OVERVIEW
The college entrance placement testing exams are used by all of the military academies and ROTC programs to determine candidates' aptitude. For the most part, the ACT and SAT are the most important. These exams are given at area high schools or local colleges. Make arrangements with school officials or contact the services directly. Unlike the ASVAB, where the military makes the arrangements and gives the test, it is up to you to make your own arrangements.
