Retaking sat/act.

<p>I know this question has been asked before but I haven't really found a good answer. Will retaking the sat or act in college be a waste?
When I took the SAT and ACT last year I didn't really take it that serious and didn't realize their importance. Now I'm at community college and wish that I would have taken the right steps to get me into a decent school. When I took the ACT I got a 33 in the math and did poorly on the other sections leaving me with a 27 total. I never studied or anything last year so I know that if I studied now I could easily improve my other sections. I'm not going to waste my time if these scores won't even be looked at though.
Thanks in advance for the help.</p>
