I've seen myriads of posts regarding SAT prep, but have only rarely seen any regarding ACT prep.

So, how are/do you prep for the ACT?

im just bought princeton review "cracking the ACT" to bring up my 28 (30-36-22-23) I obviously need help on the reading and science so hopefully its good.

The official ACT publication was very helpful---Getting into the ACT: Official Guide to the ACT Assessment.

Both of those already mentioned are really good - would definitely get both!

i just read the entire science section in Princeton Review..very comprehensive and I think it will help me a lot on time because it tells you exactly what to look for and where to look for it. If you have trouble finishing this test (which many people do) i recommend it.

I just take the practice test in the booklet ACT sends you after you register.

I used a tiny little book (I think called "Passkey to the ACT"), did a lot of verbal, reviewed math rules...score went up 3 pts.

My thoughts on the Peterson's ACT prep book: It's a monstrous book. And for some reason, despite the fact that the ACT does not test vocabulary, it has hundreds of little vocab flash cards in the back. The practice tests in there are extremely difficult, and will give you some nice low self-esteem before the test. Don't worry though, the grammar questions etc. in there are miles above even the hardest that you can expect to see on the test. Science, on the other hand, you never can tell...

Is there a way to raise the science reasoning score? I got a 33 composite (33.25, one away from a 34...), english-34, math-35, reading-35, science-29. But since I am planning to go into --take a guess--science, this score really annoys me...
