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.
