Colleges use the SAT to measure verbal and mathematical reasoning abilities and to assess an applicant's readiness for college. It is a three-hour exam that is divided into seven sections: three verbal, three math, and one experimental which could be either math or verbal. The test is administered on paper.
The SAT is scored on a scale of 200-800 for both the math and verbal sections. The College Board sets the average at 500 for each section for all test takers. A perfect score on the SAT is 1600. In recent years, fewer than 20% of all test takers achieve a math score of 600 or better. Fewer than 10% score higher than 600 on the verbal section.
There are two ways to register for the SAT:
1. Fill out the paper registration form in the College Board's SAT Bulletin. Get a free copy of this publication through your guidance counselor.
2. Visit College Board to register online. Select your test date and test center then immediately receive registration confirmation.

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple-aptitude battery that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military. ASVAB scores are used to determine if you are qualified to enlist in the military and to assign you to an appropriate job in the military.
Most ASVAB testing is conducted at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS). If you do not live near a MEPS, you may take the ASVAB at a satellite location called a Military Entrance Test (MET) site. The ASVAB is administered by computer at all MEPS, and by paper and pencil at most MET sites. Regardless of whether you take the ASVAB by computer or paper and pencil, your scores should be very similar.Facts Sheet Applicants
