I only took the SAT's in high school, but I just figured I could always retake it. I'm sure you'll do fine! Good luck.

I enjoyed the ACT much more than the SAT.  It is a standard timed aptitude test but focuses more on science and math rather than reading and comprehension.  Make sure you sleep the night before and eat the morning of the test.  I distract myself before timed tests because if I don't I focus too much on them and then I lose my ability to do well on the test.  Could work for you.

ACT was a good test.  I took it at the age of 26 because when I went back to school, the school I went to didn't look at the SAT's I did in High School.  Multiple Choice tests are just fun in general though.  I always loved the part where I eliminate the answers that are absolutely wrong  so I narrow it down to a choice between 2 or 3 instead of 4 or 5.  Sleep well, and have a good breakfast.  Low BG during test would be a bummer.

I took the ACTs, so much easier than the SATs. Good luck, don't stress yourself out too bad or your going to have high BGs instead!!
