Is the science section of the ACT very difficult?

My daugher, who normally excels in science, said that the science section of the ACT was brutal. Do students generally feel that it is very difficult? What resources would you recommend to help her feel more confident for the next test date?

Time management on ACT Science?

How much time should I spend on each passage in ACT Science? Should I plan to spend different amounts of time on different types of passages? I'm having trouble pacing myself appropriately - I always end up missing like 3 or 4 questions at the end.

Should I skip straight to the questions on ACT Science?

I've tried reading the passage first, and I've tried skipping straight to the questions. I got the same score with both strategies (26, but I'm hoping for a 29+). Which strategy gives me the best chance of improving my score next time?
