Selected Tips & Strategies

  • Pace yourself wisely. For most students, this means using about 25 minutes for the first thirty questions and the remaining 35 minutes for the last thirty questions. Remember, this is the only section of the ACT where questions are mostly arranged in order of difficulty.
  • Diagrams are almost always drawn to scale, even though ACT claims otherwise. Use this knowledge to your advantage to help estimate.
  • Calculators are allowed; use your calculator when necessary.
