ACT Reading test- read passage?

<p>I'm just wondering, do you read the passage or does that waste time?</p>

<p>What will be the best?</p>

<p>I read the passage first.</p>

<p>before, i used to do what i did on the SAT-never read the passage, read questions and look them up, but then i realized that on the ACT, the questions are a bit easier, and its better to read the passage, then answer the questions.</p>

<p>Different methods work for different people - personally, I prefer to read the entire passage, then answer the questions, referring back to the passage only if needed. Some people find it easier to skim the passage instead of reading it, or to read the questions before the passage in order to pay closer attention to the important parts. You should get a hold of some practice tests and try a different approach for each one until you find what works best for you. Good luck.</p>

<p>on SAT, I read the passge, on ACT, I read the question and underline key words and phrase.s then I fidn the key words/phrases in the text. it's usually easier for me that way....</p>
