The SAT vs. the ACT
(according to The Princeton Review)
1. ACT questions tend to be more straightforward.
2. The SAT has a stronger emphasis on vocabulary.
3. The ACT has a Science section, while the SAT does not.
4. The ACT tests more advanced math concepts.
5. Both tests include a Writing Test that is technically "optional."
However, some universities require it for admission, so you'll want
to research the expectations of the schools you're interested in.
