Can I eliminate choices?

Can I plug in answer choices?

ACT math problems get more difficult as you progress. The easiest problems are in the beginning and the hardest problems are at the end. Seems like the logical thing to do is just go in order. However, what is easy for one student may not be easy for another.  For example,  an AP math student may struggle with Pre-Algebra due to not remembering how to do these type of problems.  A student who has not been exposed to higher math it would be practically impossible to answer these type of questions.     With that in mind, you definitely want to answer the easier questions first, then go back to the more difficult problems.

How The Process Works:

  1. Read Problem
  2. Immediately solve problems that are the easiest and fastest
  3. If you identify problems that will take a long- circle it and move on
  4. If you read a problem and are clueless,  put an x and move on
  5. Once you reached # 60, quickly attempt problems from step three
  6. If time allows go back and attempt the problem that left you stumped


Wrapping Everything Up

Consequently, each question is worth one point, so don’t spend too much time trying to solve one problem this may cause you to rush on easier problems and causing simple errors. Just remember, when you use answers given, it saves you time and prevents miscalculations.  Most of all remember, stay calm and be confident that you CAN reach your potential.
