While I do not have children that are at the age where they'll be preparing for PSATs, SATs, ACTs and the like, I know that some of my readers do have children in that stage of life.
I remember back to my days in high school and having to take the ACT (Did I have to take the PSAT or SAT back then? I can't even remember!). While I had an overall "okay" score on my ACT I can still remember not having a clue about some of the sections on that test.
Of course, I had no prep for it like students do now. I guess back then either I knew it or I didn't. And in spite of the fact that I didn't have this incredible ACT score, I did get into college, graduated with a degree and pursued my career as a teacher.
However, looking back, I do wish I had been better prepared for a test such as the ACT because I know that the learning that would have taken place preparing for a test like that would have continued to be beneficial as I pursued a degree.
So while I may not be an expert on the best way to prepare your child for the PSAT, SAT, ACT, etc., I know there are experts out there with the right tools to help students be better equipped at taking these types of tests.
Because like it or not, certain degrees and schools depend heavily on your test scores so it's a good idea to be as prepared as you can be.
