WHAT IS COVERED IN THE ACT TEST?
The ACT has four main sections: ACT English, ACT Math, ACT Science, and ACT Reading.
ACT MATH TUTORING:
The ACT Math section is one of four sections on the ACT. You are given 60 minutes to complete 60 questions and you do not need a calculator to solve any of the problems. You are not provided a reference sheet so knowing basic formulas and concepts is essential. The math section is not ordered by topic but there are six main topics you will be questioned on: Elementary Algebra (15-20%), Intermediate Algebra (15-20%), Coordinate Geometry (15-20%), Plane Geometry (20-25%) , and Trigonometry (5-10%).
ACT ENGLISH TUTORING
The first section of the ACT you will take will always be English. The ACT English section is 75 questions and you are given 45 minutes to answer, that’s only 36 seconds per question so it’s important to be strategic. There are two broad content areas you will be tested on: Usage and Mechanics (Punctuation, Grammar, Sentence Structure) , and Rhetorical Skills (Strategy, Organization, and Style). The approximate breakdown of the test is as follows: Punctuation (10-15%), Grammar and Usage (15-20%), Sentence Structure (15-20%), Strategy (15-20%), Organization (15-20%), Style (10-15%). Its is also important to note that you will not be tested on vocabulary or spelling in the ACT English section.
