Study abroad: SAT and TOEFL exams

Every year over half a million foreign students attend colleges and universities in the US. These students come from countries around the world. The top two countries sending students to the US are India and China. Here is a map indicating which countries students come from to attend college or university in the US:

Each of these students had to take at least two major standardized exams in order to be admitted to a US college or university: TOEFL and SAT. Both tests are developed and administered by the College Board, a company bases in New Jersey.

Here is the website for TOEFL: http://www.ets.org/toefl

Both websites have free practice questions, along with test dates and locations, information on which tests are needed for particular college admissions and other useful information. They are a good starting point for exploring your study abroad options.
