Trevor’s Answer

Taking AP classes helped me a lot in the sense that I learned how to think critically and work fast. If you are not in any AP classes, don't worry. I remember feeling overwhelmed that I could not learn/master everything that will be on the test. So what I did was try to master what I am familiar with and once I have that down, begin branching out.

Hi Hannah,


Buy / rent / borrow at your local library any ACT prep book and start following that. They will typically ask you to start by taking a practice test of the ACT to see where your weak spots are. Then you study those sections the most, take frequent practice questions, analyze how to do better (e.g. is it a timing issue, a lack of knowledge, misreading questions, etc.), and then you take another practice ACT test again to see where you've improved and where you still need more work.

Sneha’s Answer

When I took the ACT, I realized it was more about critical thinking and speed than it was about content. Lots and lots of practice tests where you can keep track of how much time you need to spend on a passage vs. the questions. The more tests you take, the more you'll be able to see where you need to improve, then you can focus on that for a bit before you take another test.
