TuesdACT Video: Top 3 Tips for the NEW ACT Essay


In this episode of TuesdACT, I’m giving away tips (like candy, only better!) on the BRAND NEW ACT Essay coming to the exam starting with the September 2015 test. Personally, I think it’s a real shame the ACT has released so little information on this new essay because it is quite different–including a new 40 minute time limit instead of the 30 you had before! Check out the video above for my top three tips on how to plan, organize and support the new ACT essay. You can also check out my post, The New ACT Essay FAQs, for even MORE tips and FAQs on the new ACT Writing test!
