TIME IS FLEETING!
1) The ACT (and the SAT) are timed tests.
This means that the more familiar you are with test format and pacing,
the better you can do with actual test content.
Don't go in cold--take some practice tests ahead of time!
PEOPLE, GET READY--
You can access free ACT test prep materials through the LILI database [code for "Libraries Linking Idaho"].
Click on the "Learning Express Library."
The area you're looking for is "College Admissions Test Preparation."
THE NITTY GRITTY
You have access to a total of 4 practice tests in each subject.
(Google specific test strategies based on subject, and practice with them to see which work for you.)
If you always take these tests with the "timed" option, you can work on your pacing.
ON YOUR MARK--
Carve out a block of 3 hours one week prior to the exam, and take one of the complete tests that you've saved out.
Replicate testing conditions as completely as possible.
When you're done, score the results and see how close to ready you are.
Snag some great sleep the night before.
Really. : )
Eat a solid breakfast! Your brain will be working hard, and it needs fuel to keep moving.
