Princeton Review offers free practice tests

For cash-strapped families with college-bound children, getting financial aid has become as essential as college admission. Since most colleges use the SAT or ACT to qualify applicants for admission as well as in awarding grants and scholarships, higher scores on these tests are doubly important in these tough economic times. To help students do their best on these exams and to encourage them to create a timely and focused study plan, The Princeton Review has scheduled National Testing Day on April 25, when teens nationwide can experience a full-length practice test for the SAT or ACT and receive a detailed score analysis. "Taking full-length SAT and ACT practice tests motivates students to take charge of their own college planning," said Robert Franek, VP/Publisher, The Princeton Review. "Students who experience simulated testing conditions clearly understand the focus and stamina needed for a four-hour high-stakes test - that's half the battle."

The Princeton Review practice tests and score reports are completely cost-free, and stress-free, while students generally pay around $45 to take an actual SAT or ACT. In addition to saving money, the practice tests help students become familiar with the test formats, pacing, question types, and physical and mental demands of the SAT and ACT.

On April 25, students can also choose to take the Princeton Review Assessment (PRA). The PRA is a unique four-hour diagnostic test created by The Princeton Review with sample questions from both the SAT and ACT. It is designed to reveal whether a student may do better on one college entrance exam than another. Many students who have taken the Princeton Review PRA have said that getting a chance to experience the different styles of both tests was ultimately helpful in choosing whether to take both tests or focus on just one.

The free SAT, ACT and PRA practice tests are open to all high school students. Space is limited and reservations are required. For more information, call 800-2REVIEW or visit: PrincetonReview.com/NationalTestingDay.aspx.
