ACT TEST PREP Continued ......

What is a Diagnostic Test?

Ideally your ACT Test Prep should start with an initial ACT practice test which is also known as the Diagnostic Test. Taking the Diagnostic Test is a very important step in ACT Test Prep. It helps you immensely in identifying your weaknesses and strengths. The result of this initial ACT practice test plays a very important role in determining your chances of scoring high in the ACT test.

The Diagnostic Test may not be able to accurately forecast your performance in the actual ACT test, but it definitely gives you a fair idea of the subject areas where you need to put in extra effort. The results of the Diagnostic Test will reflect the level of your knowledge and skills in the subject areas which are tested by the ACT. You can use this information to plan your ACT Test Prep in such a way that you are able to dedicate extra time and effort in developing your skills in the weaker subject areas.

Will an ACT Test Prep Course be useful?

After you have carried out the initial Diagnostic Test, you should compare your weak subject areas with the content tested by the ACT. If you find that your weaknesses are related with a major part of the content tested by the ACT then it would be advisable for you to register for an ACT Test Prep course.

It is quite possible that you may like to enroll with a test prep institute because of its proximity to your home or because of a cheaper registration fee.
