Whether you have to take a college or graduate school entrance test — ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, or LSAT — we know that only a rare breed of people look forward to any test. But the fact of the matter is, whether college or graduate school, higher education institutions often require these tests for admission. Furthermore, some demand a high test score if you want to get their attention.
Our best advice is that you study for the test. Be prepared for what you’ll be tested on, learn your strengths and weaknesses, become comfortable with the general aspects of the test and the time allotted for each section. There’s likely nothing that has prepared you for the actual test taking part of the test, despite having learned the material you need to know — that’s an important distinction!
To help you succeed, we’ve consulted with test tutors to create recommendations that match which test you need to prepare for, and how you prefer learning.
