How to Choose the Best ACT/SAT Prep Program
The most well-suited program will differ depending on the student. For students who come to Livius Prep, we suggest determining the right exam first, so we offer a free SAT/ACT Comparison Exam for this purpose.
Deciding which college readiness test is better matters because the tests are different. Some students will have a distinct tendency toward doing better on one or the other.
The ACT has four sections: math, reading, language, and science reasoning. Each section’s score will range from 1 to 36, so the final score is an average of all the sections combined. The SAT has two sections: math and language. The final score can range from 400-1600 and is an aggregate of the two scores.
Over time, the ACT has become more popular than the SAT. It has harder math, more grammar questions, a separate science section, and longer reading sections, but the SAT focuses on logic more than knowledge.
Preparation for the SAT and ACT
Once you know which test is preferable, begin preparation. We offer a foundation course for both the SAT and ACT. This free course is an online, 4-week course that provides test-taking skills and strategies. At the end of the program, students take a simulated, proctored exam that we will then use to map out an effective tutoring plan by identifying areas of strength as well as areas that require targeted remediation.
Once done with the foundation course, you’ll choose among the courses we offer. Prepare with Livius Prep either online or in-person. Our online programs include Prep Essentials with a 12-hour live, interactive, online classroom program of tutoring and 12-hours of private tutoring online with all the benefits of Prep Essentials as well.
In-person, Livius Prep provides 12 hours of private tutoring at our locations in Newton, Lexington, or Wellesley.
