SAT/ACT: What is the difference between the two?

All four-year colleges or universities will accept EITHER the SAT or ACT test results for admission.  The ACT is more of a memory test, rather than a reasoning test like the SAT.  The SAT consists of writing, critical reading and math.  The ACT tests more about what you know.  It includes a 40 question science reasoning section, covers English grammar, and includes some trigonometry.  It is advised that students planning on majoring in a field related to math and/or science also take the ACT.
