ACT Reading - Should I read the questions or passage first?

I’m really working on improving my ACT reading score (23). Something I am confused about is whether I should be reading the passage before looking at the questions, or reading all of the questions before reading the passage. What are the pros and cons of each?

New SAT vs ACT: More Time Pressure?

Various websites point out that the SAT gives more time per question, thus students may feel less rushed on it than on the ACT. But a presentation given at my kid's high school last week by the head of guidance and a Kaplan rep said that SAT questions are longer than ACT questions (i.e., reading pas...

Mid-20s on ACT Reading - how to improve?

I keep taking practice tests, but my score never seems to shift from around a 25 on the Reading section. Going straight to the questions didn't work at all for me. Should I just read the whole passage very fast first? Every time I take it I freak out about time...got any tips for me?

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?

More ACT Paired Passage and Essay Prompt Practice?

Where can I get more samples of dual passage ACT reading sections (and the new essay)? The official ACT folks have yet to release a book newer than their 2011 one. Princeton Review seems to only have one sample in their Cracking book (not even one in their practice tests in the back). Any advice?

MIT with 33 ACT Score But 27 on Reading?

I'm hoping to apply to some very selective engineering colleges, including MIT and Caltech. I'm a little worried about my ACT scores because I only got a 27 on the Reading section. This is six points below any of my other section scores. Will it hurt me in the admissions process?

How can I manage time on ACT Reading and Science?

I have a lot of trouble on the reading and ACT science reasoning sections. I get around a 30 if I complete the whole Reading section on practice tests without any worry for time. With the science reasoning, it's random. I sometimes have enough time to do great or sometimes I miss out on a full exper...
