College Entrance Exam Resources

The next ACT test date is October 25. The next date for the SAT and Subject Tests is November 1. Are you ready?

Your Fauquier County Public Library card allows you to access Peterson's online practice tests and test prep e-books for free. You'll also want to take advantage of the books and other materials available for checkout. For details, see the For the College Bound section on the library's Web site.

On the Web, the College Board has an official SAT Preparation Center with links to test prep questions, an official practice test and more. Be aware that they also use the site to try and sell you test prep workbooks and guides.

The ACT student site also has free test prep, including test taking tips and test descriptions. You may also want to check out their student blog and hear from real students about their experiences preparing for and taking the exam.

For the 2008-2009 schedule of test dates, registration deadlines and fees, see the College Board (SAT) and the ACT web sites.
