The CAKE is an interactive tool you can use to improve your College Knowledge. Knowledge is a critically important foundation to making informed college decisions! The CAKE has four ingredients to test your knowledge of College Culture, College Choice, the Application Process, and Financial Aid. The test begins with a baker’s dozen of questions (13) and scores your answers to give you a taste of the CAKE, after which you can choose whether or not you would like to continue. You can improve your knowledge in each of the four areas before taking the CAKE by using the study guides for each topic, which are College Culture, College Choice, the Application Process, and Financial Aid.
