Class of 2025: The One Thing Juniors Should Do Right Now
Prepare for the ACT Test or SAT
Spring of junior year is the best time for students to take the ACT® test. If your students follow this philosophy and have registered for a test date this spring, you may ask, “What’s best way to start prepping?”
How exactly you prep will depend on how much time you have and your personal preferences. But, here are four things anyone can do to start preparing for the ACT test:
1. Take a practice test.
The first thing is to download this FREE study guide, and take the full practice test. Doing so will allow your students to familiarize themselves with the format and types of questions asked. Also, this practice test will give students an idea of their strengths and areas for improvement.
2. Plan study time
Students should set aside small amounts of time for studying until their test. Based on how you scored on the practice test, you should focus on the subject areas that need improvement during these planned study sessions.
3. Look at ACT test prep options
Once your schedule is set, look at this guide, which presents you with all of our test prep options. With it, anyone can find a tool that fits their style, preferences, and budget.
4. Keep a positive attitude
You should practice positive thinking through the entire process leading up to the test. Encourage them to imagine sitting in the test room, bubbling answers on the scantron, and meeting the challenge of the exam.
