Questions About the ACT (Studying, Improvement, etc.)
Hello. I made a post a couple of weeks ago where I asked about the possibility for my SAT score to improve dramatically. Since then, I have taken two ACT practice tests and achieved better scores (29 and 31). I have discovered that I am doing considerably better in the English category of the ACT than on the SAT with my best scores being 35 in Writing and 36 in Reading, while my Math and Science scores have been a little worse with my best being a 27 in Math and 26 in Science. As I write this, I have 3 months until the October ACT and 6 months until my final ACT, and my goal is to get a 34, 35, or 36. Prior to taking the 2 ACT practice tests, I had already taken 2 SAT practice tests (1270 on both), had been running English exercises on Khan Academy (SAT) for a couple of weeks, and had been lightly practicing the Math section of the SAT for a month. Since the last ACT I took (1 week), I've been running over the answers I got wrong on Math and Science and have been brushing up on some Basic Chemistry. Taking my current scores, the preparation that I've undergone so far, and the time I have left all into account, would that goal of 34, 35, 36 be feasible to achieve? Can Khan Academy's SAT practice be useful for the ACT? How much science do I need to know for the ACT? And lastly, what are some good methods for finishing on time? I've tested myself on the Math and Science sections without time and have achieved 28's and 29's.2 replies
