Standardized tests aren’t just inevitable; they’re important. Certain scores on the PSAT can secure scholarship money. SAT and/or ACT scores are one of the deciding factors of your admission status for most colleges, and some schools use the scores as cutoffs for waiving placement tests or even classes. The SAT Subject Tests and AP tests also can allow you to waive some classes or get college credit.

But don’t worry, we’ve brought together the most important information from the leading experts, and we offer great books and some exciting tools to help you get your best score.
