ACT Test Preparation in Queens, NY

Like the SAT, the ACT is a nationally administered, standardized test that helps colleges to evaluate student candidates. Colleges currently accept the ACT or SAT interchangeably. What this means is that students have the autonomy to take the exam that best suits their skills and preferences. In many cases, students actually prepare to take both exams in order to better their chances of receiving a good score and getting into the college of their choice. Below are several points detailing the five sections of the ACT. As you browse the question types in each section, ask yourself which exam, the ACT or SAT, best suits your own academic skills.

  • ACT English (45 mins): 40 usage/mechanics, 35 rhetorical skills
  • ACT Mathematics (60 mins): 14 pre-algebra, 10 elementary algebra, 9 intermediate algebra, 9 coordinate geometry, 14 plane geometry, 4 trigonometry
  • ACT Reading (35 mins): 10 social studies, 10 natural sciences, 10 literary narrative, 10 humanities
  • ACT Science (35 mins): 15 data representation, 18 research summary, 7 conflicting viewpoint
  • ACT Writing (40 mins): write a response to a question about your position on an issue
