ACT Testing Strategies
Look at these strategies to help you on the ACT!
Skip the difficult questions!
Quality over Quantity!
Chunk word problems!
Annotate & Chunk!
In the science test you will get different kind of problems that are just picture or just words, annotate on both of them! Make connections with the pictures and make connections with the paragraphs to help with the questions. I promise you it will help, it helped me.
Just like in the math word problems, chunk together the important information in the science! They put unnecessary information in there to trip you up! It will make more sense if you chunk all the importance together.
Use your own words & Predict!
As you are reading the questions, substitute your own words for the underlined portions and as you are going through the answers, find the ones that make the most sense. This will help on all of the underlined word problems and underlined phrases when you need help understanding what it means.
Using your own words can be the same as predicting. Just assume something else in its position to help get a better understanding of it.
