    1. Don't study too much. You'll forget.
    2. Eat a good breakfast.
    3. Don't rush yourself.
    4. If you can use calculators, bring 2 graphing calculators.

    I might suggest killing yourself... Unless you are ready to hear all of the gurgling stomachs in a dead silent room for 4 hours.

    It's been proven that eating a good breakfast gets you better scores.
    How do you not know that :/

    Because a decent breakfast is the nitrous oxide your brain craves in the morning.
    I highly recommend something greasy and fattening. I know it sounds like bullshit, but just trust me.
    Sausage is brain food.

    I think he meant why would you bring 2 calculators?

    O.O

    Oh. 2 Calculators....

    Forgive me. I didn't have my sausage today.


    (On a side note, I helped 6 people pass their ACT with better scores using a single TI-81 graphing calculator. )

    Don't spend too much time on a question. I barely had time to finish because I pondered 1 or 2 stupid questions.

    ACT tests and SAT tests aren't that bad. Theres already been some good advice. A good nights rest does wonders as well. A good breakfast helps as well as going prepared. Oh, and I suggest not getting a nose bleed during the test. When I was taking the test some kid in front of me got a nose bleed. I felt bad for him since he was pretty much screwed.

    Yeah, get protein yo. shit like donuts will just fux u up cuz you'll get a sugar rush then crash prolly half way thru test

    besides, its just the act. if u fail i think you can take it again..
    if u get to the pt. where u feel like youve missed all the questions, throw up on your paper and u can retest l8r

    good luck. dont fuck up

    I agree with Linki on that point. In fact, if you feel overwhelmed by a question and feel your time slipping away, just move on to the next question and put the previous one to the back of your mind. Save it for a second-run through the questions that you skipped/gave your trouble, if time allows.

    Good luck and stay frosty! [​IMG]

    I didn't expect to say it, but Linkiboy is right, in this case.

    If the question is beyond you, move beyond it. You'll be glad you did.

    But isnt it important to circle every answer for each test, regardless of time?

    just bring extra batteries? unless you're that much time crunched that you don't have time to switch batteries.

    It is a whole lot easier than the SAT.
    Don't stress out about it too much.


    Oh and remember that the questions you leave blank don't go toward your score. If you missed a question, however, you are marked for it.
