For nontraditional students, preparation for the ACT exam or SAT exam can seem overwhelming. First, realize that these are primarily basic multiple choice exams. The most important thing to remember is to take your time and make sure you understand what the question is asking for before answering. If you are not sure of an answer, or need to think about it, skip it and come back to it if you have time.
The Princeton Review test preparation guides, the Cracking the ACT, 2009 Edition and the Cracking the SAT, 2009 Edition are two of the best preparation guides available.
