@akilbello test prep analogy: ACT is to SAT as burger king is to mcdonalds #campuschat

@akilbello: ACT is to SAT as Snapple is to Coca-Cola #campuschat

@EECollegePlan “ACT on the ACT, SIT on the SAT” What I always tell my clients! Answer everything on the ACT, only educated guesses on the SAT. #campuschat

@IvyEyesEditing:Re vocab memorization, really important to read & learn vocab in context. Iconoclastic isn’t exactly teen-speak. Ha! #campuschat

@SheldonWordNerd: @PreppedPolished You’ll be amazed the vocab you’ll learn from a cereal box! hahahaha #campuschat

@PreppedPolished @IvyEyesEditing For international students, I’d recommend the ACT over the SAT-for it is a more straightforward test. #campuschat

@PreppedPolished: I’m big on practice tests. Take a practice test a week leading up to the test, and try to better your score each time. #campuschat
