Another option to REMEMBER:
ACT has just launched their new ACT Academy, a free online learning program to help improve students’ ACT scores. Use this resource, similar to College Board's SAT Khan Academy, to improve your scores.
The Critical Reader’s Erica Meltzer has a test prep company but offers lots of good, free help and advice. Check out the website for her blog, quizzes and free study guides.
One of the most important skills to learn when taking standardized tests like the ACT is TIME MANAGEMENT.
Improve your reading score by using a timer when reading passages. Set it for 3 ½ minutes per and try and get the whole passage read. Then take a minute to list the major concept of each paragraph.
Take some practice tests using real time conditions to help you overcome that test anxiety. You can print out some free practice test at Prepscholar. Get out your sharpened pencils, set your timer and pretend it’s the real deal. Here’s the timing:
English is 45 minutes, Math is 60 minutes, 10 minute break, Reading is 35 minutes, Science is 35 minutes. This is the standard schedule for every ACT (if you later take another ACT with optional essay you’ll have a 5 minute break after Science and 40 minutes to complete the section.)
