As of 2015, students may view example questions for the SAT and ACT directly from the organizations that administer the tests at no charge. Both the actual test makers and third-party test preparation companies, such Barron's, sell additional study resources.
The College Board offers a free full-length practice exam to students preparing for the SAT. Upon completing the exam, students receive feedback detailing their performance on different categories of test questions, identifying topics to study further before taking the actual exam. The College Board also sells study guides and online courses for just over $30 as of 2015.
At no charge, the website for the ACT offers short blocks of questions and correct answers from each content area covered by the exam. Students who want full-length ACT exams to study may purchase The Real ACT Prep Guide or the ACT Online Prep course.
