I am wonder what a few different test are for.

Question 1
I have taken the SAT tests along time ago when I was in high school. I was in a book store and saw they had PSAT.
What is the difference between the SAT and the PSAT exams and which one is harder? (when would one be required to take one over the other?)

Question 2
I have also taken some AP exams when I was in high school and they where used to skip a beginning course in calculus. But I saw they have CLEP test/exam books how are the clep exam in college different from the AP exams in high school. Are they harder?

Would clep math be harder/different questions then a AP calculus high school test ? (i.e different material)

Question 3
I am wondering for graduate school entrance exams we have the GRE , GMAT , LSAT , MCAT.
What are the difference between them, which one is harder, and when would you have to take one as opposed to the other to get into graduate schools?

I do know LSAT is for law school , and MCAT is for medical school already but curious what the difference in taking GMAT or GRE exam ?

Question 4
If one was going to home school their child thru middle school and high school what exams would the child have to be ready to pass to go to a good college.
For example say I was a expert teacher and wanted to just teach my son thru all the years up to college. Would he only need to ACE the SAT and the GED exams to be able to get a high school diploma / go to a good college

Question 5
Heard of a high school test called ACT when would one have to take this. Or for what reason would one want to take this.
