Get Ready to Master the ACT
Don’t remain paralyzed by the prospect of preparing for the ACT!
The first step to ACT exam prep is to register for the test. You can do so online. The process isn’t complicated.
Next, you should make sure that you understand the format of the test you’re facing as well as how it’s scored.
The ACT has four sections – English, Math, Reading, and Science – and is in multiple-choice format. The score is a composite of each section, with the final score maxing out at 36.
Become Familiar with the Style and Content of the ACT
Each section of the ACT will require different preparation. Language conventions, reading comprehension, scientific reasoning, and mathematical prowess are very different subjects and will require targeted preparation.
Diagnose Your Skills
Before beginning any program, either independently or as part of an organization, you’ll need to take a diagnostic exam. This step will give you a starting point, allowing you to know your strengths and weaknesses.
Livius Prep offers a FREE Foundations course that provides 10 weeks of instruction regarding strategies and tips for taking the test and culminates with a full-length practical exam, which we will score and analyze.
Identify Your Ideal Score
After taking the initial practice test, you will have a beginning score and should then set a score you hope to meet. The students at Livius Prep see an average score increase of 6 points.
Brush Up on Content
The diagnostic test provides you with information about areas of weakness. Identify learning gaps and fill them by brushing up on content area knowledge. At Livius Prep, you can choose among an online classroom based program of tutoring, an online private tutor, or an in-person private tutor.
Learn Test-Taking Strategies
The ACT is a tricky trickster. The test is timed and has some quite difficult questions; however, you can develop strategies for taking the test that can help you answer every question correctly given enough study and practice.
Practice, Practice, Practice
Practice sharpens your skills, reminds you of content, and puts you in the frame of mind for success.
