Super Helpful SAT & ACT Phone App Study Guides

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Here we go again.  I have a high school junior again and that means it is ACT and SAT prep time.  Class of 2020 parents, the time is now.  Stressful, I know.  I have two super cool phone apps SAT/ACT study guides that my son found to be very helpful in 2015 when he was preparing for these college entrance exams. Both are still current so read on to get the apps and the information. I just love that one app is called Question A Day because it doesn’t sound so overwhelming and eases the student into study prep for the big and very important SAT and ACT test season. How does a SAT Question A Day app sound to you?  It sounded good to my son, so he tried it, liked it and searched to see if there was also a phone app to help with ACT prep.  And there is!  Here are the links and we highly recommend both…

SAT Question A Day

Here is how it works…I copied the explanation from the SAT app prep website…

Make practice part of your routine—any place, any time. Answer a question a day on the Daily Practice for the New SAT app and get immediate feedback. The free app makes it easy to:

Answer an exclusive, official reading, writing and language, or math question.
Reveal a hint if you’re stuck.
Read answer explanations and learn from your mistakes.
Keep at it—daily practice can only sharpen your skills.

My son swore by this.  Now here is the ACT app…


Here is the description from the ACT prep app website…

Set your ACT test prep books aside and download ACT Up, the world’s most advanced mobile ACT test prep solution featuring delightful interaction, regimented practice, and adaptive feedback.  Sound too good to be true? Install ACT Up and see for yourself.

I can tell you that it was not too good to be true.  My son really liked these handy study apps and he did extremely well on the both the ACT (he scored in the 98%) and the SAT (he scored in the 90%).

So here we go again.  Try these apps and good luck to all out there. Junior year is a big one!  And here is a sweet picture of my other junior, the one in college now who swore by these study apps.
