SAT/ACT Podcast

Charles County Public Schools is proud to present the SAT/ACT Podcast. This series of audio clips is meant to help students and parents better prepare for the SAT and ACT. The clips cover the differences between the two tests, how to create a successful preparation plan, studying tips and helpful resources, test-taking strategies and what to expect after the test is complete. The advice comes directly from students who have taken the tests. The student comments are based on personal test-taking experiences and are meant only as helpful hints for other students.
