Princeton review has announced that they will be offering free SAT and ACT exams on April 28, 2007 in various locations around the country. They are also offering students the opportunity to take the Princeton Review Assessment which they say is a test to “expose you to both the SAT and ACT. It’s a measurement tool that can help you determine if you would score higher on the SAT or ACT.” I have not seen this review assessment before but I assume it has portions of standardized tests similar to both the ACT and the SAT to see on which you perform better.
Presumably there will be a discussion at each site on why you should register to take a review course with Princeton Review. Despite that, it may be helpful for some students to consider taking a free exam under standard testing conditions to see how they perform without having to worry about reporting a score. After you get your score, if you don’t do as well as desired, take several weeks to consider your options. Some people can prepare for standardized tests by themselves using resources available on the web and in any major bookstore. If you decide you wish to use a test preparation company then you can investigate the various options without the pressure from any particular company.
