Are silly mistakes inevitable?

Hello! I got a 33 composite on my December ACT and will be taking it again in April. I know it's a great score but I really want to aim for a 35 at least. I had practiced around 2 full papers a day before my December test. I realised that most of the mistakes I make are not because of a lack of kno...

Same Exact SAT Score?

I took my first SAT Practice test and got a 1130. The next time I did significantly worse and got a 1040. Now, I have taken another practice test and got a 1130 again! Is this normal?

Actual ACT test drastically different than my Practice tests

I take practice tests at home with the same official time limit, sometimes 5 minutes less in order to compensate for filling out the bubbles. I get about composite 32-34 range with the practice tests. I have only taken the previously administered tests. I've also all the tests from the red ACT book,...

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?

Is the ACT harder than the SAT?

I just took an ACT practice test, and it seemed super hard to me in comparison to the SAT! I ran out of time on everything except Math (which I actually thought was relatively easy). I was most pressed for time on Reading, and I had a hard time understanding the Science section. I didn't have any ti...

Which SAT practice tests should I use after I've finished all the official ones?

The SAT prep Black Book (whose methods I am a big believer in) insists that you should only use real College Board practice tests, and I get its point. What's the best alternative to official tests, or what do I do next? Thanks for your time! Regards satstudentx

Should I take notes while taking SAT practice tests?

Is it useful or detrimental to take notes while taking practice tests? I like to take notes, especially on the reading section, so that I can go back and review what I was thinking at the time. I know that practice tests are supposed to be taken under “realistic” conditions, but I feel like this rea...

What is a normal score drop between SAT Practice Tests?

I’ve been studying for the SAT for a couple of months now, and I just took my second practice test. For some reason my score dropped 60 points from my first practice test (1260 to 1200)!

Are the practice tests from the Red Book also on ACT.org?

I'm wondering if the Red Book (Real Act Prep Guide) merely contains the same tests found on ACT.org, or if they are completely different. If so, are the ones in the Red Book better? I'm referring to the five tests provided on the ACT website.

I’ve already taken the old SAT, the new PSAT, and just recently the ACT. I also just finished my PARCC testing, and I’ll have my AP tests next month.

ACT Online Prep

Hello, I read in one of your posts about the best ways to prep for the ACT that their online prep program is useful only for the practice test, but the lessons are "no good." I bought the online program before I read this, and I really trust the PrepScholar advice. I was wondering if you could expla...

ACT practice tests: Answer explanations?

I took my first ACT practice test last Saturday, and I've been going through my answers and trying to learn from my mistakes.

I've done pretty well on the ACT, but I still want to improve my Reading score (I'm around a 29/30 right now, and I'd like to get up into the 33-36 range).

Is it possible to take too many SAT practice tests?

Assuming I start studying 2 weeks before the SAT, would 3 practice tests in a week plus review be too much and would that burn me out? Please advise. Thank you!

Necessary to take full practice tests when studying for the SAT?

I have the SAT Blue Book, and I'm wondering if I should do the full practice tests or if I can just do sections. I don't have many opportunities to spend an extended period of time on practice testing. Will it matter if I do mostly individual sections when I study?
