SAT and ACT Prep: Practice Test Schedule

For both SAT prep and ACT prep, one of the most crucial elements to running a successful program is offering full-length, proctored practice tests regularly. Taking diagnostic exams on a consistent basis is one of the best ways students can prepare for standardized exams.

A-List holds regular ACT and SAT practice tests at sites in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, and Los Angeles. Register below for an exam at one of our testing locations. 

Why are Practice Tests Important for ACT prep and SAT prep?

Practice tests should be a part of your ACT and SAT prep schedule for several reasons:

  1. Helps reduce test day nerves: Going into any test not knowing what to expect can cause you to feel nervous and hinder your focus and mental processes. Taking a full-length practice test as a part of your ACT prep or SAT prep program can help you mentally prepare for test day.
  2. Familiarizes you with timing and test lengths: One of the most difficult parts of standardized tests can be learning how to pace yourself. By taking the ACT and SAT practice tests, you can get a feel for the timing and create a plan.
  3. Helps discover strengths and weaknesses: Taking practice tests helps you become aware of what areas you have mastered and which ones still need attention. If you find that you’re struggling with a particular portion of the test, you can better tailor your ACT prep or SAT prep program to accommodate your needs.
