to anyone who has already taken the ACT before, which part did you find the most challenging? also, is it possible to study for the reading/science parts? i heard that it was really hard to improve your score on those two sections

    For me, the writing section was most difficult.

    As for improving your score, I'm sure that practice tests and practice questions would help you out. There are ACT study guides and computer programs that have both of those.

    Good Luck

    science. do practice tests and strictly time yourself for this section. the main test is absorbing/understanding tables and graphs in very short periods of time.

    For me, the science section is the most difficult. You are rather pressed for time.

    the math , the science. I'm been praticing on the purple pratice tests , and time myself every two weeks on it.

    i agree with the other posters, science is the hardest because you have all these graphs and tables to look at and only a certain amount of time
    in my practice tests science was always my worst section and reading was my best but then on the day of the test my science was significantly better than my reading...weird lol

    Science is a pain. I hated that part when I took it. I also didn't care for english that much, but I didn't score fairly well in it. The math and reading parts I ate alive.

    Science without a doubt.

    Always, always remember that the science section is not about science. It's about reading comprehension and data interpretation. Everything that you need to correctly answer the question is provided to you. It's not that hard.

    I also think science is very easy and I HATE science. The thing is, it really only measures your ability to read and interpret graphs quickly which I can do, so I don't think it's that hard. I think reading is very hard and I am always pressed for time on that one.
