    I actually don't have the accurate stats to back my comment up but when I took the ACT in September I only got a 24 on the reading and that was because I tried to nit pick: defining words, any question that reffered to specific paragraphs, and then I would race to read before the 8 minutes and 45 seconds were up for the left over questions. From the Rebook and Princeton Review practice tests I got between 28-31 on reading sections.

    I've gotten a 36, 35, 34, and 33 on the reading section of the ACT before and I always read the passage completely, unless I get a 5-minute warning mid-reading.
