SAT I or SAT Reasoning Test is an entrance exam used by most American colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. It is the second most important factor for the decision making after high school GPA. The intention of this test is to accurately evaluate students’ innate intelligence and predict their performance in colleges. Although test preparation is officially claimed to be unnecessary, all students we helped in the past made significant score increase.

ACT Test is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions in the United States produced by ACT, Inc. It was first administered in November 1959 by Everett Franklin Lindquist as a competitor to the College Board's Scholastic Aptitude Test, now the SAT. The ACT originally consisted of four tests: English, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Natural Sciences. In 1989, the Social Studies test was changed into a Reading section (which included a Social Studies subsection) and the Natural Sciences test was renamed the Science Reasoning test, with more emphasis on problem solving skills. In February 2005, an optional Writing test was added to the ACT, mirroring changes to the SAT that took place later in March of the same year. In the spring of 2015, the ACT will start to be offered as a computer-based test that will incorporate some optional Constructed Response Questions; the test content, composite score, and multiple choice format will not be affected by these changes. The test will continue to be offered in the paper format for schools that are not ready to transition to computer testing.
The ACT has seen a gradual increase in the number of test takers since its inception, and in 2011 the ACT surpassed the SAT for the first time in total test takers; that year, 1,666,017 students took the ACT and 1,664,479 students took the SAT. All four-year colleges and universities in the U.S. accept the ACT, but different institutions place different emphases on standardized tests such as the ACT, compared to other factors of evaluation such as class rank, GPA, and extracurricular activities. The main four tests are scored individually on a scale of 1–36, and a Composite score is provided which is the whole number average of the four scores.
SAT II Subject Tests and AP Tests are both exams in specific subject areas administered by the College Board but with different purposes. SAT II tests are high school-level tests, indicating a student’s readiness to take college-level courses. In contrast, AP exams measure a student’s college-level knowledge and skills gained through the corresponding AP courses. Therefore, AP tests typically cover more advanced topics with a greater depth than SAT II tests.
SAT II tests are often required as part of the admission process by top-ranked colleges. AP tests, on the other hand, are usually used to place out of required college courses. But they may also send a powerful message to colleges and universities that you're ready for them, and can enable you to gain admission.

Our instructors have unparalleled academic qualifications, and are approachable and exceptional at connecting with students.
