Four ACT Test Hacks You Can’t Live Without


ACT Test Hacks that Will Immediately Improve Your Score

This episode of TuesdACT is a good one if I do say so myself. I go over some of my favorite hacks for the ACT test, one for each of the the four multiple choice sections of the ACT:

English: Let’s talk about the FANBOYS.

Math: Using your answer sheet as a ruler and protractor (It’s true!)

Reading: Paying attention to the first and last sentences of paragraphs. (That’s where the most important information is 90% of the time).

Science: A special strategy for answering those impossible “Yes/No, Because…” questions. You might be able to get the answer without even reading the question!

Seriously, guys, check it out!
