FAQ: The SAT or the ACT: How do we choose?

This is the topic we cover most often in our SAT/ACT consultations. There is no one size fits all answer to this question. We often tell students that it is a personal preference for most test takers; however, from our many years of teaching and having tutored literally thousands of SAT/ACT students – THE VAST MAJORITY of students prefer the SAT (in its current format) over the ACT.  The reasons may vary but the most often cited reason is the strict and unforgiving timing of the ACT sections. Also, many students find the Science section to be vexing. It really isn’t science per say – science is a bit of a misnomer. The Science section is really Reading Comp with a “science” twist, comprised mostly of data and graph analysis. Some students don’t mind the science section and some students find ACT questioning to be more straightforward – for that reason we encourage students to take a full length diagnostic of each exam at our Center when first exposed to the exams. The SAT exam is more forgiving on the timing per section, includes 2 math sections , no science section, and one Reading Comp section and one Grammar editing section. 


What distinguishes Resource Room’s Private (One-to-One) SAT Approach?

Students who work with us in a one-to-one setting will receive the benefit of an individualized instructional approach. Some students struggle more in one particular area, requiring some remediation or additional instructional support. Other students may require a more balanced approach, but struggle in areas like timing and testing stamina. Regardless of the student needs, Resource Room has a specified approach available to help all of our students achieve their academic goals.

  • All of our students have online access to study materials, homework, lessons, and quizzes.
  • Our Private SAT Prep program is determined by the individual needs of the student.
  • We use the highest quality Diagnostic Tests to determine what level the student is on and where they need help.
  • Each session is structured to meet individual needs, we introduce strategies specific to their learning style.
  • Periodic assessments measure progress.
  • We guarantee the same tutor throughout the duration of the program.
  • All are licensed teachers with extensive experience.
  • We use cutting-edge techniques and drills to maximize timing, strategy, and stamina.

What does the SAT Test Cover?

The SAT Exam has undergone several changes over time, and some more recently. The SAT Exam primarily evaluates both Verbal and Math skills. This is done through testing Reading Comprehension, Grammar Editing, Math without a calculator, and Math with a calculator. The SAT Exam no longer offers the Written Essay portion of the exam.


SAT Verbal focuses on critical reading and grammar editing skills.


SAT Math relies heavily on basic arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, data analysis, and applied math.

This course will also include a discussion of the effective use of a graphing calculator. We recommend and use the Texas Instruments version.


There is no longer an optional Essay for SAT test takers. This was removed. All students will now have the traditional 4 sections and some experimental sections that College Board uses to field test questions for future exams. 


We highly recommend one-to-one tutoring for students who are below grade level, who struggle with Math or Writing in school, have Special Education Needs, or who have test anxiety. We work to build confidence, focus, and – most importantly- stamina. The SAT is a three-hour examination (possibly six (6) hours for students who receive extended time). Maintaining focus for such a length of time is key to high performance on the exam. This is often overlooked by most tutors and centers.

You will find that our sessions are high energy, individualized, and promote focus, organization, and confidence.
