There are tools and resources to help prepare for College Admissions tests.  Many are free or affordable. Khan Academy offers online practice for both tests. A student should take several practice tests to get a sense of how the test is set up, as well as the timing of the different sections.  Students should review the results of every test in addition to learning their score, which will help indicate what skills to work on. Link your college board account to the Khan Academy in order to start practicing!
