Surprisingly low ACT English score - Should I get hand scoring?

When I got my ACT scores back, I was fine with how I did in all the sections except English. I’m completely shocked by how poorly I did in that section, considering I was getting raw scores of 71-75 on all of my practice tests (from the Red Book and other test prep books). Plus, I felt like I only m...

English ACT more important than Reading ACT?

I heard somewhere that colleges care more about the English ACT than they do about the Reading ACT. Is this true? It seems like the Reading ACT would line up better with the Reading SAT, so why would they not care about it as much?

Do ACT Subscores Matter for SAT Conversion?

How much do Math and English ACT subscores matter when approximating your SAT score from your ACT score? For example, does getting a 30 with subscores of E: 33 M:32 R: 28 S: 28 look better than getting a 30 with subscores of E: 27 M: 27 R: 28 S: 36? I know that a 30 on the ACT is around a 2000 on th...

Good ACT Math, Grammar Prep for 11th Grade December?

Is there any book or prep material for the Math and Grammar portion of the ACT? Something that teaches you the stuff, not just gives you practice tests. This is super important to me because a lot of the stuff on the test are things that our school doesn't plan to cover as a part of our curriculum f...

ACT English -- Alternatives to the Underlined Portion

Hello, I notice that I always make mistakes on the English section, when I am asked, "Which of the following alternatives to the underlined portion would not be acceptable?" The current strategies that I know of are crossing off "synonym vocabularies" and choosing "outlier" words. Do you know of any...

ACT English/Writing combined score - what's the point?

For both of the tests my daughter took, there was no difference between her English score and the combined English/Writing score (included at the bottom of the score report). Do some people's scores change when you lump the two together? Otherwise, I don't see what the point is.
