It can be hard if you let it be. But you can also make it easy.

The key is getting a practice book and doing all the practice tests, and doing them under the proper time limit, and then carefully going over each question and each solution and see why you were right or wrong. Figuring out the proper way to approach each section, etc.

Prepare really really hard for it, basically. It's something you can easily study for. And getting a good grade pays off.

I studied a lot for it, and I managed to get a 32. And, essentially because of one test, I get to go to college for free, rather than putting my family in debt and all that. It's an important test. If you talk to your guidance counselor about studying for the ACT, then he or she will usually help you out.

And, if possible, try to take it multiple times. Sometimes that science section will screw you over >_>

I haven't taken the ACT, and it's actually been a very long time since I took any standardized test. How difficult these are really depends on your knowledge and test-taking skills.

I'm locking this because it's a personal thread, which are not allowed. (See our site rules

However, there is a special thread that exists especially for asking for help and advice, so please do post there instead.
