As you may know, the ACT is coming up in March. It is a very stressful test and it could determine a lot when it comes to your college career. It is no joke that a lot of the ACT is composed of things you may not remember or do not know, so it is important that you do not shortchange yourself; study to your fullest potential! Here are some tips to help you get the best score possible.
