have to take the ACT tomorrow at 8 in the morning, not looking forward to it. Being sick on top of it doesn't help at all. :-°

you know, I never really got around to the reason for my post, Nyquil will do that to you. What I meant to ask was have any of you taken it and how was it?

Try and do whatever you can to get a decent night's sleep, without ending up with a drug hangover. It sucks that you're in this situation. Go straight to bed if you can. Instead of trying to get 8/8 hours of sleep, maybe try for 8/10 hours of sleep if you're coughing, etc.

I too took the SAT, not ACT. I wish you the best of luck!

It is not too bad. If you're not sure about an answer though, move on. With the strict time limits there is no reason to panic if you're stumped on an answer. Move on and address it later.

Also, don't fret about it too much. I did OK (a 25) and I am dumb as rocks. I have a friend who got a 31 and he is one of the dumber people I have ever met, and I have a friend at Northwestern who got a 20 his first time. It's not the end of the world, and you can always take it more than once so just keep working at it. ;-D

I just took the SAT in Jan., going to take the ACT in Apr. There is really no downside to taking it, because you aren't required to submit your scores.

I won't mention my score... :) Sleep and not worrying is key IMO. Cramming a whole bunch right now isn't gonna help, It'll just clutter your mind. Relax and get some sleep. ;-D

I took both in high school. Took the SAT twice and the ACT once. IMO, the ACT was so much easier. I did absolutely nothing to prepare for it and finished each section so early that I was able to fit in long naps inbetween. The test administrator was cool enough to wake me for each break, lol.

Blue mentioned that morons can do well on the ACT. I've seen real smart people bomb on it too, so don't stress too much about it.
