The ubiquity of online ACT prep courses has opened up the arena to some disreputable and low-quality options. As with any other investment, do a bit of research to verify the legitimacy and quality of the company you choose.
Elements to Look for include the following:

The rating the company has from the BBB will give you insight into the appropriateness of customer service, and the site will tell you how long the business has been established and information concerning claims against the company.
Online Resources – We live in an online world, full of consumer reports sites like Yelp. Do a quick search on any test prep companies you consider in order to garner a clear view of prior customers’ experiences.
Should You Take the SAT or the ACT?
Deciding between the SAT and the ACT isn’t an obvious choice. Institutions of higher learning don’t really prefer one or the other. Students would be wise to avail themselves of a comparison test, like the one offered by Livius Prep. The tests are different in scope, perspective, time allowed, and scoring.
The SAT has two sections; the ACT has four. The ACT has strict time limits, more difficult math, a greater number of grammatical questions, and lengthier reading sections. The ACT also has a science section while the SAT doesn’t.
