The practice test?

<p>How accurate is the practice test on the ACT website compared to the real deal? I scored a 26 on the math portion and after checking over dumb mistakes, I would have a 28. Is this test reflect the real thing. I times myself and everything too.</p>

<p>Make sure you understand what the dumb mistakes were and why you made them.</p>

<p>Then wait a week or so and re-take the test. If you understood your mistakes then you should get your target score.</p>

<p>It's what I did and I went from a 29 to a 32.</p>

<p>I got a 32 I think when I did it... then took two from the Red Book and got a 33 and either another 33 or a 34. Then got a 35 on the real thing without doing anything else. </p>

<p>So I'd say it's pretty accurate.</p>

<p>Well, it is written by the writers of the actual ACT tests. Almost certainly, the writers did not "dumb down" or "make harder" or "skew curves" for that test. I would say it is very accurate.</p>
