The Official Beginner’s Guide for the ACT

Students wondering if they should take the ACT® test don’t have to wait until their junior year to decide.

The best part? The score report is available immediately after completing the test, so students can use results to identify areas to focus on sooner!  

In addition to the code to take the PreACT Diagnostic, the Beginner’s Guide covers everything students need to know about the enhancements being made to the ACT, including section retesting, faster results with online testing, and the benefits of superscoring.
