novanative75, you wouldn't happen to know the diffrence between SAT Reasoning Test (formerly known as SAT I) and SAT Subject Tests (formerly known as SAT II). Which one is the right one to take?

SAT Subject are individual subject based tests that students take either for admissions purposes to highly selective colleges (i.e. most of your highly competitive colleges will ask for two subject tests, used to be three before the writing section of the SAT, in addition to the SAT Reasoning.)
The SAT Reasoning Test is what you want and the major test that is used for college admissions.

Always a great idea to check the admissions requirements and see if they requrie the SAT II but I think you are good with the Reasoning.

Huh, imagine that. Florida is one of the few states that I did not look at.

Where I'm at, as long as you have one semester of college credits under your belt (6-12 credits), you don't need any admissions tests (ACT, SAT) to transfer. You also don't need an Associates degree. Depending on the school, if you complete an Associate of Arts (or similar) the four year school will waive the Gen Ed requirements, or require you to only take one or two more courses to fulfill their requirements. Check the schools you are interested in transferring to (websites are very helpful - you can usually click on Admissions, or type in Transfer Admissions into the search engine - most college websites have them).

saw a bunch of really good responses to your thread.

This link explains the difference between the ACT and SAT: SAT vs. ACT: What Are The Real Differences? - MSN Encarta My oldest son took both and found the ACT a little bit easier. I've heard other students describe the ACT as less "tricky" then the SAT.

Default yes, in my state

In my state you can transfer into a public four year college with 30 or more semester credits (college-level only, not preparatory) with a 2.5 or better. You would probably still need to take an ACT or Compass test for placement into math and English if you were not transferring in your requirements in those areas.
