Would You Score Better on the SAT or the ACT?

Most college-bound students today recognize they have more than one college admissions test option: last year, 1.2 million students took the ACT, while 1.4 million took the SAT. Virtually all U.S. universities and colleges accept both tests.

While many students try their hand at both the SAT and the ACT, most still only take one of the two tests. But how do you decide which to take?
