    I am in an accredited American curriculum high school. Is the ACT obligatory? I am planning to take the SAT I later this year(i'm a sophomore). Another question is which is a better test prep company? Barron's or Kaplan?

    Thanks. All help is kindly appreciated.:)

    The ACT is definitely not required if you take the SAT. However, some people (such as myself) do better on the ACT than the SAT and vice versa. If you have the time and money, I would try to take both tests to see which one you are better at, but you don't need to.

    In regards to test prep courses, I have not taken a class from either Barron's or Kaplan, but rather a different company and to tell you the truth, it was a waste of money. I ended up just looking at some test prep books on my own time and that helped me more than any prep class could. Good luck!

    If you want tests to review, you should get the College Board Blue Book. If you actually need to review the materials, get either Barron's or Princeton Review which are my personal favorites.
