getting a 30 on the ACTs

I took the ACTs last year and I got a 20, that was my first time taking it. I am trying to shoot for a 30. I know a lot of people say its impossible to do such a big jump, but I was just wondering if it really is? I mean I don't know if it helps (some people say it doesn't) but I'm taking an SAT/ACT prep course and they give a lot of helpful strategies and rules to follow when doing the test. I know I'm probably being unrealistic but if anyone has any advice or tips on what I can do I would really appreciate it, its not like I'm not willing to do any hard work..

    If you took it last year, then its definitely possible to achieve that big jump. It won't be easy, but its possible.

    The most important advice I can give you is this: PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!!

    Go to your local bookstore and buy a study guide that has practice tests included. If you practice enough, you'll become familiar with the types of questions that the test poses, and I promise you'll do much better. Good luck!
