It’s 48 hours away, but there’s still time to act on the ACT

blog-timeline-prep

Try teaching yourself 11 school years worth of English, reading, mathematics, and scientific reasoning in a few days. On second thought, don’t. Very soon, you’ll be breezing through the English, reading, math, and scientific reasoning sections of the ACT, but traditional cramming isn’t going to help you get there.

3 Reasons Why Traditional Last-Minute Cramming Won’t Help You Ace the ACT:

  1. You’ll tire yourself out by taking several long practice tests that will only frustrate you. The ACT will test you on years of material that you’ve learned throughout your school career. Long practice tests in the final moments leading up to the ACT won’t improve your knowledge or help you isolate your strengths and weaknesses. You’ll only exhaust yourself.
  2. There’s too much material. You may attempt to furiously memorize ACT vocab, but the chances that the specific words you’ve agonized over will appear on the test are quite small. The time you’ll spend making flashcards won’t be worth the score reward.
  3. You won’t know what to focus on. Beyond the four main sections of the ACT, the test is a web of concepts that test very specific abilities. Without guidance, you won’t be able to target your true weaknesses.

On the other hand, Edupath’s free College Passport for ACT app can help you soar on test day by targeting your prep and maximizing every precious minute of study time.

  4. Immediate and accurate score predictions. As soon as you finish a burst of questions, Edupath will update your progress. Watch your score and confidence grow instantly.
