I am taking the ACT tomorrow. Is anyone else going to be taking this test with me across the U.S.? If so how did you prepare? And for those of you experienced with the ACT are there any tips you have to offer?

Nope. I don't really have any tips, because I didn't actually study, and I ended up getting a 32 somehow. Just don't fall asleep in the middle of the test. I know people who did.

Go to bed early, dude. (Assuming it's an 8am test.) Early, grueling tests are dreadful. Look over a bit of trig this evening, but other than that, there's not a whole lot of "studying' you can do.

(ACT: 34.)

Make sure you know your trig stuff for math (sin, cos, tan) as it appears on there a lot. and read the questions carefully. I didn't study and my math section suffered. Still got a 32 the first time though.

I didn't get much sleep at all.

I probably would have done better if I had.

Unlike you're average state given standardized test, the ACT actually takes the whole time given to complete for most people. Take your time but not too much time.

I didn't study for the ACT or SAT. I also had diarrhea during the ACT and would strongly recommend avoiding that. I did pretty well on both, the proctor got pissed I was in the bathroom for so long though

Sorry, I forgot. Hopefully my memory will serve me better tomorrow.

Poll fail, no "none" option.
I didn't take it or the SAT. I took the ASVAB which I scored extremely well on. US Air Force for me. Starting in a wee bit.
