When should I start preparing for the ACT?
Go the library, get a stack of novels and start reading. Suggestions, Tamora Pierce, Eragon series, if you like fantasy, Battlefield Earth (long but great, especially the first half, after the rescue of all it sort of gets a little boring, although still funny when the “little gray man” comes calling”, and Day of the Triffids (my brother said it was the best book he ever read as a teen) if science fiction.
If you like terror, read “Coma”, that scene in the freezer terrified me.
Classics? Pride and Prejudice, hands down. Every girl can related to Elizabeth’s chagrin when she finds out she had been deceived.
Biographies: Madame Curie by Eve Curie. Just a beautifully written book (and it will increase your vocab, if you need that incentive to read this absorbing book).
I love Irving Stone’s biographies. He wrote about Michelangelo. Imagine, Michelangelo said he could feel what the marble was telling him about where to cut. He would be cutting thru the middle of the marble and just knew where to cut. Mystical.
Historical novels: James Michener’s books actually give a lot of the true history of a place when he writes his stories.
The HOt Zone if you want to scare yourself (about the Ebola virus), and also E.coli 0157 to really understand those e.coli infections people are getting from places like Jack in the Box hamburger fast-food restaurants. A mom’s terror as her handsome son got the infection and not much was known about how to treat it–in fact, her son’s care, which was pure hunch and guesswork by one great physician, illuminated the best path to treatment.
All this with one little question! Sorry, I do love reading and get carried away.
With math, well, it is algebra, geometry and trig (some), so start working with workbooks now, like half an hour a day.
Science seems to kill everyone. My gifted kids all got either 24 or 26, even the one with an excellent science background. I have heard it is a bunch of charts that have to be read quickly, someone else said studying statistics to prepare for that science test might be more worthwhile.
Writing? Someone wrote a really good answer to this whole question within the last 3 weeks. Why don’t you key in this question where it says to check the qustion history, I think it might be below the
ASK ANSWER DISCOVER line. You can find that great answer that way. Some Asian guy, as I recall, answered with a numbered list!
