1 Month Study Schedule for the ACT

Ok, so we don’t really recommend starting your studying for the ACT one month before test day…but we know how things go. Sometimes a 1 month ACT study schedule is just what you need. So here’s your ONE MONTH STUDY PLAN for the ACT. Just in time for the April 4th test!

A schedule ensures you’ll study for every section of the test with time left over for practice tests and reviewing difficult concepts. It helps you stay on track with your goals and, if well-implemented, should lead to an increase in your ACT score! This schedule is based on our free ACT course – just head to www.olive-book.com to enroll for free and start studying right away.

What if I Plan to Take the ACT Twice?

Many students take the ACT at least twice and studies have shown that around 57% of students’ scores increase the second time they take the test! We recommend that students take the ACT at least twice for this reason.

It’s best practice to take your second ACT on the next available test date so you stay fresh. ACT tests are usually about eight weeks apart, which is plenty of time to hone in on and fix mistakes you made on your first test.

Creating a Second ACT Study Schedule

Studying for your second ACT test is your chance to focus on the areas of the test that really trip you up. 

You’ll usually get your scores from the first test back after two to four weeks. Take a break the week after the test (you’ve earned it!) and then use the time before you get your score report back to think about how the first ACT test went; Did you run out of time? Did you struggle with a particular section, or with certain kinds of questions? What will you do differently when you take the test again?

Then you can begin some focused studying for your second ACT test. Once you get your score report back, use the “Detailed Results” section of the report to figure out the kinds of questions you missed. Then, take the next weeks before your test to study those specific content areas you struggled in on your first test.
