Test Preparation

Understanding Admissions Exams

Standardized test scores on the ACT, SAT, LSAT, GMAT, and GRE are a major component of your college or graduate school application process. These tests can play a significant role in determining the future of your education. Standardized tests help determine your admission status and are often used in awarding merit-based scholarships, grants, fellowships and assistantships. Your selected college or university admissions office will tell you which exam may be required or reccommended with your application.
