But, before you can even get to those steps you're faced with the prospect of taking the SAT or ACT-two of the most daunting tests of a young person's life. Maybe you're not a good test-taker, or you freeze under pressure, causing your score to plummet-what do you do now? Are you hopes of getting into a good college dashed forever?
