During our Winter 2018 season, we asked “What motivates you to do better on the SAT or ACT?” For the rest of 2018, we focused on a different question: “How many practice tests do you plan to take before the official exam?” From March through November at libraries and other testing sites across Rochester and Syracuse, we elicited responses from 303 SAT & ACT test…
