You should also consider whether the colleges that you’re interested in require or recommend Subject Tests. Some colleges will grant an exemption from or credit for a freshman course requirement if a student does well on a particular SAT Subject Test. Some colleges and universities require one or more Subject Tests along with the SAT. You may use the same registration form to register for both tests. We would advise that you check with the campus you plan on applying to for specific admission requirements.
If your school requires SAT Subject Tests, are you wondering which test to take? There are 20 Subject Tests across five general subject areas: history, mathematics, science, English and foreign languages. The SAT Subject Tests that you take should be based on your interests and academic strengths. The tests are a great way to indicate interest in specific majors or programs of study (e.g., engineering, pre-med, cultural studies).SAT Test Dates for 2013-2014

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is the most widely administered aptitude test in the United States. About 900,000 students in approximately 14,000 schools take the ASVAB annually. The ASVAB is called an aptitude battery because its results are used to predict the ability to learn skills – specifically skills required for different work. No military items are included and the test is based on research to help predict success in a wide range of different jobs. The ASVAB consists of ten tests: General Science, Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Numerical Operations, Coding Speed, Auto and Shop Information, Mathematics Knowledge, Mechanical Comprehension, and Electronics Information. The test has 334 items administered in a 2 ½ hour session. The results help focus student interest and aptitude for careers – both military and civilian. Scores on each test are provided as well as scores clustered around Verbal Skills, Math Skills, and Science/Technical Skills. There are numerous resources available on line to assist in studying for the ASVAB.
Resources for the ASVAB include:
