I suppose the SAT seems harder for those who are weaker in verbal; is this true?

The ACT has science (which needs virtually no prior knowledge), writing (which is basically grammar), and mathematics to make up for a weak verbal (esp. reading comp.) score.

In my opinion, the SAT is mainly figuring out HOW to score high, and of course knowing vocab. Those who can answer tricky questions will score higher. The ACT is more how much you know. To me, the ACT is a much easier test, and I scored ALOT higher. (1340 SAT, 34 ACT)
