Failing the SAT or ACT tests to get into college is a fear of many college-bound students. In order to prepare for these tests, one option is to take test prep classes. These classes address not just practice testing, but also testing strategies, memory enhancement and anti-anxiety strategies. Although some of the classes are a bit pricey, if the student wants to get into a particular college,paying a fee to a test prep center may be the best option to get high scores on the SAT or ACT.
