Hey everyone,

I left public school when I was in the 5th grade,and I started homeschooling. Only,no work got done because of family issues and I eventually quit when I was old enough.

I will be getting my GED soon,and I want to start college next year (Nursing). Of course,you must have ACT scores. Now,my question is,how can I study for the test if I know absolutely nothing? I've been taking GED classes,which have taught me basic math.. but I didn't think that was enough for the ACT. So,what should I do to make sure I'm able to get a good score? Should I just buy self-teaching algebra/geometry books and study those?

Also,what about the Science part of the test? Is that just common sense stuff,like reading charts and graphs to get your answer? Or do I need to study for that too?

I hope someone can help.

I would start with a good ACT prep book like Cracking the ACT, so you can see what's being tested and how much you'll need to learn. Then I'd go from there.
