Where Should I Go From Here?

Hello everybody!

So, here's the situation. I will be retaking the ACT in June of this year so I can get a better score. The last time I took the ACT was in April and I got 33 Composite with 34 E, 36 M, 32 R, and 31 S. I did not take the writing test for that ACT, which is also part of the reason I need to retake the test. I am wondering what test prep materials and books I should read in the next approx. 3 weeks that would help me raise my score by a couple of points. I have about 5 hours a day to study for the ACT (lol so happy none of my summer activities start until after the June test date). I know I need to focus my prep on Reading/Writing and Science areas, but I'm not sure what to do. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

BTW Can anybody give me specific tips on how to ace the essay?
