ACT® Exam Prep (Pre-2016)

ACE the ACT with Shmoop.

You might be under the impression that the ACT® is the tool of Big Brother, the Devil, Voldemort, or Darth Vader. We're here to assure you that this impression is totally false. Despite the ominous acronym that has been striking fear into the hearts of high school students for decades, the ACT® is actually a friendly test, and you can prepare for it. Really.

Yes, your performance on this exam will determine a meaningful chunk of your academic future (namely, where you go to college), but you have two secret weapons on your side: practice and preparation. Wait, make that three secret weapons: practice, preparation, and Shmoop.

This edition of ACT® Test Prep is brought to you by the September 2015 updates to the Writing portion, including broader prompts and modified scoring standards.
