How is everyone studying for the June ACT?
With a little over a month to go, I'm pretty anxious about taking the ACT. This would be my first time, outside of a practice test I took sophomore year. Has anyone found any good resources/have some tips they could share?
The Official ACT Prep Guide 2020 - 2021, (Book + 5 Practice Tests + Bonus Online Content)
it is a really good book. I and a group of friends study from this book together.
Ive been struggling with finding good resources to study the SAT because I scored a 800 on the PSAT my freshman year and haven’t taken the SAT because of COVID. Lately Ive been using Kahn academy SAT practice, its pretty boring but its actually helped me, you can do FR practice tests that are the real length, reading passages(science ones and history ones also) daily to practice reading is pretty well also, familiarizing yourself with the test format, watching YouTube videos on SATs, and practice!
I used a prep book (the Official ACT Prep Guide), and timed it just like the actual test (doing all four parts at the same time, too!) If you struggle with a particular section (for example, my math score is my lowest), then I’d recommend doing the extra practice problems for that section. There are also books you can get with strategies, but personally, I recommend you just take the practice tests and see how they go. You’ll be able to time yourself, see where you get rushed and where you have extra time, and the types of questions you may struggle on. I hope this helps!
It does help, thanks! I struggle with math too so I know how it is. Good luck!
