If you’re new to the ACT, you may be wondering how the whole scoring thing works. What is a good ACT score in 2019, and how do you figure out what your own goal score should be?
This month, we wanted to share the books that we’ve been reading for fun and would recommend to a friend (you!). From popular fiction to creative treatises and non-fiction, The Olive Book staff has been reading quite a variety of material recently, and we hope there is something that piques your interest:
You can study for the ACT test each year of high school in varying degrees of intensity. Your freshman year, you just need to know that the ACT test is out there and to monitor your performance on in-school cumulative assessments.
Sophomore year is about figuring out your baseline score on the ACT test. You can find this out by taking the PreACT or a timed, paper practice test at home.
Junior year is ACT crunch time. To start the year in a good place, set some time aside for test prep the summer before your junior year.
This year, including the summer prior to the start of the year, is for ensuring you have the ACT score you need, visiting colleges, applying to colleges, and getting into (at least one) college.
