Why a Mock Test?

A practice test serves two purposes:

  • It provides a baseline score so that students understand their natural strengths and weaknesses.
  • It provides practice with content, pacing, and stamina in a simulated testing environment.

To get the most accurate results, we only use official full-length tests published by the College Board and the ACT.

$20 Registration- While the test itself is free, this fee covers a live proctor on test day, an individualized SAT or ACT score report, and a score report review meeting (at a time that's convenient for you).
