While general discussion about the ACT test is allowed by ACT, discussion of test questions may violate your agreement with ACT. Please be thoughtful in your posts and replies.
i find that the act writing is actually harder than the sat essay just b/c it has real life examples. for the sat essay, i can use literary and historical examples. but for the act, i find it hard to use books/history when the essay is about, say, whether or not students should be punished for being late to class (sept 08 test).
so, what examples do you guys use for the act essay? are your strategies different from the sat?
