ACT Reading Section Highlights

  • There are 4 passages to read and 10 questions for each passage to answer.
  • There is always one dual-reading passage.
  • You have 35 minutes to answer 40 questions.

Selected Tips & Strategies

  • Again, there is no penalty for guessing on the ACT. You need to get to all four reading passages. This means you should not spend too much time on any one question. You should take about 4 minutes to read the passage and about 5 minutes to answer the questions.
  • Read the passage first, and then answer the questions. (DO NOT READ THE QUESTIONS FIRST; IT IS A MASSIVE WASTE OF TIME.)
