ACT prep in Sugar Land, TX

05/20/2015
Your biggest asset when taking your college entrance exams is not how much you know intellectually, but rather how good you are at taking the designed test. Tests such as the SAT and ACT measure a student’s general knowledge that they typically learn before grade 10. So while it is important to review the information, it’s much more valuable to understand the test format. To help you best prepare for your college application process, The Tutoring Center in Sugar Land has a few test tips to help you on the day of the exam. For additional one-to-one ACT help call us at (281) 980-1242 for more information.

Know the Format

The SAT and ACT have different, yet similar formats. You will be tested on the major academic areas: math, science, reading and writing. Each of these sections is strictly timed, so taking practice exams beforehand will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses. Always focus on the easier questions first and return to harder questions if time permits.

Make the Test Yours

You paid to take the test so it rightfully belongs to you. Make as many notes and marks on the actual test as you need. During the math section, do your scratch-work in the margins of your booklet, directly next to the problem. Eliminate wrong answers as you read them by marking them with an x for example on multiple choice exams such as the ACT or SAT, where eliminating wrong answers greatly improves your chances of guessing correctly.

Power Up

Usually these tests are held early on a Saturday morning at a local high school. Prepare yourself by eating a balanced dinner before going to bed and definitely get a full night’s sleep. When you wake up, give yourself plenty of time to get ready. Showering is helpful to energize and feel refreshed. Whatever you do, DO NOT skip breakfast! Eat a nice protein rich ‘brain food’ meal. It’s also not a bad idea to take a few energy bars and arrive early and right before the exam starts, have a snack to really prepare yourself.

Taking the SAT or ACT can be intimidating but with the right preparations, you will be fine. Stay calm and know that you can do it! Throughout your test preparation, use all the resources available to you. One-to-one instruction from a professional learning center is monumentally invaluable.
