And 87% agree with the ACT maker’s decision to change the ACT to a computer-based format in 2015. A Kaplan SAT and ACT expert can discuss how these significant revamps will affect students and how they should best get ready for them. (Note: Since the survey was conducted, the test maker has announced that the changes have been delayed until 2016.)|
