mark, the ACT has gained a ton of ground on the SAT in terms of number of students taking it, and how it is viewed, especially in more recent years.
EDIT -- Here's a little piece from Kaplan about the ACT/SAT for ya, mark.
The thing about the ACT is that you must be a good/fast reader.
Thanks, I think I would have been better off with "critical thinking and problem solving" SAT. I'm not a fast reader. I dominated the math even though half of it was reading problems. I scored about even with a monkey on the reading section. I also didn't too well in science since it was entirely reading, even-though I went through the highest level of science in high school and also took a college level science class.
