What does the ACT Skills & Strategies cover?

Students start by learning the overarching skills and strategies that allow them to navigate the ACT more effectively, then dive deeper into the nuances of the test. This includes, but is not limited to:​

  1. Gaining insights into how the exam makers design test questions, which allows students to stay one step ahead. 

  2. Developing a plan of attack when it comes to reading and annotating passages, understanding questions, and navigating distracting answer choices on the Reading section.

  3. Learning the fundamental skills and nuanced language rules that are necessary to succeed on the Writing section.

  4. Understanding best patterns and practices when it comes to tackling the notoriously content-heavy Math section.

  5.  Diving into what the Science section actually is, and how to understand what it's actually asking of students.

  6. Identifying a time management and pacing strategy that enables students to not only survive, but thrive during a 3 hour exam!
