8 to be Great:  Quick Test Tips & Strategies

  1. Gather your gear the night before: admission ticket, photo ID, #2 pencils, water, calculator with fresh batteries (SAT only), a watch and snacks for breaks.
  2. Forget cramming and just enjoy a healthy dinner and a good night's sleep.
  3. Dress in comfortable layers so you can handle the temperature, whatever it is.
  4. Be familiar with directions to the test center and arrive early.
  5. Don't spend too much time on any one question as they all count the same; come back to the question later if you have time.
  6. Make an educated guess if you can eliminate more than one answer. ALWAYS guess on the ACT because there is no penalty for wrong answers.
  7. Fill in bubbles carefully making sure that you mark the answers next to the right numbers.
  8. Relax and be confident as your attitude will make all the difference.
