Completing an ACT practice test is a practical way of determining whether or not the ACT is an appropriate college admissions test to take. It is also the best way to prepare for the ACT if this decision has already been made.
Each ACT includes a 45-minute English section, a 60-minute math section, a 35-minute reading section and a 35-minute science section. Optional essay-writing prompts are also available with practice tests. It is important that practice tests be completed under timed testing conditions to ensure the most accurate scores possible.
Online practice questions and a complete practice test are available through www.act.org. Most high school guidance offices also have a full-length ACT practice test available for students.
In addition, ACT publishes The Real ACT (through Peterson’s) that includes three ACTUAL practice tests. Practicing from actual tests and real questions is the best way to prepare for any exam.
