improving act by 4 points
hi! i've only taken the ACT once, but I did study for it a lot. i took a practice diagnostic test around october 2016 and got a 25 and then studied and got a 30 composite on the real act in april 2017. (35E 31M 26R 28S)
i'm registered to take the june act, but i have not been studying one bit. i've been busy studying for ap tests, sat subject tests, school, etc. my goal score is a 34, but i don't think i'll be able to self prep enough to achieve that score. i am going to take the act a few more times in the fall, but i don't want my score to drop during the june act.
i was looking into prepscholar and green test prep for structured online courses. i've scoured through CC, fb, and a ton of other sites, trying to see what people have said about these companies. there's a lot of controversy, and i am torn. i'd only be spending $400-$500 for these prep classes, so i'm not really worried about the money. however, i would really like to see significant improvement. i am willing to put in the time after ap tests are over/during the summer and would really like to see a 4 point boost by the time september/october rolls around.
the areas i need the most improvement on are reading and science. are online test prep classes good for those subjects?
should i go for prepscholar or green test prep?
thanks to anybody that replies! i really appreciate it!
