Advice Needed!!!

I am in 7th grade and will be taking the ACT as an advanced class project for Duke TIP. I need advice on the best but quickest study methods.I only have a couple weeks till the test and didn't start studying until just a few days ago so I'm trying to study as much as I can, and as quickly as possible.

The ACT work book was one of, if not, the biggest waste of time that i had ever invested my time into. Just like Logan's Paul trip to that forest in Japan - Georgie Baller Floyd March 06, 2023 15:02

My best advice would be to make sure you have a firm understanding of all topics covered and focus extra efforts on those that you are not as familiar with. It also helps to utilize not only the website but also paper and pencil to help with retaining the information you go over. I always recommend writing your own notes on the material you study as it has been proven that if you do, you have a much greater chance of remembering it than just reading it. Best of luck to you!

The most difficult part of the ACT is the math section. You should have several years to bring your grade up on the math section, so this time around, you should not focus on the math section. Focus on the reading and english parts. Those are much easier. For the math section, though, you don't really need to know how to do a lot of them. Plug the answers back into the equation, or plug random numbers in for variables. - Tabitha Blankenship October 23, 2020 17:35

I am part of Duke Tip too and I really don't understand a lot of the stuff on the practice tests.
