HORRIBLE!

Hello, I took my ACT test today, and I think I epicly failed the english part. The part where you had to correct the underlined sentence was really hard. I would narrow it down to 2 answers, but obviously only one can work. Both of them looked correct to me. Also, the read the passage and answer the question part destroyed me. I would read it, and when I read the question I found myself either not comprehending the story or going back to reread it. This cause me not to have enough time to finish it throughly. Do you have any tips? I'll be getting my scores back in 2 weeks.

  1. There are several sites in here that can help you interpret your scores, once you get them:
    https://www.google.com/search?q=act+test+interpretation

    If it's primarily one area that gave you fits (the editing portion, it sounds like), then you might go through some of the practice ACT tests and see how you do. Post the questions and potential answers and tell us which one or two answers you think are correct.

    Here are a couple of the best sites I've found to help you study things about English sentences:
    http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/
    In Word & Sentence level, you'll find all the basic grammar including punctuation. In Paragraph Level, you'll find places to help make okay sentences better. Click on Index to look for other types of grammar/usage issues you are faced with.
