Which do you find easier, SAT or ACT?
I know it's different for everybody, but I'd like to see other people's opinions. I've noticed that people who identify themselves with certain skills, or even test taking techniques, tend to do better on one test than the other.
Personally, I find the SAT easier. I find the ACT questions to be fairly straightforward, but pacing is a pain. I hate having to go "BBBBBBBBB" on the last few questions because I have a minute left. Also, I don't know about you, but I hate that the ACT bubble sheet is all in one page. With every single section being in one page, I wouldn't be surprised if there's an unfortunate soul out there that accidentally bubbled in the wrong section, tried to fix it and got caught.
Strengths: I'm fairly good at math. Since math is half your score in the SAT, it brings my score up.
Weaknesses: I'm a slow reader, ergo, I don't finish the ACT reading and writing section.
I have only been speaking English for 5 years. This harms me on both tests, but this shouldn't be hard to improve.
Alright, now for your opinion!
