About Standardized tests – like the ACT and SAT?

“Standardized tests, like the ACT have very little in common with the tests you might take in school.  In school, tests have a lot to do with your ability to memorize a lot of information ahead of time and then recall that material on test day. But doing well on the ACT is much more about being able to understand a set of standardized rules and patterns, and then recognizing those rules and patterns in action and responding accordingly on test day, in a highly repetitive way.  The skills that you need to do well on the ACT simply aren’t the same skills you’ve developed in school, for the most part” – Mike Barrett, author of:  The ACT Prep Black Book.
