Necessary to take full practice tests when studying for the SAT?

I have the SAT Blue Book, and I'm wondering if I should do the full practice tests or if I can just do sections. I don't have many opportunities to spend an extended period of time on practice testing. Will it matter if I do mostly individual sections when I study?

Will SAT prep help me on the ACT?

I know that the two tests are pretty different, but will studying for the SAT make you more prepared for the English, Reading and Math sections of the ACT? I've already taken the SAT, but I want to try out the ACT too, and I'm not sure what my game plan should be or if I even need to study more.
