Do you take the SAT/ACT serious enough?

It is amazing how many students don’t take the SAT/ACT test serious or have the misconception that you “can’t” study for either one.  Based on your budget, there are a ton of different options to prepare for the SAT/ACT. You can use free online resources for both the SAT and ACT, you can purchase books on Amazon starting at $5, or if your willing to spend a little more, you can take SAT courses online or ACT course online at your pace starting at $200 or work directly with a tutor 1-on-1 this summer for around $700.  As boring as studying for these tests can be, many of these resources cite significant improvement with a bit of studying and the online or 1-on-1 services often offer money back guarantees and/or free-trials if you do not see the desired results!
