ACT Prep: How to Rock the Test

I scout for the absolute best resources for ACT prep, and I've found a great one.

My favorite resource is a program created by a veteran teacher. She's figured out how to combine solid test preparation with lifestyle changes to improve scores, and she guarantees a three-point increase!

Check it out here.

One of the best parts is how affordable her system is:cheaper than the gas it takes to get to a tutoring center.

Test preparation strategies: know yourself

Before you plan your ACT prep strategy, ask yourself some key questions about your study methods. Be honest with yourself! Pretending that you'll study every morning when you know you won't really do it is a setup for failure.

1. How have you studied for a major test successfully in the past?

2. What study strategies seem to work better for you--writing things down, playing games, reviewing materials, having conversations about subjects, seeing visual reminders, or something else?

3. How can you rally social support for your standardized test prep project? Yes, your mom wants you to pass the bar, but that kind of pressure isn't all that helpful. If you get friends and family excited about your study plan and supporting you in keeping it going, however, your chances for success increase dramatically.

4. How much structure do you need? Lots of options exist: classes, tutoring, study groups, workbooks, online programs, and more. If you're highly self-disciplined, a workbook and a few practice tests may be enough. But many people need extra support in the form of classes or one-on-one coaching.

Rock the ACT. Get ACT test prep strategies that actually work.
