About the ACT and SAT
While the SAT is the original college entrance exam, the ACT recently passed the SAT as the most popular prompting the SAT to revise it's test for the class of 2017. The last "old SAT" was administered in January 2016, and the "new SAT" will be available starting March 2016. The Test Experts recommends taking both the ACT and SAT at least once and then focusing on the one you did better on.
