Which Test to Take?

Foothill students having a tough time deciding between which college entrance exam is best for them are in luck.

Foothill's AABC booster group is hosting a combination practice test on Saturday, Feb. 6 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Foothill High. A minimal fee of $20 per student will be charged. All funds go to the AABC, which directly benefits Foothill students. Kaplan, the private firm running the workshop, is donating its services for this event.

Students will take portions of both the SAT and ACT during this workshop, set in a test-like environment and held under timed conditions. Students will get a comprehensive analysis of your test performance, detailing individual strengths and weaknesses, at a brief follow-up seminar on Monday, Feb. 8 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Students are encouraged to attend with their parents.

This workshop will help students identify the specific skills they should work on before taking actual exams.

Please drop by Foothill's counseling office to sign up for this one-time event. The deadline to register is Thursday, Feb. 4.
