About the ACT Test
What does the ACT test measure?
The ACT exam assesses educational development and readiness to pursue college-level coursework in English, mathematics, natural science, and social studies. The Science Test, which does not directly correspond to any SAT section, is a 40-question, 35-minute test that measures the skills required in the natural sciences: interpretation, analysis, evaluation, reasoning, and problem solving.
Is the ACT a fast-paced test?
Yes. Most students have difficulty finishing the test within the allotted time. Doing well on the ACT requires students to deal with the pressure of time limits, moving swiftly and efficiently through dense passages using techniques such as skimming and scanning. As a result, our ACT exam prep includes significant focus on timing strategy.
How can an ACT tutor help?
Working with an online or private ACT Tutor can provide an enormous advantage by teaching students how to maintain focus, manage their time and energy for the duration of the exam, and answer questions accurately and efficiently.
