 Tip #1

Plan to take the April ACT during junior year, and plan to make this at least your student’s second or third test. Why? The April test appears to be a favorable test based on my student history because

• the April test historically is somewhat “easier” than the other two released tests in December and June, and

• most students have experienced at least one test, kicking the anxiety to the curb and allowing a student to focus in on the sections most needed for score improvement
