Who cares about SATs?

It's been a long time - nearly 20 years - since I took the SAT (yikes, I'm getting OLD!) but I still remember how nervous I was before the test.

The test itself is a blur now. I basically recall only one thing about it: a very boring reading passage about the moon. I do remember my feelings afterward, though, when I walked home after the test, mulling over questions I was unsure about and pondering my future. For weeks after the test, my AP classes were a-buzz with everyone talking about SATs, ACTs and colleges they were applying to. It was an anxious time, for sure.

How do YOU feel about the SAT and ACT? Do you feel enormous pressure to perform well on these tests? How many times have you taken it?
