Act science

I’m taking the act in around 16 days and I need massive help on the science portion which I have a 21 in right now. I’m going to order 500 questions to know by test day book and does anybody know any strategies to study this in 2 weeks this is my last chance so I’m giving it all that I have

    Hey. I managed to improve my ACT science score by 6 points (though guaranteed it was in more than 16 days). My biggest piece of advice is to do practice tests. Do one without timing yourself to see if your issue is more content or timing. One tip for timing is to just skim the passage and go back once you what information the questions are asking for. The questions can be very dense so I recommend underlining the important points.

    Hi, I'm a tutor. I have an article on my site that deals with this issue. Go to the website that's in my profile picture, and add /act-science-tips/ afterwards. Sorry, but CC doesn't allow me to post the full links!

    My son improved his ACT science by just doing practice tests - the free ones on the act site - just did the science only tests the week leading up to the test.
