- Finding out what the test entails, where the testing takes place, and at what date and time
- Acquainting yourself with the requirements of the ACT test, amount of questions on the test, time limits, and test duration
- Developing a practical study schedule
- Taking practice tests, as often and as many as necessary
- Focusing your mind on the projected goal of completing the ACT test with high scores, rather than on the fear that you'll fail, get low scores, forget everything you know, or never finish all those questions in time.
The simple wisdom of these pointers rests in the knowledge that those who work hard and do their best most often get the best results. Your attitude and approach to the ACT test are as important as the knowledge you bring with you to the test-taking. If you're fearful, nervous or worried, you'll tear down your own chances of finishing the questions in time and with a high level of accuracy. Building your confidence is a highly-recommended step to take before applying for the ACT test.
The ACT test is only a stepping-stone to the greater things you're going to do in your life; it's a step forward into your dreams for the future. Taking that step might be the most difficult thing you've ever done, or you may hardly notice it among the thousands of other steps, big and small, that comprise your life and career. In either case, taking the time to carefully prepare in every way for the test won't do you any harm whatsoever, and you'll be so glad you did, when the test is behind you, and you stand facing a brilliant future with your high test scores in your pocket.
